Fashionable and warm winter jackets?

Hey guys, winter is creeping up. Do want a few new winter jackets for this season. Any suggestions? Preferably semiformal or jackets you could wear button ups and business attire with.
Thanks!

You can never go wrong with a wool coat for business attire.


Trench coat style or the shorter jacket style. Take your pick!

Fabric: Wool, wool, wool! Cheaper coats will have a wool blend, often with higher concentrations of polyester. Wool is warmer and wears better.

Styles:

Car Coat:


Pea Coat (could probably find these cheaper at a military surplus store):


Note: J. Crew makes a pea coat lined with Thinsulate synthetic insulation which would be super warm.

Duffle/Toggle Coat:


Trenchcoat (3/4 length shown, full length will hit the knee - tie the belt, you'll look better):


Stylish, less warm choices: (add some layers underneath)

Chore Coat:


Leather Jacket: (double rider shown)

(lol I've been looking at some coats to buy recently too)

Other brands: Barbour, Filson, Norse Projects, Club Monaco, Zara, H&M, etc. (obviously these brands aren't all the same quality)

Indochino has also recently started offering outerwear and the jackets all look pretty damn good, but the jury is still out on quality.

Alternatively, you could always go the Canada Goose/Nobis/Mooseknuckle route but it's never THAT cold in Van, and they don't really fit the bus-cas/semi-formal look

When it comes to most jackets altogether, I've always liked G-Star. I'm not a fan of the brand altogether, but I've always liked their selection and fits of jackets. I have a leather, a wool, a thick winter bomber, and a couple light casuals from them.

@OP
If you're allergic to wool, your choices are a little limited when it comes to stylish semi-formal..

If it were me, and wool/leather was out of the question, I'd go with a soft-shell from Arc'teryx, Columbia, North Face, or something of that sort. It's a little more of a grown-up smart look, but it makes sense in your situation. Also these jackets are durable and warm as hell. Had one for 3 years and still looks like-new.

I was looking at the Hybridge too. This is one of the few things I'd actually consider from Canada Goose.

The parkas are way too overkill. They're made for mountains and extreme conditions. It's never gonna be cold enough in Vancouver to actually need that heavy of a jacket. One of my friends was wearing one on one of the coldest Vancouver days, and he was sweating from wearing just a t-shirt under the parka.

I hate how they've become more of a fashion statement/status symbol than anything.

But hey.. to each their own.

Yeah, I was looking for a peacoat type thing as well..
I saw one at Guess which was $200, but I think that's too expensive for something from Guess, no?
I want one as the OP said, semi-formal, pea coat type thingy but not like the top collars going outwards, I want it more of a turtle-neck type which you zip up then button..
Any suggestions? I am looking for one around $100, not too expensive. I tried H&M but they're way to short.

Try cotton instead of wool.

You want a car coat, but at $100, your choices are slim. H&M and F21 come to mind. If you've got a proxy in the states, you could try Uniqlo for $99.90

I'm not sure where that's from. I just snagged the photo off the web. Just based on the photo, though, I think it's a Club Monaco coat from an old collection.

Most mens clothing brands will carry something like it. Check out H&M, Zara, Qlo on the cheap end, J. Crew, Club Monaco, etc. if you're willing to spend more. And of course Burberry if you're super loaded.

fashionable jackets usually arent terribly warm.
the good thing is that the more you layer under them the better you look

Good thing you made that call, because if you paid $200 for something from guess, you'd be paying for something with low quality fabric, second tier construction and essentially garbage.

I have one from Columbia that I wear since high school (Yea yea is been over 15years but still fits and looks new). I think in terms jackets I like those skiing sports jacket like NorthFace or Columbia. Sure they might not be in fashion but they are never made to be in fashion.

I use mine since highschool and is still warm. Not to mention is easy to wash too! Just throw it in the washer. Also they last a long time too. I got mine for $299 at that time but is well worth it.

Somethign Warm, Fashionable and for <$100 is hard to find unless its on sale or something. Most fashionable (and acceptable for kinda formal occasions) would be peacoats, duffle coat or that sort. Seeing how you're allergic to wool really limits your options. Maybe look for a down or insulated jacket then, as those are very warm. Price wise, it will likely be >$100

I personally have a North Face jacket (plasma therma, not one of those 700 down jackets) that is really warm (not fashionable) but damn it does the job. Got it super cheap on sale for $120.

I'd recommend getting a peacoat from Temple of Jawnz if you don't mind the incredibly long lead time. Made to measure peacoat, duffle, and really nice leathers, but a bit pricier.

personally vouch for Schott NYC..bought one of their pea coats last year and quality was amazing. Downside was it was super heavy lol..

and if you're looking into that brand..much cheaper to buy from Karmaloop with their occasional 25% to 30% promos

I have been falling in love with the Filson brand. All of their stuff seems to be well built, ultra durable, and all made in the USA. Some of their stuff might be a bit expensive but I'm sure the price is fine if you pay for designer brands.

The tincloth they use is awesome for rain!

Filson, Barbour, and Penfield are great for that Americana/workwear aesthetic.
