There is nothing like a great wool coat for men to help cut the chill of winter. The natural warmth of the material makes it especially attractive for coat production. This is increasingly true as more people look to get away from synthetic fabrics that have dominated the market for so long, squelching the popularity of natural wool. People are rediscovering the natural benefits of wool over synthetics like polyester. Wool is a breathable fabric while polyester isn’t, making it more likely to sweat and itch. The resurgent interest in wool means more designers are making men’s wool coats in a variety of styles and colors. Below is a list of some of the best men’s wool coats on the market today.
This is a heavy coat that still looks sleek and stylish. Perfect for casual attire, this double-breasted coat shows off a classic tailored look, complete with cuffs and back vent. BGSD sells this flexible coat in either black or charcoal. Though it retails for around $200, this is the kind of coat that you will hold on to for years, making the money spent well worth it.
If you are looking for something a little more formal, check out this classic look from Kenneth Cole. This double-breasted trench coat falls just above the knee and is extremely versatile. It is perfect for business casual or casual attire. And the wool/viscose blend increases its natural warmth.
This is another classic design from Michael Kors. Instead of giving this coat the more formal double-breasted design, Kors opted for the more casual single-breasted design. Still, it is a head-turning coat with its tapered fit and low gorged notch collar. The coat is also lined with poly twill in the body and sleeves to ensure maximum warmth. This one is on the pricier side, retailing for over $400, but if you have the cash to spare, it is well worth it.
This casual piece in a classic pea coat style is high-quality, stylish choice. This is not a coat for the financially faint of heart, though. It retails for over $700. But when you look at its intricate design and fine craftsmanship, you will start to see where some of the expense went into it. The offbeat style of the coat is enhanced with dual contrast fabric and slit side pockets. To top it off, the coat is lined with Bemberg, a high quality version of Cupro, the ultimate lining material.
For those on a tighter budget, Structure offers this casual utility coat, retailing for about $70. It is a versatile coat with detachable layers to change its look. There is, for instance, a zip-out hood/storm flap. There are also a multitude of pockets for your convenience, including four on the front of the coat and two interior pockets. The coat is also fully lined with polyester.
