It is easy to find quilted winter coasts in Chicago as everyone needs protection from the weather in the Windy City. With frigid winter weather frequently dipping below freezing, it is necessary to find a quilted coat to keep you warm during those blistering months. Two top brand names, Burberry and The North Face, are known for quality coats with stylish appeal. Both have set up shop in downtown Chicago, so check out their toasty quilted selection before the snow begins to fall.
Chicago's Magnificent Mile, also known as Michigan Avenue, has hundreds of shops and department stores lining both sides of the streets. When it comes to coats, the most popular designer quilted coats are made by Burberry. Burberry coats are sold in upscale department stores, such as Lord and Taylor, Nordstrom and Bloomingdales. A stand alone Burberry store, with a larger selection than in department stores, is located on North Michigan Avenue between East Erie and East Ontario Street. The well known Burberry Brit Quilted Jacket comes in styles such as Short or Belted, like a trench coat, and ranges from $495 to $750. Each coat is lined with the signature Burberry nova check pattern and is visible once the sleeves are cuffed. Past season styles and colors are available at Burberry outlet stores around the country.
For the coldest of cold weather, quilted coats from The North Face are what to wear. The North Face Metropolis Parka has a 600 count down fill, detachable quilted hood and extends down to the knees for extra protection against harsh Windy City climates. This coat typically runs around $300, but is meant to last for several years. Just like Burberry, North Face has a store on North Michigan Avenue near the Water Tower. Both Burberry and North Face quilted coats are also found in Nordstrom located on North Michigan Avenue at the intersection of East Grand Street, just a few blocks from the river.
