After a year of denial, it's rapidly becoming clear to me that my wool coat is not sufficiently warm enough for Boston winters. I'd like to get something warmer for the 0-32°F zone. Unfortunately, I have a number of weird neuroses about clothes that make finding what I'm looking for more difficult than it should be.
What seems to be the biggest issue is finding a coat that doesn't have a logo on it. I want no writing, no brand names, no icons - nothing. I can live with icon-based (eg no text) logos if I've never heard of them and they're unlikely to mean anything to most people, but would prefer it to be totally clean.
I've got another kind of weird constraint too - I much prefer jackets that aren't trying to be "sporty." I'm a city kid, and for some reason I much prefer avoiding stuff that's designed or marketed or branded for winter sports. I don't ski, I don't hike - I just spend lots of time walking around in a very cold city and want something that keeps me warm without saying "I'd rather be on the slopes right now." I've mostly given up on finding this sort of thing, and most of the examples below have this problem, but I figured I'd mention in case it triggered any ideas.
Some (branded) examples that are pretty close to something I could see myself wearing, if they were unbranded:
Nau makes a lot of stuff that I like (and I have some of their other jackets), but I'm worried that this just isn't heavy enough on its own:
And this is just way overkill, but I like how it looks:
Does anyone have suggestions about places to look for this kind of thing? I'm totally open to other un-branded styles than the stuff I've included above, but it seems like all the wool-based stuff is just not rated for every-day use in sub-zero temperatures and I haven't found much stuff that's warm enough that doesn't have that puffy/down look.
