I hate winter, but it's coming and for once I want to be prepared. I want to buy a 3/4 length coat that is incredibly warm, very sleek and functional (think lots of pockets). Additionally, it has to look good when I'm wearing a suit as well as when I'm wearing casual clothing (jeans & sneakers). (More Inside!)
I currently have a 3/4 length cashmere coat from Hugo Boss which sucks. The pockets are vertical (you put your hands in from the top down) instead of being on a diagonal (where you comfortably slide your hands in naturally). The coat is not very warm at all and it only has two interior breast pockets.
I would like to get a coat that looks along the lines of these coats:
If possible, I would like it to have some sort of 'warmth technology'. Namely, down, or some sort of fancy pants stuff that would keep you warmer than just an additional layer.
Price is, for the most part, not an object. I'll spend up to $1000 on a coat that will last through several winters.
It can be any color as long as it's black.
It has to look sharp when I'm wearing a suit, as I will primarily be wearing this to work.
The coats I put above are indeed sleek, but their style will overshadow their ability to keep me warm. Warmth is key! I hate being cold!
