Best place to buy a cool-looking, yet still warm winter jacket in NYC (pref. SoHo area)?

I'm looking to buy a stylish winter jacket.. Something like this

Not too expensive. Where can I buy something like that in NYC, preferably SoHo area?

Have you checked out Uniqlo? They are made of cool.

More expensive, but G-Star has some great coats. There's one near Canal/B'Way, and another near Lafayette/Prince.

Seconding uniqlo. They've got some great jackets (that link took me to a list, not an individual product), and some hot puffer ones.

Uniqlo, or Topman (Topshop for men). Both are on Broadway I believe

You should check out Zara's also if you are looking for slim fitting long wool coats.

You could look at Brooklyn Industries - on Lafayette below Houston. They've been having outerwear sales recently. I think they have more in the way of parkas than wool coats.

First check Ina Men on Prince Street just west of Elizabeth, and Ina on Bleecker west of the Bowery — they're couture-consignment shops, and you might find something you really like but would not have wanted to pay the retail price for. I was just in (got a perfect Tse cashmere v-neck sweater for $85) and they had all those styles.

Century 21?

Definitely Uniqlo, as others have said.

I've always been anti-down coats because I don't enjoy looking like a marshmallow and/or walking sleeping bag, but caved this year because Uniqlo's down coats are pretty much as stylish as the things get. They've also got lots of other types of coats.
