Whether you live in a full-time cold weather region or just want to be ready for the worst that old man winter might send your way, you can't go wrong with the Barbour Beaufighter Jacket ($600). Made from heavy-duty 8-oz. pure waxed cotton, the Beaufighter — named after a WWII RAF fighter plane — also features warm, soft quilted lining, polyester sleeve lining to combat stuck sleeves, detachable faux-fur trim on the hood for that Han Solo-on-Hoth look, and seven pockets, five exterior and two interior, for carrying all your goods.
With a classic design dating back to the early 1900s, the Mister Freedom Denim Peacoat ($590) is as much collector's item as it is apparel. Made from "sc301 okinawa" denim - selvedge fabric woven on traditional shuttle looms - the jacket is modeled after a merchant Navy sailor's jacket, and is finished with historically-accurate details like chain-stitched embroidery. Any more vintage and it'd have to come from a consignment shop.
Stay warm and stylish all the way through football season in the Woolrich Tailgating Jacket ($190). Modeled after the company's Classic Wool Field Coat, the Tailgating Jacket keeps the original's plaid design while offering a wool-blend shell, heavy-duty cotton twill lining, a concealed front zipper, a rounded collar with a button tab for wearing it up when it gets really cold, snap-close patch front pockets, hand warmer pockets, a dual-entry rear pocket for accessories, and adjustable waist and sleeve tabs to ensure that the cold stays out and the warmth stays in.
Protect yourself from wind and rain while minimizing bulk with the Aether Stormy Total Eclipse Jacket ($625). This single-layer jacket is made from bonded fabric of Italian cotton and polyester, and features a slim fit, a covered storm flap with zipper and snap closure, button cuffs and epaulette details, a back vent for movement and comfort, and a shaped hood with leather adjuster tabs. Simple yet elegant.
