We get simplicity when it comes to your closet, but let’s face it: that snowboarding jacket you bought five years ago won’t exactly work at the office or on a first date. It’s time to finally dress right for the circumstances, guys, and MF is here to help you do it.
So whether you’re looking to buy a proper slopes-ready coat or want to add some more stylish outerwear to the mix, choose your winter jackets wisely to make sure you get the most for your money. For a sporty winter jacket, durability is key. You’ll want a waterproof, windproof, rugged exterior and a warm synthetic insulation. For a casual jacket, go for comfort and versatility. But be warned: don’t skimp on quality and fit. "A jacket that fits right will leave you looking better and feeling warmer," says Hadley Whittemore, Clothing Sales Specialist at REI Seattle. "The trick is to try on lots of jackets before making your final decision."
