Picking a jacket is not an easy task. You always have to remember that it is the item that people will see the most, yes, it’s the last thing you throw on but it is the first thing people see. You need to decide which style is best for you and to do this you need to ask yourself a couple of questions.
- Do you need a jacket to accent a casual outfit?
- Do you need to keep warm on your daily commute to work?
Once those are answered you can narrow down your choices.

A Quilted Down Jacket:

A topcoat is a perfect coat to wear with a suit, sport coat or blazer, this is because they are similar in structure.
The go-to coat when it is freezing outside and your warmest jacket is a little too casual. A parka is a perfect match and the insulation will keep you warm.
