Here comes winter, which means that men once again confront an unpleasant choice. They can buy a winter coat because it’s stylish…but will it be warm enough? Or they can buy a winter coat that’s warm enough…but is it attractive? Too often, men buy a coat that looks great, but it never ends up being the winter workhorse go-to garment once the weather turns inclement.

So here are five coats for winter that will check every box—they’re beautiful to look at, they’re warm, they’re great to wear and there’s no compromise on style.

Moncler’s winter coat is made from a material called nylon laqué with classic boudin quilting that keeps you warm, toasty and looking great. Their finishing touches that clearly make it Moncler: the slightly off centered two-way zipper closure and the anorak-inspired half-zipper.

You also feel good about the coat because it’s made with RDS-certified sustainable down.

The coat is made of fine wool yarn, featuring a wide lapel that frames the neckline, structurally reinterpreting the iconic Prada triangle. Rainy days will have never looked so good.
