Your coat is important. The right outer layer is what makes the difference between good intentions and a well-executed outfit. And when it comes to outerwear, the overcoat is one option every man should have hanging in his closet. Why? Plain and simply, it will never let you down. From such unimpeachable classics as a camel topcoat or a double-breasted navy coat to more modern interpretations with bold patterns or textures, they make a solid investment and are all but guaranteed to improve your cold weather style.

The right overcoat has the ability to easily and instantly take any outfit to the next level, just by throwing it over whatever you're already wearing. Headed out for drinks? Pull it on over your worn-in jeans and a patterned sweater and you're suddenly upgraded. It works just the same when you toss your coat on with your sweats and sneakers on a weekend morning run to the store. When it comes to your work wardrobe, these lend an air of grown-up respectability to any office-appropriate look. Remember, people see your coat before they see anything else. So feel free to invest accordingly. But the really good news is that there are stellar and stylish options at every price. These coats from some of our favorite brands prove the point.
