Is this the ultimate outerwear? It sure seems so.

Best men's topcoats 2023

When you need outerwear that can be worn in any situation (and any winter climate, for that matter), you can't go wrong with a topcoat. It's fashion's cold-weather security blanket—with its distinguished drape and warm woolen construction, it has the uncanny ability to provide comfort and confidence. The ideal topcoat should give you a rugged yet sophisticated swagger because it's almost impossible to look bad in one.

Of course, they've been around for centuries, and while they have never really gone out of style, they certainly took a back seat to other sportier options. Before, the fit was slimmer and more formal, which to say they looked excellent paired with a suit. However, today's fashion landscape has found a perfect intersection between wearing them casually and being more relaxed. Think the aggressive lapels of vintage Armani topcoats, broad-soft shoulders, and a longer length.

Styling this coat is easy, and the versatility truly is like no other. It's meant to be thrown over whatever you're wearing—like an Instagram filter—it instantly upgrades your outfit. Opting for a neutral shade is smart because they can be worn both casually over jeans or with some relaxed tailoring. Sweaters and hoodies look great, along with a wool suit underneath—feel free to pop the collar up whenever the cold air is too much. We've rounded up several overcoats that run the gamut of affordability and luxury. Whatever you decide on, don't forget to cut the back vent and front left-breast pocket—this jacket is too much of a showstopper to be making those rookie mistakes.
