Quilted coats with shape: Neat.

Quilted downy coats will keep you warm, but traditional styles also reduce you to a shapeless blob in the process. One of our favourite developments in men's outerwear has to be the emergence of fitted coats that take cues from blazers and suit coats, such as shorter lengths, proper lapels and/or actual waists. To be clear: puffer vests, on the other hand, still suck. Shown left to right: Jil Sander +J for Uniqlo. Polo Ralph Lauren. Canali.
