It’s hard not to love a great cold weather coat. Unless you’re headed somewhere crowded. Then it’s a pain lugging it around. Next time it’s above freezing (or slightly below and your blood isn’t thin) and you’re headed somewhere without a coat check (so, just about everywhere), consider leaving it in the car. Here’s what you’ll need to do this right:
- A thicker sportcoat or blazer. Tweed, corduroy, moleskin, or flannel is best.
- A great pair of gloves.
- A scarf that’s wide enough to cover all of your neck, with ends long enough to get tucked under your blazer.
- An umbrella if precipitation is a possibility.
It sounds stupid simple, but most guys don’t think about just wrapping the scarf around their neck a few times, putting on their gloves, and leaving the coat off. And it honestly looks pretty, I don’t know, suave? Plus it’s functional.
Layering with a v-neck sweater will obviously be the warmest, and you can always lose the blazer if you get too warm once inside. Hit the midpoint of extra torso warmth with less risk of pit sweat by wearing a svest.
Do you do this? Or would you feel silly wearing gloves, a scarf, and no overcoat? Leave your take below.
