Winter-proof outerwear is something that can't be skimped on when living in New York City, since every side street and avenue turns into a full-blown wind tunnel once January rolls around. Several shops, like Moncler and Mackage, specialize in the category, while others, like Uniqlo, Helmut Lang, and Hatchet Outdoor Supply Co. carry a smattering worth browsing. After the jump, check out our map of the ten best places to find tailored wool jackets, cozy toggle coats, serious ski parkas, and more throughout the city.
