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.

Burberry

Burberry's outerwear is iconic and classic, but every season they manage to churn out something that's a little more unexpected, like this season's selection of metallic, vinyl, and contrast animal print trenches. [Photo]
Uniqlo's range of outerwear includes wool trenches and duffel coats, stretch down jackets, and of course, Heattech tee shirts, tank tops, and turtlenecks to layer underneath. Bonus: most of the outerwear is priced at $100.

Barbour

Barbour's outerwear includes everything from winter-proof waxed jackets to heritage waistcoats. With several labels under its belt (Barbour International, Barbour Lifestyle, Barbour Heritage, and Barbour Sporting), we doubt you'll have trouble finding something with the right fit. [Photo]
For coats that don't mess around, head to REI's superstore on Lafayette Street. Down parkas, ski jackets, fleeces, and wind shells are all on the menu at reasonable prices—the store's website currently has a solid selection that's under $200.

Moncler

Moncler's coveted puffer coats come with high price tags for a reason: they're freakishly warm and tailored, so you don't run the risk of looking like a giant marshmallow. Styles include solid, neutral colors with or without fur hoods, and some wilder options, like this fur-trimmed vest and mix-and-match animal print. Expect to throw down at least $1,000. [Photo]

Mackage

The pros behind Mackage have a knack for delivering sexy, tailored jackets, leathers, and peacoats for both men and women. Prices start at $390 for ultra lightweight down, and cap off at just over $1,000 for pricier styles. [Photo]

Helmut Lang

Copy Link
Nobody does a sleek city coat quite like Helmut Lang, and this season's options range from hooded puffers to leather/fur/shearling hybrids. Bring the big bucks, though: knit coats start around $600, and more intricate styles run over $2,000. [Photo]
Soho newcomer Aether is the latest in fashionable performance sportswear stores to open in New York City this year. The brand specializes in neutral-colored, city-appropriate coats and jackets that'll keep you warm all season, whether you're stuck in a sidewalk wind tunnel or on a trip upstate.

Lindsey Thornburg

Cloaks are the name of the game at designer Lindsey Thornburg's standalone store on the Lower East Side. Stop by this season for a special collaboration with another outerwear expert, Pendleton.

Hatchet Outdoor Supply Co.

This Brooklyn Heights outdoor shop carries coats and outerwear for men who plan to hit the trails, or just want to look the part. Brands on the racks include North Face, Patagonia, Canada Goose, Manatash, and more. [Photo: William Chan]
