The winter months bring with it a healthy dose of snow, ice, and blistering winds. If that sounds like a good time, it probably means you have a great coat collection. However, if you are like most of us and you think that sounds like misery, it means you have some growth needed in your coat closet. Lucky for you, we have collected some of the best winter coats for the 2023/2024 season.

Of course, there are dozens of coats and brands that you can choose from. From duffle coats and leather bombers to overcoats and peacoats, you can always find something new and different to upgrade your collection.

What’s in style in 2023?

You can always go with the good old trusty classics like the brown leather moto jacket or the cashmere overcoat. However, the winter of 2023/2024 is the perfect time for you to upgrade your coat closet with something new and different.

This season, the first thing you should look for is a new and different color. Rich olives, greens, and other colors that contrast with the usual browns and navies are the best to look for, along with eye-catching patterns that will elevate your collection immediately. Here are the best options for your consideration.

&SONS Green Boardwalk Peacoat

The Boardwalk Peacoat is one of the iconic cornerstone items that propelled &SONS to the powerhouse in rugged menswear that it is. Of course, most peacoats carry with them the classic blue from its naval origins. But the newest addition to &SONS’ collection is a variation on the classic in army green. It still features the wide collar perfect for shielding you from the elements and the snap tab to close the front around your neck. But the new color will help you stand out like never before.

It is meant to be the shell you wear when you face the best and the worst that life has to offer. The black coffee color is about as dark brown as you can get before you end up wearing black. It may not be designed for fashion, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t capable of it.

Style is a bit of a Rorschach test. It can tell people around us who we are and what we think of ourselves. It can tell people more than we think. Some of us are mavericks, shirking the rules and subverting expectations at every turn, simply because we don't like to be put in boxes. Other groups of us like rules and we want the comfort that order and uniformity bring us. Then, even more of us are somewhere in the middle when it comes to men's style and crave order and uniformity to allow us to find our boundaries, only to shirk them later when we want to feel free. Men's fashion offers us all of the above. While some rules are made to be broken, others are tried-and-true staples to live on.

Rules vs. guidelines and how to break them
Never mix black and brown. Don't wear black dress shoes with a navy suit. Ditch the graphic tee. These are considered "rules of menswear," but they are more of guidelines. They help you look great while you learn what your style is or how to put together an outfit. Once you figure out how to do that, these rules tend to get in the way of evolving your style to be truly unique. The first thing you need to know if you're looking to revamp or upgrade your wardrobe is that guidelines can be adjusted, deviated from, or flat-out ignored. Rules, however, should be followed whenever possible. Don't worry; we took the time to collect the rules you should always follow in men's style.

How to wear Timberland boots: Styles and lacing tips for men

Is there any pair of boots more iconic or more associated with fall and winter style than Timberland boots? It's a question that's up for debate, sure, but for hard-working casual style across a variety of seasons, Timberland boots, or "Timbs," are always a safe, stylish, and classic-yet-modern bet. And yet, there's also a debate over how to wear Timberland boots. When we think of the brand, we think of the iconic "yellow boots," the lace-up work boots designed to be worn in so many ways beyond just a day's hard work.

Timberland's signature style is a stalwart in popular culture, kind of like an even cooler version of another instantly recognizable pair of fall and winter boots (L.L. Bean's Bean Boots, anyone?). Both belong in a well-rounded rotation, but Timberland has an effortlessly cool design that they've not changed all that much, other than to amp up the comfort, the sustainability, and the occasional collaboration revamp with new colors and branded detailing. For now, we'll dive into how to wear Timbs, from lacing to styling tips and seasonal trends. There are endless options, so pay close attention: You'll pick up more than a few go-to tricks this season.
