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.

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.
