10 men's coats for under $1500
Baby, it's cold outside...
Searching for an ideal coat is never a simple task. Should the hemline sit just past the hips or cascade to mid-thigh? Is navy the new black or is black the new camel? And then there's the pricetag. As every seasoned gentleman will tell you: A good coat is a lifetime investment. But while price and quality usually rise in tandem, look hard enough and you'll find the perfect match without breaking the bank.
With winter approaching sooner than the next season of Game of Thrones (for those living north of the equator), or for those planning a cold (and hopefully white) Christmas, we've picked a host of options that are both stylish and affordable. Here, meet the 10 indispensible cover ups going for under $1500.
