We’ve finally entered the depths of winter here in New England, but that doesn’t mean life comes to a grinding halt and we get to hibernate under the covers for four months. In Boston, having a warm winter coat is not optional – it’s essential. Perhaps the frosty morning walks or bitter windy nights have passed through your bones and you’ve finally accepted that it’s time to get a real coat.
Lucky for you, Newbury Street has a wide range of parkas and jackets to bundle up in this winter. There are the ubiquitous options like North Face, Patagonia, and even the new Uniqlo outpost. But there are also boutiques-a-plenty that offer unique, fashion-forward coats that insulate and elevate your wardrobe. Whether you’re wrapping yourself in down or layering up in style, here’s 4 picks on Newbury where you might find some new winter warmth:
Eugene Coat: Long down hooded coat. Double zip fastening for extra protection. Asymmetrical zip front. Poly/nylon outer with special ‘memory’ fiber to recover original shape when crinkled. Water repellent. Insulation: 80% duck down 20% feather.
Finchette Bomber Jacket: Taking the principles of an Arctic-ready parka and translating them into a street-ready bomber. Insulated with traditional duck down, faux fur hood, concealed zip and popper fastening.
Highland Parka (Engineered Garments): A classic parka in buffalo check melton wool with a button front, drawstring hood, large welt pockets, and fishtail hem.
