It’s so cold out here in Toronto as I write this. Each time I have to go outside I feel like putting five coats on, but since I don’t want to look like a marshmallow, I should probably focus one wearing one good one. During a Canadian winter, your winter coat truly becomes your “Look” , since that’s all people will be seeing of your outfit once you step out into that arctic air. At this time of year, it’s key to have a collection or at least a few stylish, wearable and extremely warm coats. That brings us to G_Lab.
“G-LAB set out to create the ultimate urban jacket for your contemporary needs. Driven by passion for style and function, G-LAB incorporates more than two decades of performance wear experience in cutting-edge designs.”
So we pulled some of our favorite pieces from their collection for men that showcase some of the best looks for winter that will still keep you warm without turning you into that dreaded marshmallow.
First we start with the Mid-length cut. This jacket is extremely versatile, and works perfectly if you are sporting a button down or a sweater, and looks great as that key layering piece. It’s kinda the perfect mix of dressy and casual. What’s great with this jacket, the “Field Ltd” from G-Lab, is that not only is it stylish with the two tone Dark/Navy, but it’s also is waterproof and the thermal lining is removable so it transitions perfectly right into spring.
Next we move onto the short cut or “Motto” jacket, which is the most casual of the coat family. The Motto has a classic feel that works perfectly with a great jean, and with this model it too offers the water resistance, as well as the warmth, and also a great collar that can be warn up or down to help keep you from freezing.
Last we have the full length coats. These in a lot of cases are the more dressy coats, and you can easily wear a suit underneath them, unlike with a motto jacket. The Helmsman below is on the more classy side, perfect for when you want to go out on the town, without having to pull out your giant and decidedly unstylish puffer coat. The Helmsman feature a triple layer for extra warmth, is also waterproof and is dressy well still being fully functional.
So now you no longer have to worry about what coat to wear with what, and can stay perfectly warm while looking as fashionable as ever. Thanks G-Lab!
