Before you start thinking that thick Michelin Man-looking down jackets are your only options to looking fetch during the initial chill of the New Year, make the resolution to look better. Learn from the cool cats on the streets of New York, Milan, and Tokyo who know how to make their outer layer game look as sleek as their tailor-honed suiting. That means adopting innovative materials that don’t make you look like a disproportionate weightlifter but a style heavyweight. Giorgio Armani’s latest provides an outer layer filled with a natural material called cashmere flakes, which already sounds like your favourite kind of snowfall. The collection for men and women, which features overcoats, bomber jackets, and even a formal jacket (for women), specifically avoids the use of down feathers. The result with cashmere flakes still keeps the outerwear sleek and lightweight for those who don’t want to look and feel like they had one too many servings at the New Year buffet, as well as to keep its wearer feeling warm and snuggly like sitting infront of a fireplace.
