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.

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.
