With Superstorm Jonas ravishing the East Coast, we realized that you might need some quick tips on how to wrap up warm during the cooler months. It’s going to be a long winter, but with these men’s parka coats, looking good and staying warm is easy. The parka is a classic closet staple every man should own at least one of in his lifetime. It is timeless, looks great in casual and business settings, and can be worn with thermal layers or scarves for added warmth.
The words anorak and parka have been used interchangeably, but they are somewhat different garments. Strictly speaking, an anorak is a waterproof, hooded, pull-over jacket without a front opening, and sometimes drawstrings at the waist and cuffs, and a parka is a knee-length cold-weather coat, typically stuffed with down or very warm synthetic fiber, and with a fur-lined hood. Men’s parka coats are not too thick, too warm, or too bulky to be stifling, and with many different takes, finding a parka that suits your personal style is easy.
