Vegan Outerwear For Men

I assume that men like to wear coats during the winter too. Here are a couple vegan outerwear options for men; they are both from Banana Republic. The first is casual, while the second is suitable for the office.

1) "All-weather hooded zip-front jacket" (pictured right). The jacket comes in black and fog colors. It's 100% polyester. I'm not sure how warm it is, but of the vegan all-weather jackets I have encountered, it looks like one of the warmest. I especially like the fleece lining at the collar. I'm also intrigued by the use of a model wearing sunglasses to sell the jacket which is why I chose to picture the jacket in the black rather than the fog (the model wearing the fog jacket is not wearing sunglasses). The jacket is $198.

2) "Cotton moleskin topcoat" (pictured left). The topcoat only comes in black. Banana Republic's website says this topcoat is 100% cotton, but I would check with a salesperson first to determine if the lining incorporates wool because one of the other online images associated with the topcoat displays a label that reads "Italian wool cashmere." It's confusing. Anyhow, the topcoat is $275.

I think both coats are too expensive, but Banana Republic tends to put its clothing on sale, so if you like what you see, check back in a few weeks and it might be less expensive.

Finally, I would feel incomplete if I didn't point out that Banana Republic currently makes no outerwear for women that does not incorporate wool or down except for this 1/2 sleeved "coat" which does not come close to constituting true outerwear in my view. Please make some outerwear for me Banana Republic!
