Tuesday's Work-Appropriate Clothing Item: Black Winter Coat

Now that Halloween has passed and Thanksgiving is approaching, it's time to think about the dreaded winter coat. Unfortunately, most of the good ones (i.e. warm ones) incorporate wool and down/goose feathers. I have a few of these coats from my pre-vegan days. They are still in great condition, so I will continue wearing them. But if I was in the market for a new fancy coat to go over a dress or a chunky sweater and pant outfit, I would be drawn to Nature Vs. Future's asymmetrical winter coat (pictured in the available black). It hits right at that knee, and, as the name suggests, features asymmetrical buttons for a bit of flare. Made from a hemp and cotton blend -- and made in Brooklyn (NY)! Kaight, a cute NYC boutique featuring eco-friendly clothing and accessories, where I found the coat, says it is "extremely warm." $425; find it here.

Hey, just stumbled across your blog, and I'm hoping you can start pointing out some vegan clothes for professional men. All of the vegan dress shoes I've seen are clunky and ridiculous.

Thanks!

Hi Patrick! Thanks for the comment! Men's vegan dress shoes are on the agenda tomorrow, and thanks for reminding me to post about men's clothing . . . I will try to do at least one post for me a week.

Now THAT is a winter coat alright! Absolutely love it! :). I love and hate the Winter season because there are so many great styles about and sales starting such as the great universal one....but!...I always end up spending way too much when I see all these new trends and fashions hitting the market.

I really want that black coat now! lol :)

Men's dress shoes are so important for your image.Whether they are leather dress shoes,italian style dress shoes,crocodile dress shoes or snakeskin dress shoes they should be new looking and match your suit or walking suit.
Nothing looks worse than wearing a new fashion dress suit and a worn looking pair of shoes.
