Out­er­wear that will keep you warm through late winter and spring.

It’s al­most im­pos­si­ble to not start think­ing about spring mid­way through the Cana­dian winter, but we usu­ally for­get the mis­er­able tran­si­tion pe­riod: cold and snowy one day, slightly warmer and wet the next. That’s why a good jacket is still a ne­ces­sity, all the bet­ter if it has op­tions for in­creased com­fort and is stylish to boot.

WARMER The clean lines and trim sil­hou­ette of this char­coal vir­gin wool Boss coat ($795) mean it’s ver­sa­tile enough for all types of weather and a half-belt stitched into the back lend sit a shape and struc­ture that makes it fine for step­ping out on the town. If the wind is blow­ing hard, a throat lat ch is hid­den be­neath the full col­lar to stay cozy. But if you need a bit more heat, an Ermenegildo Zeg­namer lot and grey scarf ($475) will do the trick.

WARM Late winter and spring is a time for rain and plenty of it, but it will just run off this lightly padded Harry Rosen ny­lon coat ($1,298), which has a zip-away storm hood for added pro­tec­tion from the el­e­ments. It’s also eas­ily stored since you can sim­ply roll it up when trav­el­ling. Com­plete the look with a BOSS sport jacket ($395), blue cot­ton Br ax trousers ($235) and checked J. P. Til ford dress shirt ($185)

WARM­EST The words park a and lux­ury rarely go to­gether, but this grey wool B run el lo Cu ci nelli ver­sion ($6,895) of the tried-and-tested winter coat cer­tainly fits the bill. The parka is quilted with fined own and has a taupe ny­lon lin­ing, while the quilted hood has a brown wool en lin­ing and coy­ote fur trim. And if you need to warm up your hands after a quick text, the pock­ets are wool-lined. A beige sport coat ($4,295), cardi­gan ($2,350) and ca­sual trousers ($675) lock in the look.
