When it comes to dressing well for the winter weather, what’s on the outside matters of comfort, warmth and not the least of style. J.Crew felt rethinking the best parts of ease, comfort, style and utility were four factors to design an modern classic men’s outerwear coat. J. Crew created a few classic looks with some modern classic cuts and trims. This season they include everything from parkas, military field jacket and proper topcoats.
The Nordic Parka $450
Motivated by snowy sidewalks, slushy morning commutes and everything a “wintery mix” is, this parka is solely the warmest coat J.Crew has ever made. Connecting a water-resistant cotton exterior with a body that’s packed with warm down and also lined in Thinsulate®, our Nordic parka is set for the worst this winter’s going to throw at you. Just to guarantee you stay stylish and cozy, we also added handy details like Fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets and an elastic drawstring at the waist for a customization fit. Go behind the design.
With this times northern look, J. Crew’s durable parka’s come water-resistant cotton-nylon exterior means you’ll stay dry, even in a “wintery mix.
J.Crew’s Nordic Parkas are filled with down and lined with Thinsulate®; it’s the warmest coat they’ve ever made.
3. An adjustable drawstring at the waist makes the fit easy to customize.
Patch pockets, interior patch pockets, chest pocket with zipping closure.

Interior ribbed cuffs.
This was a very well studied and designed parka. The vast majority of buyers are very gratified with this. The Dark Cypress is more live Olive in person in which some people consider even better.) Both inner pockets are large enough to fit an iPhone 6Plus. The exterior chest pocket is also very plentiful. The Sherpa lined hood( in black) is a noted benefit as well. I could go on and on. This Parka was made with love!
Some reviewers have been searching for a stylish, warm and affordable parka for about two years now, and they eventually found one in the Nordic Parka. Some critics were hesitant to purchase online because I didn’t know how it would look and fit but it surpassed my expectations. It is rare to find an item that satisfies the buyer like these J.Crew down parkas; this parka does a great job ensure you’ll get the quality that you’ll pay for.
I cannot more highly recommend this item.
The Ludlow Topcoat $450
This is a remarkably warm jacket. You don’t need the Thinsulate version at all; the standard version is heavy and warm. It’d be nice if there were a button to secure the collar closed when turned up.
Fit wise, it’s even more complimentary than in the pictures above. Comes in at the waist, giving a great slim look. However, this is not sized like a standard top coat. If you wear it with a suit, you’ll definitely want to size up a bit. However, it fits very true to size as a coat on its own, with a slim waist. I’m a 38R or 39R usually, and this fits me great without a sweater, and snug but comfortable with. I’d want a 40R if worn over a suit.
I am 5″7 and 135 lbs. I purchased a 34/s, and the fit feels very tailored, a bit on the slim side which is preferable for me. Consider ordering a size up if you plan on wearing this with a suit, layering up might cause some tightness. The material is surprisingly soft and warm. There is five pockets total, three being on the inside and reasonably sized. The biggest pocket would be the one on the inside, thick enough to fit a plus-sized phone. This topcoat is a staple for cold winters, as it offers a sharp look, warmth, and utility.
Other customers really like the Top Coat, J Crew did a splendid job on this topcoat, One reviewer purchased the navy color, and it fits just right. Highly recommend this one, it’s not easy to find this kind of good quality with in this price range for men’s topcoat.
