Men’s Coat Selection Tips ; Winter/Fall

Sort Out

A parade of winter coats is always at the edge of invitation whenever the Fall steps in to make through for Winters. Similarly in  this Fall/Winter 2013-2014, various styling presented in the notable collections of the season such as gorgeous pieces by Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Dior, Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Ermenigildo Zegna, Salvatore Ferragamo and Versac. Designed to not only   keep men warm but also heighten their sense of style in the cold. Aviamost gets down to the details of all   things you need to know in choosing fashionable coats.

As the weather gets colder, there is nothing more important than securing a winter coat. And while men are noticeably more inclined to choose functionality so this season will prove to be different. With the array of   fashionable winter clothing available and inspired by runway collections, men are now encouraged to mix fashion with function. Winter coats are investment buys. New trends may come and go, it’s true, but a good one will come a long way in style and function especially if you know how to select the best one.

The essentials

Coat experts say that a man need three types of coats: parka, trench coat (everyday coat) and a formal coat. The classic parka comes in many guises these days. It comes with a hood and most of the times with fur on the neckline.

The everyday coat is the popular and highly romanticized trench coat. It has remained functional and almost unchanged for over 100 years. Its origins can be traced to the Tielocken coat Thomas Burberry designed for British officers in the Boer War. It again saw action in World War II, with Russia and the United States following suit by issuing the coat to its men in uniform. However, it was largely eclipsed by more specialized (typically shorter) jackets tailored to the needs of different units and the nature of the war’s battles. Today the trench coat still serves in the different military forces as light weather protection for dress uniforms.

When it comes to the formal coat, dressing up would mean a simple single-breasted coat in dark wool (cashmere if you can) will always make the grade. Cover up with a scarf on colder days. Make sure the coat fits over your suit (have a jacket on when you try it), but don’t get it too big, lest it look borrowed. And invest in one with a fly front (where the buttons are hidden, above), which suggests higher quality and keeps the wind out.

Acrobatic Winter

While opting for fashionable coats, you need to consider the trend, color and style. Style should not always go with trends for the season. Depending on your personal taste and preference, trends may not be a big part in choosing your winter coat, as long as the coat performs its function well. But color is definitely of importance, which has to look good on you and go well with your personality. Dark colors can make you look thinner, but when picking light colors, ask yourself can you keep it clean? On the other hand, a huge parka may keep you toasty, but might be a bit inappropriate for the office or a night out on the town. Dressier men’s winter coats are better for business or elegant evenings.

Comfort

Always remember that men’s winter coats should be comfortable. The material is most important of course. The best fabrics are wool and cashmere; these will keep you warm and comfortable over other fabric choices, although they come with pricey tags. If you are looking for coats with other fabrics, choose ones that have underlying layer made of goose down, the extra layer will keep you warm. Leather men’s winter coats look great but don’t breathe very well, and are sometimes difficult to ‘seal’ if they have buttons, so keep that in mind. When trying on men’s winter coats, move around and check for binding as you have to perform in it. Add one size over your normal suit jacket size. This allows for freedom of movement without the thick linings binding at your neck, shoulders and back. Shoulder seams should be just over the edge of your physical shoulder – this will give you a great looking   profile when wearing the coat over your clothes underneath. Try bend down to tie your shoes, raise or stretch your arms while test fitting a winter coat.

Last but not least, think how much are you ready to pay: Winter coats can be affordable as well as expensive. Brand names are usually of higher quality and last longer. But then again, many times you are paying for the brand name instead of the material and workmanship. Remember, when all is said and done, you have to look good, feel good and stay warm. There are many styles and materials of men’s winter coats out there so stay open minded and consider your options.

Numerous vehicles on the road already incorporate some level of autonomy. Nissan’s current Safety Shield tech suite incorporates systems such as adaptive cruise control – which can slow down or speed up a vehicle automatically by using sensors to determine to the location of other vehicles around it – and a 360-degree camera-view function. Many luxury sedans, including the Infiniti Q50Mercedes-Benz S-Classand Lincoln MKZ, apply corrective steering if they sense they are wandering out of their lane.2013-nissan-leaf-01-628-1357743465 2013_LEAF_004-668LR

“The autonomous vehicle is coming. People have different predictions on whether it will be five years or 10 years. I think it is going to be sooner than we think. We will start with having autonomous cars driving on the highways but soon we will have autonomous trucks and transportation systems. Once we start in that direction of having autonomous vehicles be part of our highway complex, cities and people will change. People will demand it more and more,” said Dr Maarten Sierhuis.

Nissan opened its Silicon Valley research centre in February, and collaborates with teams at its corporate base as well as research universities in Japan to develop the autonomous driving initiative. The company is building a dedicated proving ground in Japan, which is expected to be finished in 2014.

The car’s driving range will be indirectly enhanced as well, because most Bay Area Nissan dealerships will soon install Quick Chargers, Mr. Gallagher said. The Quick Charger, capable of providing 50 to 60 miles of added range in about 25 minutes, will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week,at no cost to Leaf owners.

“I’m confident that in the next 60 days we’ll have a lot of Quick Chargers in the ground,” Mr. Gallagher said. “It’ll be great coverage across the state.”

This Nissan Leaf might still acquire more advancement until it can fully drive itself in real traffic, but this unreal mind can already perform something for the user to make them think that its  even better than autonomous driving as You can leave the car at the entrance of a parking lot and it will go in, find a spot, and park itself. And when you come back later, you just tap some buttons on your smartphone and the car will come find you. Click the link below to get your imagination shocked by its video:
