While you don't want to spend the season entombed in bubble, you do need gear that can withstand winter's cruel hazards. Get stylized toughness, from Dunderdon
Founded by a Swedish carpenter, Dunderdon started out making pants for its home country's laboring class, but has since expanded to a full line of office and casual gear -- all the while still incorporating hardcoreness like fire retardant and water repellant treatings, industrial-strength nylon, raw selvage, and "army satin" (traditionally rocked during West Point's annual Pimps and Hos Ball). Fresh fall goodness includes 20+ outerwear pieces, highlighted by jackets like the herringbone 100% wool buttonup "Elton", the goat leather "Jackson", and a waxed cotton canvas number dubbed "Axelman" that snaps up to cover your neck -- so you'll be warm and toasty on the cold day in hell Chinese Democracy's finally released. For layering, knits range from a lamb's wool & nylon tile-patterned "Redhook" sweater to a merino wool shell-collared cardigan; shirts include 100% brushed cotton flannels, checked buttondown one-pocketed camp shirts, and a black & grey pinstripe called "Ratner" that rocks a solid black bib outline, ideal for catching snooze-drool during Rush Hour 3
For your lower half, there's the two-tone cotton herringbone "Brickman", loose fitted & heavy-weighted "Sandler" denim, and four models of workman pants whose features harken back to Dunderdon's inception: removable knee pads, holster-esque "nail pockets", and zip-off legs -- use those with caution, as winter's cruelest hazard is seeing your pale, knobby chicken-calves.
