Splurge

An Ren
The red-and-yellow-lacquered walls of this petite boutique are lined with one-of-a-kind creations by New York designer An Ren, who focuses solely on women's coats and constructs her homespun yet polished pieces in a workshop in Shanghai. Although the stock changes as often as every few days, a distinctive, whimsical aesthetic predominates. You'll notice the designer's penchant for ruffles, large buttons and prominent collars in such items as an asymmetrically hemmed wool coat ($495) with structured shoulders and swirled-wool accent panels, and a double-breasted number ($425) with bell sleeves. Another signature finish seen on a nubby wool coat ($395) with contrast silk lining is what Ren refers to as her "car wash" hem, characterized by large rectangular panels that mimic pleats. In addition to heavier overcoats, there are also a number of unique lighter-weight jackets designed for layering, including a plaid style ($425) with removable ribbed-cotton lower sleeves. If you don't see something you like, you can order a custom coat to your specifications, which will arrive within three weeks. 315 E 9th St between First and Second Aves (212-388-9486)

Barbour
This fifth-generation, family-owned British brand has been making weatherproof outerwear since 1894. While you'll find a small collection of casual clothing for both sexes at Barbour's pair of NYC stores, the focus at both locations is clearly on coats. The company is best known for its classic sensibility, evident in men's slim, waxed-cotton down jackets ($499) featuring signature corduroy collars, and quilted motorcycle styles ($299). But head to the wood-paneled Soho flagship and you'll discover that it's moved beyond traditional English country style with more fashion-forward options. Only the downtown location carries the Heritage collection, based on pieces from the Barbour archive, and the Gold Label, a collaboration with Brit designer Alice Temperley. Smart picks from the former include ladies' belted down parkas ($499) with faux-fur-trimmed hoods, while hourglass-fitted quilted equestrian-style leather jackets ($1,199) from the latter are surprisingly sexy. 123 Wooster St at Prince St (212-941-7524) * 1047 Madison Ave at 80th St (212-570-2600) * barbour.com

Dunderdon
Form follows function in professional carpenter Per-Ivan Hagberg's line of durable canvas work wear. Though Hagberg started with a pair of sturdy work pants when he founded the brand in 1997, the collection's standout pieces are the neutral-hued outerwear for men and women. Straightforward, modern jackets fill the Swedish import's bright, minimalist U.S. flagship, including men's thick canvas versions ($229) lined with sheepskin-like pile and updated double-breasted mackintosh trenches ($289) featuring contrast wool lining. The women's jackets offer similarly understated styles, such as hip-length waterproof canvas toppers ($249) with removable hoods and military-style duffle coats ($349) with traditional horn toggle closures. 25 Howard St at Crosby St (212-226-4040, dunderdon.com)

Mackage
Leave it to our neighbors up north to develop elegant, figure-flattering outerwear that will keep you warm without making you look like you left the house in a sleeping bag. Canadians Elisa Dahan and Eran Elfassy have been designing coats together since they were 12 years old, and although the Montreal brand they founded in 2000 has since expanded to include women's clothing, jackets remain at their label's core. At Mackage's neutral-hued flagship in Soho, you'll find the full range of men's and women's toppers, made with high-quality fabrics such as cashmere, curly lamb fur and leather. Ladies will love that they have a defined waist with such styles as a tailored boucl double-breasted coat ($730) featuring a corset-style leather belt and a slim, hip-length lambskin puffy coat ($1,350) accented with a raccoon-fur-trimmed hood. Cropped curly lamb-fur jackets ($1,190) with bracelet-length sleeves are perfect for fashionistas looking to make a statement, while men's double-breasted wool peacoats ($730) and bomber-style puffer jackets ($750) with leather elbow patches ensure guys aren't left out in the cold. 123 Mercer St at Prince St (212-925-1455, mackage.com)

Moncler
The European skiwear of choice on the ritzier slopes of the Alps, Moncler is known for its luxe puffer jackets featuring extra-warm goose down and water-resistant finishes. At the French snow-wear brand's 2,400-square-foot boutique, top-of-the-line men's models such as full-length, fur-trimmed parkas ($1,675) set the bar high. But comparatively reasonable styles, including guys' padded jackets ($975) featuring shiny nylon hood and shoulder details and lacquered nylon puffers ($1,150), are equally stylish and just as insulating. Women's offerings go beyond Moncler's signature glossy finish to include military-inspired stretch-nylon jackets ($1,245). 90 Prince St at Mercer St (646-350-3620, moncler.com)

Save

Burlington Coat Factory
Though this discount retailer—founded as a wholesaler for women's outerwear in 1924—has broadened its scope to clothing, accessories and housewares, Burlington Coat Factory's main draw remains its constantly revolving stock of thousands of marked-down jackets in every shape and style. Prepare to encounter tightly packed racks of current and past-season overstock from department-store brands such as Miss Sixty, XOXO and Rocawear. Shipments arrive weekly at all five NYC locations, and on a recent visit, we spotted ladies' London Fog knee-length military-style peacoats ($90) and Ecko Red waist-length bubble jackets ($40) with fur-trimmed hoods. Sean John multipocket parkas ($119) with detachable faux-fur collars and Liquid abstract-print ski jackets ($99) caught our eye in the men's department. Locations throughout the city; visit burlingtoncoatfactory.com

Dave's New York
A staple since 1963 for New Yorkers looking for hard-working gear , this family-owned store stocks trusted heritage brands such as Red Wing and Schott that will last for generations—but are priced so that you could pick up a new coat every season. Utility is the name of the game here, as evidenced by pieces such as weighty men's Alpha Industries oversize parkas ($125), whose deep hoods and ultra-warm linings are designed for airmen flying open crafts in cold climates. Classic Carhartt work coats ($109) styled with wind flaps and double zippers reinforced with arctic-weight polyester insulation are also guaranteed to get you to the subway without frostbite. On the women's side, bundle up to Woolrich knee-length duck-down parkas ($189) with detachable fur-edged hoods and Alpha Industries wind-resistant nylon parkas ($125) trimmed with faux-coyote-fur hoods. 581 Sixth Ave between 16th and 17th Sts (212-989-6444, davesnewyork.com)

Joe Fresh
Every item in this Canadian chain's first permanent NYC store is priced under $149. Remarkably, that price cap includes outerwear, and although the timelessly stylish coats are among the most expensive items in the shop, they're also some of the best deals you'll find there. Stand out in a sea of black wool with women's neon-bright neoprene coats ($99) or quilted puffers ($49) that fold up into their own storage pouches and come in a rainbow of cheerful colors. Men can shield themselves from sleet and snow in waist-length, high-necked jackets ($69) and classically cut wool peacoats ($99). 110 Fifth Ave between 16th and 17th Sts (212-366-0960, joefresh.com)

Uniqlo
This Japanese clothing chain might want to keep you warm all winter long with its affordable cashmere sweaters ($80--$100), but that doesn't mean you should overlook its assortment of more substantial outer layers. Since 2008, German designer Jil Sander has collaborated with Uniqlo to create her popular +J collection of minimalist basics, and smart-looking outerwear for both sexes predominates in the final installment. It's your last chance to grab women's classic wool four-button peacoats ($199) and tailored down hooded jackets ($129) that show off feminine curves. You won't want to miss men's down coats ($200) with oversize pockets, quilted funnel-collared parkas ($200) and reversible down vests ($100) that are perfect for layering. Of course, that's assuming you make it past the racks of what may be the season's best coat deal—an ultralight, very warm packable down jacket ($80) that's stored in a travel-friendly pouch and comes in a rainbow of colors for both birds and blokes. 666 Fifth Ave between 52nd and 53rd Sts (877-486-4756) * 546 Broadway between Prince and Spring Sts (917-237-8800) * 31 W 34th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves (877-486-4756) * uniqlo.com

Zara
This Spanish chain is known for its affordable, trend-driven men's and women's clothing, and that includes numerous fashion-forward coats in the winter. We're loving ladies' '60s-style wool capes ($129) featuring windproof, chin-high wrap collars, and short belted puffers ($100) that won't swallow your figure in fabric. For gentlemen, double-breasted wool duffel coats ($169) and vibrant hooded jackets ($129) with sporty exterior pockets will keep you looking sharp in a blizzard.
