As temperatures begin to cool, men migrate toward their closets, attics or storage areas in search of fall jackets that, for some, leave a lot to be desired.
Between that old, leather jacket that hasn't been fashionable since the 1990s or a heavy, hefty and grotesque grandpa coat that should have been retired graciously when it was gifted, men struggle to find a balance between relics and remarkable as far as outerwear goes.
Few men put much emphasis on a coat or jacket, simply suggesting that this article of clothing is nothing to write home about: it is simply a way to stay warm when the weather decides to go south.
What else is headed south other than the weather? Your style.
There's little doubt that a sensational suit, bombastic blazer or superb shoes certainly make for the eclectic, amazing ensemble but the jacket is a first impression, the outer skin of your outfit and no one wants to see a moth-ridden mess of a coat that makes what is underneath it all but meaningless or moot.

Few brands sport the kind of distinctness and design aptitude as K-Way. The jackets range from windbreakers to waterproof and features coats for every season. What makes K-Way both functional and fun is the way the coats are cut, not bulky but rather slim-fitting but not tight or cumbersome.
Winter is the one season that stands out as being the toughest not only from a temperature standpoint but finding a coat that welcomes warmth and wondrous style. K-Way's Jacques Thermo Plus is both reversible and remarkable as a "bubble-style" coat that is incredible warm thanks to it being quilted and filled with goose-down. The benefit of the goose down filling is that it allows the coat to be not only padded and protected as far as keeping in heat but also less bulky: Think George Costanza's Gortex coat from Seinfeld only without the "puffball" attributes.
Another benefit of K-Way is its ability to incorporate fashion and style but makes the coats both practical and appealing to a demographic that perhaps has a budget in terms of what they can spend realistically on a jacket. The Thermo Plus is about $250 but its functionality is well worth the cost. But K-Way also features coats and jackets that are well below the $250 price range without sacrificing any of the characteristics that makes the brand some worthwhile.
A downfall or detriment of jackets or coats that mirror the sights of Fashion Week is that they're incredibly glamorous but a little too over the top for the demographic that won't walk down a runway in their lifetime. K-Way is one of the brands that manages to skip the fluff literally and figuratively and gets down to one simple outwear omen: make it simple, superb and so incredibly versatile that your grandfathers hand me down heirloom gets put on a hanger forever.
