Did you feel that, Miami? The fleeting breeze in the air? It's almost time to whip out the reclusive winter jacket. While it may be the most underused item in your wardrobe, it doesn't make it any less essential to have, and with so many fresh fits and colors this fall, there's no reason why you shouldn't partake in the whole pastel, collarless coat trend this season, if only by switching it up to a lighter fabric and cutting off a couple of inches from the bottom seam.
After the jump, we've mapped out 12 stores carrying jackets that will seriously compliment your boot game this season, going north to save at the AllSaints outlet, and then due south to for investment pieces at the new Intermix on Lincoln. Have any jacket outfitters you swear by? Let us know in the comments section or shoot us a tip here.
