A topcoat is one of those superhero items in your closet. The right one transforms any mundane outfit into something sharp and stylish. Not that you’re wearing mundane outfits, but you catch our drift. And it’s equal opportunity improvement. You could be dashing off to the deli for more orange juice on a Saturday morning in sweats and the t-shirt you slept in, or headed to the office in a suit.

The good news is there’s so many great places to buy a great coat these days, some more unexpected than others. Whether you stick to neutrals, or break out of the pack with somethin’ a little more interesting is up to you.

Below, our top picks for men’s topcoats

1. Frank & Oak, $269

SG Says: Who says a topcoat has to be tan, grey, navy or black? Mix it up with this chocolate-hued style from Canadian retailer Frank & Oak

2. Land’s End, $399

SG Says: Don’t shy away from patterns, either! In a dark color like grey, they’ll feel as easy to wear as a solid neutral

3. Abercrombie & Fitch, $180

SG Says: Italian wool from the moose logo-loving retailer? Believe it. A&F may still make the hoodies you know and loved growing up, but they’ve grown up, too. Stop by the next time you’re in the mall and prepare to be surprised (except for the smell. It still smells like that).

4. Club Monaco, $359

SG Says: This picture doesn’t do it justice, but the textured wool boucle of this jacket feels so good to touch, and lends a polished finish that feels at once cozy and sharp.

5. Michael Kors, $297

SG Says: We’re not always into a multi-functional layer, but we like the water resistant ribbed collar that tops off this topper.

6. ASOS, $83

7. J.Crew, $450

SG Says: This Italian wool cashmere topcoat from J.Crew is the kind of style that’s always the right answer when you open up your coat closet, whether you’re in joggers and a t-shirt or a full suit.

8. Brooks Brothers, $1,698

SG Says: Okay, yes, this is expensive, but look at that herringbone! And tan! So unexpected. The whole thing is subtle, yet a total standout.

9. Tommy Hilfiger, $320

SG Says: Another layered topcoat, this one’s tailored in a warm wool blend with a partial placket for that layered look without the bulk.

10. Ted Baker, $665
