We’ve been lucky in Canada, because we haven’t had those truly horrid days of icy cold, where your breath is visible, your teeth chatter and you can feel it in your bones. But those days will be here soon enough, and it’s time you started to think about a winter jacket. There will be coats come November and December, sure, but it will be slim pickings. That parka you were eyeing now may go on sale, but if winters past have taught us anything, it’s that they really won’t. Not until, like January, at which point it will be far too late. So, we’ve found 31 beautiful and functional winter coats at various price points that are available right now. Check ’em all out, arranged by price from lowest to highest.
