Best Bets

A winter coat that's warm yet sleek. Plus, a U.K. favorite comes stateside, how to keep next year's resolution, a cardigan with wrap to spare...


The Best Bet
Puffy winter coats are warm, sure, but also cumbersome and unflattering. And for all its functionality, most fleece is still more rural practicality than urban cool. Arc’teryx’s new Fugitive Hoody, however, is city-sleek in design and surprisingly cozy, thanks to a new fiber technology that makes the fabric lightweight, warm, wind-resistant—and, most amazingly, completely water-repellent, no matter what combination of snow/sleet/rain is falling from the sky ($225 at Tent & Trails, 21 Park Place, nr. Broadway; 212-227-1760).
