Maybe you looked in your closet as the massive nor’easter dumped feet of snow across New York City and parts of New England and you realized it lacked a suitable coat for leaving the house in such weather. Or maybe you’ve relied on the same coat season after season but, after spending so much time outside this winter, you realized you could use an upgrade. Whatever the reason, we’ve found these pre-spring weeks to be one of the best times to invest in a winter coat because anything you don’t wear a lot immediately can be broken out like new come the fall. But also: This time of year is when many winter coats you can still wear for months are on sale, as is the case right now at Macy’s. Through midnight tonight (February 2), the retailer is slashing prices on all sorts of clothes as part of its men’s designer flash sale, including this sleek, snow-ready Calvin Klein puffer that’s now 70 percent off. Available in nine colors and in sizes XS to 3XL (you have to click “see more” to see all the colors and sizes), the water-resistant coat has the most minimal of logos and a wind-blocking collar designed to protect your neck. More thoughtful details include ribbed cuffs to ensure a snug, sealed fit around your wrists, plus pockets inside and out for all your essentials. What’s more, Macy’s is offering free shipping on the coat if it’s purchased during the sale (that free shipping, we should add, is for any order over $25).
