The Top Ten Things To Buy Today!

    It's been snowing for days with no end in sight so today we're arming you with the best bad weather gear we can find, including but not limited to a swimsuit and a slingshot. Ready, steady, SHOP.

    Moncler's Gueran Coat is enormous, puffy, fur-lined, and WARM. The pretty ivory shade guarantees you'll blend in with your least until traffic reduces the snow to a slate-colored slush. Price not listed. [Moncler]

    This hand-knit Andes Cap is technically made for the dudes, but we think it would look so cute with that Moncler coat, pigtail braids, and an extra-hot cup of cocoa. On sale for $72.50. [Jack Spade]

    The Vero Moda Chunky Cable Knit Sweater looks impossibly warm with its cowl neck and generous length. Pair with winter weight tights and the mocs below. 38 pounds. [ASOS]

    J.Crew collaborated with Quoddy on this suede and shearling-lined moccasin. Each pair is made in Perry, Maine, and can be resoled any time you like at no cost, courtesy of Quoddy. Considering that and the price tag, you may never buy another moc again. $400 [J.Crew]

    A swimsuit by We Are Handsome? No, we're not crazy. You can't go naked when you finally, in a fit of weather-related hysteria, hop a JetBlue flight to the Caribbean. This one with its palm tree print is such a literal take on tropical fashion. $240. [Opening Ceremony]

    The Broadband Triclimate Jacket is North Face's most heavy-duty, weather-proof outer shell, and while walking to the Breslin isn't exactly like climbing Kilimanjaro, it's pretty darn close. $299. [The North Face]

    L.L. Bean's Two-Layer Union Suit will keep all the gents warm underneath their suits, sweats, and Barbour coats. The bright red one reminds us of a Snuggie except way, way more handsome. $49 [L.L. Bean]

    Toast's 8-Wale Corduroy Trousers will look great over that Union Suit. Wear them with a fairisle knit sweater, Elmer Fudd cap, and frosty pint of winter brew. On sale now for 88 pounds. [Toast]

    The Filson Double Mackinaw Hat continues our red theme today, but who can argue with that lumberjack plaid? You'll fit right in at the bar at Freeman's. $59. [Filson]

    The Old Time Sling Shot won't exactly keep you warm, but in times like this it's important to be resourceful. You never know when the electricity will go out at Trader Joe's and you have to, for example, hunt Central Park for dinner. $21 [Hickoree's]
