It's easy to forgive anyone who mistakes Odin New York's Bower Jacket for an extremely thick sweater. The shawl collar and soft wash, coupled with the rounded pockets, make it seems – at first anyway – less tough than it actually is. But the big-buttoned cotton coat is thick and rigid enough to take one a stiff ocean breeze and its nautical styling means that it looks fantastic with a beanie, khakis, and boat shoes. Don't want to look like anyone's first mate? Throw it over a denim jacket for a downtown-goes-hiking look that's hard to beat. [$319; odinnewyork.com]
