The 10 Best Topcoats Under $500

Ten smartly tailored, GQ-approved topcoats that any guy can wear to the office, a night out, and even the gym — all without breaking the bank
Michael Kors
Black leather details on the underside collar, a front placket, and elbow patches give this standard gray flannel topcoat a slick edge.
Ben Sherman
A traditional chesterfield silhouette like this Ben Sherman offers suave Savile Row style at a Main Street price.

Armani Exchange
We have a need, a need for tweed this season, and a slick covered-placket, ticket-pocket-sporting number like this one in the signature toothy fabric works just fine.
Kenneth Cole Collection
From Cole's lineup of higher-end basics, the rich navy color will stand out in a sea of blackn, and subtle collar ribbing sits comfortably on the neck.
Banana Republic
A single-breasted silhouette is more common and versatile, but there are plenty of DB options out there, like this vintage-inspired army green coat from Banana Republic.
Okay, so it's just over the $500 threshold, but the cashmere- and wool-blend fabric, plus the meanest fit outside of an uber-luxe Parisian house, make this well worth the added investment.
United Colors of Benetton
An exploded windowpane pattern puts this charcoal and black topcoat somewhere between downtown and dandy.
Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen
Basic in the best way possible, the high armholes and fitted torso of this topcoat belie its sub-$300 price point.
Tallia Orange
Tallia Orange also goes the Chesterfield route, giving us classic gents' style for just over two Benjamins.
J.Crew used Abraham Moon English wool to craft their herringbone topcoat, made to fit snugly over their signature Ludlow jacket.
