My choice is a classic wool peacoat by J. G. Hook. It is a traditional peacoat with double breasted front part. It is fully lined with side welt pockets. The coat is warm enough for mild temperatures while not being too heavy; of course if you live in Florida it will insulate your body even in the coolest winter days.
