Special thanks to JACK1T for partnering with me for this post.

It may have been a mild November for most of the month, but one thing is for sure, it will get colder. So now is the ideal time to find that perfect winter coat because you never know when the frigid winter chill will creep it's way in. When it comes to shopping for outerwear, let's be honest the options available to the masses aren't always that appealing or unique. For the most part, you have to juggle sacrificing style for warmth and warmth for style, but finding a coat that can offer both is a dream come true. Here are a few things I look for when shopping for a winter coat.

Local Philadelphia artist King Saladeen teamed up with Diadora to create a very special collection featuring the Diadora Maverick "JP Tennis Shoe" ($150) and Diadora N9002 "Museum Runner ($175) - two of the brands most iconic silhouettes. Both styles will be available in Men's sizes 8-12.5, which leaves me a little jealous since I wear a Men's size 6.
