The Find: a warm and cozy winter jacket that can also be a travel pillow (if you need it to be)

There was an abundance of fur on the fall/winter runways, but Philip Sparks has proven that it doesn’t always need to be a big honking animal to be showy. We love that Sparks has opted out of using traditional pelts like arctic wolf, fox and bunny for a more renewable fur source: the mountain sheep. This jacket’s oversized, curly collar reminds us of a lion, and the relaxed military inspiration is perfect for evenings when you may not want to be too formal. Can’t grow a beard or a moustache for Movember? Don’t worry, this collar will keep your baby face warm. It’s also comfortable enough to rest your head on, should the stranger’s shoulder on your train ride home for the holidays not be an option. $795.
