I believe the second style is a wool coat? Kind of like a peacoat, but not.

You have to remember, NY is the land of the stylish, daaahling. So if you're dressing for winter, you should dress well.

But to assume that nobody wears parka style jackets is kind of silly- people wear North Face clothes all the time in NY.

I would say get a good wool hat, a scarf, gloves, and a nice wool coat and you're all set. Enjoy NY!

At first I thought your question was about having to work outdoors, which is not a great deal of fun. But even indoors, it depends on what kind of job you have. If it's casual, you might get more wear out of a storm coat or jacket. Silk thermals work extremely well, as do silk socks. :)

Just add a hat, but not this:

Actually, a hat will help a lot. This kind of coat is usually made of wool -- quite warm -- and with layering (with the type of materials stache suggests) you should be fine for getting from home to work. This is assuming you will work in a heated office and do not spend a good deal of time outdoors. If that is the case, and you aren't worried about looking too informal, the parka (number 1, above) is the way to go.
