All though the temperature may drop, there is still time to stroll along Central Park West, taste the latest special at The Meatball Shop, and catch an evening performance at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. All a man needs is one necessity to stay warm and stylish for the winter months: a camel coat.

With its Asian origin, camel coats received their name from using camel hair as fabric. As time progressed, the textile used for its iconic design became a combination of wool with additional fibers that mimic camel hair’s texture and golden color.
