1. Steven Alan La Brea

Copy Link
123 S La Brea Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Given the amount of heavy leather, wool and tweed at Alan's newest local outpost, you could almost forget that you're shopping in LA. This season, his jackets and coats have a nice, sort of English countryside feel.

2. AllSaints Spitalfields

Copy Link
100 N Robertson Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90048
(310) 432-8484
Visit Website
The linchpin of this import is its leather gear, including jackets in a variety of cuts. They're also stocked with coats both long and short as well as styles trimmed with luxe-looking shearling.

Copy Link
10250 Santa Monica Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90067

4. Rag & Bone

Copy Link
8533 Melrose Avenue
West Hollywood, CA 90069
The Rag & Bone guys are British, which means they've known some truly cold winters. Their new LA flagship is filled with proper fall/winter gear for men and women, including capes, leather-blocked coats, striped smoking jackets and herringbone blazers handwoven in Scotland.
