Outerwear is reclaiming its role as cold weather's chicest statement piece with cozy capes, edgy leathers, and colorful furs dressing up the season's trendy yet plain silhouettes. "The novelty is in the coat this fall," said Susan Ahn of Eaves, a women's boutique in Wayne. "There are a lot of luxurious combinations, mixed media and textures . . . there is so much texture. " Well before the end of August, coats dominated front-of-store displays at apparel retailers from J.C. Penney to Saks.

W.L. Gore & Associates Inc. doesn't take it lightly when it guarantees that Gore-Tex outerwear will keep you dry. At its Elkton, Md., factory, Gore has 200 clothes washers to test the durability of fabric, a machine that immerses boots in water and flexes them 200,000 times, and a rain chamber where workers make sure Gore-Tex rain gear performs as expected. But outerwear - introduced in 1976 - is just the most visible product made by the Newark, Del., company founded in 1958 by a former DuPont chemist.

For further evidence that designers hope to entice shoppers with all things plush, lush and ornate, we need only look at this winter's coat styles. Speckled tweed prints, gilded brocades, leather patches with deconstructed edges, and soft cashmeres are just some of the details intended to make true fashionistas long for as many different coats as possible - to match as many outfits as possible. We can celebrate the chill with more sophistication in women's outerwear than has been seen since the 1940s.

Buddy Ryan has found himself in the eye of another storm. No, he hasn't taken another swing at Kevin Gilbride. The Phoenix Cardinals coach is going after bigger fish this time. He's taking on the NFL owners and their merchandising arm, NFL Properties. The dispute centers around the brand of outerwear that Ryan will wear on the sideline this season. Until last year, NFL coaches were able to cut their own deals with outerwear companies over what they wore on the sideline, much like college basketball coaches do with sneaker companies.

In 1947, he gave the American woman bras, nighties, peignoirs and panties, all in basic black. In 1952, he offered her panties that were crotchless. In 1981 his gift was edible panties and bras, in tutti frutti, pina colada, banana, cherry and passion fruit. Now, Mr. Frederick Mellinger of Hollywood is at it again. He knows exactly what his women want, and he's going to give it to them. Two-piece dresses with peplums and pleats. Chambray shirts and five-pocket denim jeans. Long, straight skirts that fall almost to the ankle.

THE NAVAL Yard a/k/a Urban Outfitter campus is where the young cosmopolitan designers, graphic artists and marketers come to work in the world of style. Here at the creative edge of the city, gals dress for show even if they are just meeting at the company cafeteria for lunch. You'll see an eclectic mix of patterns, heel heights, and outerwear. And the guys aren't slacking, either, going from American heritage style to vintage Levis and Allen Edmonds shoes. Who knew such style could be found on the banks of the Delaware River?

I'm in the market for a kelly-green trench. The bright color is a shout-out to this spring's punchy palette. But even better, the prevalence of this shamrock solid and its rainbow-hued crew - think watermelon, fuchsia, purple, and sunshine yellow - is final proof that pigment-heavy primaries and pastels are the new neutrals. Oh, the joy! This spring's lightweight outerwear is the permission we need to pair bold colors. Hello, red coatdress and ruffled, coral coat.

Three years ago, Red Lion Manufacturing owners Joan and Jack Miller were set to retire when businessman and avid golfer Gary Tolton came along with a profitable idea that also rekindled the Millers' workplace joie de vivre: a foul-weather suit that doesn't cramp a golfer's style or swing. Now, the Millers put in 10-to-12-hour days making and distributing Tolton's Zero Restriction golf suit, a jacket-and-pants combination that has brought high-tech outerwear to the links. In a sport known for high-tech innovations, specialized clothing hasn't had a high priority.

At the start of the year, I brought you the story of two Main Line friends who, while holding down other jobs to pay the bills, had embarked on a bit of a dream: to produce a men's trench coat made in the United States. Since then, Jacob Hurwitz and David Neill have raised $19,108 through a Kickstarter crowd-funding campaign and have sold more than 40 of their $725 American Trench coats, made in Newark, N.J., and marketed primarily at www.americantrench.com . Their handiwork, including socks made at a Reading knitting mill, has garnered kudos from apparel bloggers and online magazines.

It was an injured shoulder eight years ago that forced Anna Tumas to give up her beloved knitting, an art form she had learned growing up in Germany. So when she faced a very shrunken wool sweater after accidentally washing it in hot water, the lightbulb went on. For the last several years, this Cinnaminson woman has taken the loveliest old wool and cashmere sweaters she can find and recrafted them into baby sweaters. Shelves in her home workroom bulge with a rhapsody of pastels, brights, and occasional print sweaters seized like pirate's booty at thrift shops and yard sales.
