Look, we understand that "How can I channel John Candy?" probably isn't what you're thinking when you open the closet each morning. But as we march straight into holiday season, you absolutely should be taking sartorial cues from at least once Candy personage: Del Griffith in Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Why? The guy flat-out knows how to bundle. 

Forget that Del can't tell the difference between mindless blather and a funny anecdote. Forget that he washes his woolly mammoth undies in the bathroom sink. What matters is that no matter where and how he and Neal get diverted, he's prepared for the weather. 

Which is why we took the liberty of assembling some wares that fit Del's cozy spirit. Parks, gloves, caps, boots ... it's all here, albeit for a coin or two more than we imagine he spent. They're well worth it, though, and ready to handle your holiday commutes for the next decade. 

Our picks below. Growing the moustache is on you, though.
