GQ: How to Stay Warm This Winter Without Turning Yourself Into the Michelin Man

To that end, here are a few helpful reminders of how to stay warm without adding unnecessary bulk to your look in the process. Follow these six-steps and you won't have to rush home after work every night for fear of freezing to death. You can even make snow angels.
