With the colder weather knocking on the door, the inevitable winter wardrobe unpacking beckons. The key to staying snug yet stylish is by finessing your layering game. Forget your pilling, ill-sized winter coat from three years ago, stand out from the sea of black and hastily thrown on beanie-clad crowd with our men’s guide to styling coats and jackets.
Both a functional and fashionable piece, the overcoat is a must-have piece for the colder months. Traditionally crafted from heavyweight materials and in classic colourways from camel to navy and black, the overcoat is a wardrobe essential for the Monday to Friday suit-clad gents. Don’t put that exquisitely made custom tailored suit to waste with just any dowdy winter coat you’ve dug out from the back of your closet.
The Trench Coat:
A lightweight, layering staple for transitional seasons, the versatility of a trench coat has it ticking all the boxes when it comes to men’s outerwear. From after work drinks to weekend dates, the trench coat can instantly up-style any outfit with its classic silhouette and neutral colour scheme, from cream to light tan.
The Bomber Jacket:
Having seen a cult revival in recent times, the bomber jacket continues to reign supreme in the world of casual men’s outerwear. Turning street style on its head, from old-school satin pieces with Asian inspired embroidery to military styles with patches and sports luxe options, there are countless ways you can work the bomber jacket into your look. Available in a variety of styles, it’s your partner-in-crime for casual drinks with the boys and lazy Sunday breakfasts.
The Leather Jacket:
Nothing screams ’bad boy’ louder than a leather jacket. Historically a symbol of rebellion, the leather jacket is now a go-to style for both young and old. From moto styles to bombers, a leather piece is all you need to keep you toasty while looking at your sartorial best on off-duty days.
