STYLE OPINION

The best winter coats for men

13 February 2019


By default, your coat is the first thing a person notices about you, so you’re opening yourself up to a world of judgment just by entering into the seemingly carefree act of choosing which one to wear each day. But, fear not, because we’re here to break it down for you so that, no matter where you’re heading this winter, you’re guaranteed to be the best dressed on any street.


The tailored overcoat


The tailored overcoat has been the go-to for men of style all over the world for decades – and for good reason. Whether you’re investing in a piece to take your weekday suit up to the next level or looking for something to instantly sharpen up your weekend jeans and T-shirt, a tailored overcoat undoubtedly has a place in every man’s wardrobe. The key? Always make sure it fits you properly and if that doesn’t work off the peg, don’t be afraid to get it tailored to your body shape (this doesn’t always have to be expensive). If you’re keen to go a little bolder this season, why not try a checked version? And for optimum warmth, always look out for coats made with wool.


The down jacket


Down jackets in all forms have fast become a wardrobe staple for every street-style star in the world. The key is making sure that you’re wearing the right style, with the right outfit. From a gilet to a hooded iteration and everything in between, following a trend has genuinely never been easier. Whether you opt to layer it underneath an overcoat or choose to wear it on its own, it will always be achingly cool – so long as it’s worn in the right way. Wear with anything from your smartest two-piece to weekend loungewear, and we promise you’ll never look back.


The parka


Not only is the parka a serious lifesaver when plummeting temperatures hit hard and fast (as you’ll be accustomed to if you have the pleasure of living in Britain), but in the past few years it’s also become one of the most fashion-forward pieces of outerwear a man can own. You’d be wrong to assume that the parka should only be reserved for more casual occasions – all it takes is one look around the streets of Florence during the Pitti menswear shows or New York’s most stylish winter events to prove that it can be worn anywhere, with anything. It is, however, an undoubtedly bulky piece of outerwear, so avoid pairing with thick layers and keep the entire look streamlined with slim-fit pieces.
