A Manswear guide to stylish winters coats

For those of us living in the UK, dressing to keep the frost at bay is about to become obligatory and topping the list for cold-weather clothing is a winter coat.

The time of year when outerwear really comes into its own, a coat isn’t just an extra layer of insulation and your last line of defence against the increasingly parky weather. 

But, as the first piece of clothing that others will notice it’s also an immediate statement about your new season style.


Luckily, the choices available to you are almost limitless and for those with a little more sartorial savvy now is the ideal time to have your pick of styles.

The overcoat is a classic favourite which can be worn with almost anything and always looks good when it comes to layering. Once super-formal, it can now also be paired with a casual hoody as well as a suit. 

While investing in neutral colours would be the most sensible purchase, if you’re feeling more daring then we suggest trying autumnal tones or opting for a heritage check.

Alternatively, plump for other classic menswear styles like the bomber or denim jacket which never seem to go out of style. For winter, most brands ensure you’re well equipped for fighting sub-zero temperatures with the addition of a fleecy lining or knitted sleeves.

This year also marks the return of an old favourite – the puffa jacket. A coat that you can reach for when the temperature dips without completely scrimping on style, it’s easily one of the most insulated jackets around and a great way to perfect your casual look. 

Lastly, if you’re not one to shout out with bold patterns or colours then expressing yourself through texture is equally as effective. Here, we suggest investing in shearling which, while expensive, guarantees to last you a life time.

If you’re a little strapped for cash though, head to the high street for affordable versions or swerve the cost with a coat that has just a shearling collar.
