A good coat can last you a lifetime and as we enter into the depths of winter your coat will become your best friend. A winter jacket will be the most important thing in your wardrobe so with that in mind it’s imperative you choose the right one.

So now you’ve committed to buying a coat the next question is which one and how should you wear it? Take a look at some of our favourite styles this season.

Parka

The parka has been a menswear wardrobe essential for as long as we can remember. It began life as an American military jacket in the 1950’s and has since been adopted by a number of subcultures from the Mods to the Britpop era. Some favourites this season come from Pretty Green, Alpha Industries and Canada Goose.

HOW TO WEAR IT

Team it with a pair of boots, chunky knitwear and some staple jeans for the ultimate winter look. Alternatively, channel your inner mod and wear over a suit with a pair of suede desert boots.

Wax

The wax jacket has seen a resurgence in recent years, no longer viewed as the farmers jacket of old they assume a slimmer cut these days for a much more tailored look. For a really classic option take a look at the Dapper Stag Wax or for something slightly different try the Barbour Wool/Wax Bedale.

HOW TO WEAR IT

Go countryside chic and dress it up with a tailored shirt and a nice pair of brogues or simply wear it with trainers and jeans for a more laid back approach.

Padded/Quilted

Quilted jackets often bring back bad memories for many people. But fear not, times have changed! Think less sleeping bag, more apres-ski and that’s where you’ll find our offering this winter.

HOW TO WEAR IT

Pair it with a nice oxford shirt and smart jeans, be wary of layering too much under a down filled option as these are super warm anyway. Alternatively use a lighter quilt as a mid layer and wear underneath a waterproof shell on those rainy winter days.

HOW TO WEAR IT

Colour wise it’s always better to stick to something darker, a longer wool jacket looks just as good over a suit as it does over a roll neck jumper. Choose a fitted style and pair with a nice tartan scarf.
