From performance puffer jackets to shackets and wool overcoats, these are our favourite men’s coats for winter
Performance puffer coats
If ever there was a winter to double down on comfort and practicality when it comes to your outer layer, this is it. Enter the performance puffer, combining the cosiness of a duvet with clever design details and tech to keep you warm and dry. This hooded style features a dropped hem for extra coverage and a snorkel neck and drawstring hood to keep chilly breezes at bay. A coat with a conscience, it’s made with recycled polyester and filled with recycled Thermowarth padding for warmth without extra weight. The water-repellent Stormwear finish means rain rolls right off.
Shackets and overshirts
The shacket or overshirt sits somewhere between a casual shirt and a lightweight jacket. It’s a multi-purpose, multi-seasonal layer that, right now, can be thrown over a T-shirt and sweatshirt to boost warmth while working from home or worn between a jumper and a coat for layering up against the winter chill when you’re out for a walk. This ultra-soft corduroy khaki overshirt is a relaxed extra layer – throw it over a roll neck and team with jeans for a laid-back look. The borg lining will keep you cosy indoors or out.
Wool coats and jackets
While formal dressing may have fallen by the wayside this year in favour of a more casual aesthetic, wool coats are more versatile than you think. Worn over knitwear, sweatshirts and hoodies with jeans or even joggers, they will elevate your winter lockdown loungewear look in an instant, ready for daily walks and essential trips to the supermarket. Cut in a classic regular fit with soft shoulders and patch pockets, plus handy internal pockets, this wool-blend utility jacket is the perfect outdoor layer for our more casual times.
