While temperatures plummet and the skies darken, we’re here to elevate your winter wardrobe. We've spoken a lot about how you should be preparing your wardrobe for winter, most recently with Four of the Finest Fleeces and also the introduction of Forét Clothing. However, we haven't touched on the most important, and by and large the most satisfying purchase, the winter coat.
So, counteract the cold and brighten up the premature nightfall with our selection of the best winter coats below. We’ve picked something for everyone, ranging from overcoats to bomber jackets, each coat is a versatile and stylish piece that’s ready to help you usher winter in a bit more comfortably.
The All-Rounder: A Day’s March Black Shoulder Patch Jacket
Made of 850g wool, this A Day's March jacket is the heavy duty company you need to have your back as the weather gets worse. The details of the Shoulder Patch Jacket combine to form a classic casual-tailored piece: matte black buttons and the hem-less cuffs keep the boxy silhouette clean and precise. The boxy fit of this winter coat means you’ll have no problem piling on the layers, which is something you can't underestimate.
The Shearling Jacket: YMC Black Brainticket
We have already spoken glowingly about the Brainticket Jacket in our selection of Shearling Jackets To Be Seen In This Season, but we can’t let this one slip under the radar. This time we’re taking a look at the all-black version. Basically, jackets don't get much better. Thanks to the 100% sheepskin construction, you’ll be toasty all winter, too. Pair this with a pair of black jeans and black sneakers and you can’t lose.
The Overcoat: A Day’s March Dark Forest Car Wool Coat
There’s a reason that the classic woollen overcoat has been the winter coat of choice for the past few centuries. Timeless, easy-to-wear and incredibly warm. A Day’s March understand all things subtle and understated and the Car Wool Coat is no anomaly. The dark green hue adds interest without being eye-catching, from a distance it’s dark enough to be black but you can play with contrasts against the dark green to add personality to an outfit. Not to mention the flat front placket with hidden button closure that gives the coat a classic clean look.
The Real Winter-Warmer: Private White V.C. Green Jeep Coat
It’s not difficult to discern the military inspiration used by Private White for this piece. Their mission? To get you through the winter safe and sound - and sharp. The outer layer of the Jeep Coat is made of water-resistant brushed cotton, and the inside is lined with 100% wool flannel and reinforced by a layer of 100% wool wadding. If you’re cold in this blanket of a coat, then you’re past saving. Our favourite feature is the collar, as you can fasten it up to cover your neck with the real shearling.
The Bomber Jacket: Private White Lovat Moleskin Bomber
Private White proves its versatility with our next pick, the Moleskin Bomber Jacket. Although not as bulky, the Lovat Bomber is still winter-ready with its exclusive Ecoseam® water-resistant fabric finish and high-quality cuffs to keep the wind out. Real horn British buttons down the centre keep the class in balance with the practicality.
