15 of the warmest winter coats for men


Everyone needs a long, waterproof puffer jacket. It’s an investment for life. You’ll never regret it, not least on cold commutes to work or frosty dog walks. Rains are always reliable for waterproofing and the Alta long puffer adds serious insulation for one of the warmest winter coats for men out there. Built with featherless chamber technology, as well as being warm, waterproof and windproof (the essential three Ws) it’s also extremely breathable, making for ultimate comfort. The fleece-lined pockets are spacious as is the internal chest pocket. The drawstring hood allows you to further keep the heat in and the elements out.


Asket’s melange wool coat is one of the warmest winter coats for men, specifically men who want something smart. Eschewing shiny technical fabrics for a naturally warm and comfortable 100% recycled wool Italian felted double twill, it’s a meeting point of classic tailoring and timeless design. Buttoned up to a clean cut away collar at the neck, with raglan sleeves and flap pockets at the front, it’s a stylish, water-resistant jacket for Autumn and Winter. Match it with a soft cashmere scarf and a brolly for when the heavens open.


The puffer coat from Closed is the result of a long-running close relationship with Italian textile designer Limonta, with this particular garment the exclusive launchpad for BioFabbrica's innovative Bio-Alloy™ technology. This technology is developed in collaboration with the biotech company Modern Meadow to create sustainability-minded performance materials. It has a shiny matt surface, is light as a feather (full vegan down lining) and has a detachable hood. Its thermal qualities make it one of the warmest winter coats for men out there with a fashion-forward approach to design.


The jersey wool coat from L’Estrange London is a solid capsule wardrobe piece and we wouldn’t expect anything less from the modular wardrobe brand. The coat channels a classic tailored look with a relaxed elegance. Features include corozo nut buttons, hidden welt pockets and pointed lapels. Inside there’s an attachment for the brand’s modular shell and vest styles, making for extra insulation and one of the warmest winter coats for men. Take your pick of the Lestrange London collection to wear it with. Solid, sustainable and future-minded basics.

Private White V.C.

A real statement piece from Private White V.C. A collaboration between the Manchester-based brand and men’s style expert and blogger Simon Crompton, the Permanent Style Donegal overcoat is a celebration of style and materials. It also happens to be one of the warmest winter coats for men out there. The limited edition coat comes in a regular fit, is made from exclusive Donegal herringbone cloth and features luxury touches from throat latches to cashmere pocket linings. A true one-off. Invest in the best.

Pini Parma

For an elegant option from Italy, consider the Pini Parma blue down coat with removable shearling collar. A stylish ally for the winter months, the removable shearling collar is a nice luxury touch. The coat features four front pockets, two inside zip pockets, a waterproof wool composition and nylon lining. Wear it with a cashmere cable knit and a pleated trouser for a European-facing, warm winter coat for men vibe.


Bring back the duffle coat. We want to see more of them out there on the streets. Channel your inner Paddington Bear. The Mackintosh Weir black duffle is tailored from 100% refined wool with a 4-horn toggle front closure, hood, throat latch, long sleeves with adjusters and flap front pockets. As is the case with all Mackintosh garments, the duffle is made in the United Kingdom and also happens to be a great option for dealing with the local weather. 


A casual jacket with Italian smarts from Velasca. The Mombaldone cotton parka is made from a 100% cotton canvas with an eco-sherpa lining for warmth, with four front and two internal pockets. Made for comfort, it’s as at home up in the

mountains as it is down in the city, with elegant flourishes like an antique brass colour zipper and horn buttons. Crafted in Riese Pio in Italy, layer up cable and ribbed-knitted jumpers underneath. 

Wax London

Big fits need big coats. The Santoni from Wax London is one such big coat. Big coat energy. Big warmest winter coat for men energy. The Santoni is a double breasted big boy in a caramel wool mix with cuff tabs, back vent and internal glove pocket. It’s a big silhouette that lends itself to baggy trousers and a pair of sneakers. Also big enough to sit nicely atop tailoring too.


It’s almost a cliche when thinking about coats but some people do genuinely wait all year long for a chance to wear something like this, the Foret shelter wool coat. Made for Autumn Winter and available in navy or army green, the Shelter is a classic tailored overcoat with buttons up the front, made in Portugal from 100% wool. It’s a garment that works great with casual knits as well as smarter tailoring. Take good care of it and it’ll look the part.

Richard James

What a belter this is from Saville Row stalwart Richard James. No pun intended. A serious signature piece, the use of 100% alpaca in this case is typical of the brand’s love of unconventional materials and bold patterns. This double breasted coat features snug roll over cuffs, a belted middle and a signature camo lining. Owing to its materials it’s hands down one of the warmest winter coats for men and one that’ll set you back.

Polo Ralph Lauren

Last but not least, one for the warmest winter coats for men list via the American prep purveyors Polo Ralph Lauren. Another puffa option that’s longer for extra coverage and insulation. The Forester is the ultimate winter coat. Made from quilted ripstop, and packed with insulating down, it features a detachable hood, velcro cuffs and roomy cargo pockets. There’s also an internal drawstring for tightening it around the waist for a snugger fit.
