The winter coat. The interchangeable jacket. The trousers. The other trousers you wear through the weekend. The shirt. The other shirt that you always look out for. The t-shirt. Here are the building blocks to your winter wardrobe.
It's likely that you will be wearing your winter coat for up to five months of bitterly cold British winter. We don’t like to start on a negative foot, it’s a little pessimistic, but we’re just being honest. Anyway, what that means is that you must choose your coat wisely. A Day’s March have been at the forefront of the upgrading your wardrobe essentials of late and now the Swedish collective have stepped into outwear. It's a successful step too, on the evidence of this Classic Wool Coat. Cut in a comfortable straight fit, thigh length, single-breasted silhouette with generous lapels, oversized flap pockets, functional storm buttons and a fully lined interior. It's got the lot.
The Workers Club's easy-to-wear jackets really come into their own during winter. Made for all the moments that you need a durable winter coat and the days when you need a slightly lighter layer, too. They have it all. This Olive Shell Jacket is the pick of the bunch; crafted from an exclusive Italian fabric that is water-repellent, breathable, wind-resistant and above all completely natural. However, it’s in the small details where the jacket really excels. The detachable drawstring hood, for example. Or the discreet phone pocket on the upper chest, the handwarmer pockets and also the internal drawstring waist that can be adjusted to find a silhouette that suits you.
The Schnayderman’s One Shirt is representative of the brand’s tradition of reworking classic silhouettes with a timeless quality. It’s made from Portuguese cotton that possesses a crisp, lightweight texture, to ensure the shirt will age perfectly over time. While, the classic button-down collar, curved hem and dependable black colour hue ensure the shirt will also act as the perfect complement to grey, navy, khaki – basically every other colour in your winter wardrobe.
The Hermosa Trousers are known as being Legends ‘all-time favourite pair of chinos’ which is a better intro than we could’ve written ourselves to be honest. Cut from a special cotton blend that has a bit of extra stretch, the trousers also feature an elastic drawstring waist which is something you can’t underestimate. They’re particularly useful through winter as they have a little added texture, a little added durability and they’re the perfect slim-line fit which makes them appropriate for almost every eventuality – from work through to the weekend.
The slightly relaxed tapered leg of these Déjà vu trousers automatically nudges them above the heavy cottons and denim jeans that you’ve been wearing for some time. Then they’re pushed even further to the top of your winter wardrobe thanks to the textured Italian cotton twill, the beautiful green garment dyed finish and the delightfully understated Corozo button at the waist.
A.P.C’s growing selection of premium menswear essentials pays great attention to detail and colour to provide the perfect balance between comfort and innovation. This Yakuta T-Shirt is a case in point as it has that extra-special quality of just looking good thanks to its tailored fit, extra soft cotton construction and understated chest stripe. You’ll wear it a lot.
