autumn/winter coats

Get your coat, you’ve pulled.

Autumn Winter is the one half of the year that you are mainly covered up at all times. Coats are such an important piece for the season, I’ve pulled together a list of the keys coats (let’s go shopping).

This seasons key Harrington is from River IslandThe Brown wool-blend harrington jacket (left) is the perfect combination of warm and stylish, due to the cool shade of brown and the wool-blend trim. Coming in at £85.00 this coat is perfect for your much needed autumnal look.

Something a little more formal next. The Long Tweed Double Breasted Coat is a must have for any man this season (perfect to go over suits too). The Harris Tweed Pure Wool Long Length Double Breasted Coat (left) from Topman  is the perfect for the man who was a more formal look this Autumn Winter. With a thick lining and long length, the pure wool coat comes in at a heavy £180.00 but is definitely an investment which you can keep on loving over the seasons to come.

Something that comes around and around after each season is the Overcoat. Using the colour of the season (Camel) and the style of the season, the ASOS Wool Overcoat In Camel (left) is the best for a stylish, affordable overcoat. Coming in at £90.00,  this coat factors in affordability and the perfect cut that’s both casual and formal.

Looking for a cosier look? The Parka is a type of coat with a hood, often lined with fur or faux fur. The Cotton Canvas Fishtail Four Pocket Parka (left) from is a perfect for that super wintery, its going to snow, i’m freezing to death, why isn’t it summer – look. Based in khaki or navy the coat is perfect for that more relaxed look. Pair with a casual t-shirt, skinny jeans and sneakers this season. Coming in at £50.00 it’s the cheaper alternative to a more formal overcoat.

The jacket, which became popular in the 1950’s with “Greasers” has remained a key staple in any man’s fashion wardrobe, all through Motor Cyclists, Goths and Punks. Present day the jacket has become a piece worn by many (regardless of fashion group) and the Faux Leather Jacket is as popular as ever. The Leather Jacket (left) from Idle Man is perfect for any man’s wardrobe during the Autumn Winter season. At £60.00 in black, the jacket is perfect for those edgier looks.
