A tour around the best men’s winter coats ideas for this season

It’s time to improve your outfit and looks. This should be your new year’s resolution.

As the summer wardrobe frays, it’s time to get boots and heavy men’s winter coats

Gentlemen, I must say that if you spend wisely and know how to choose the best coats among the men’s winter coats collection, the winter’s biggest budget buster will come with more pitfalls than most.

For wet and mild winters, mid-weight wool is warm and allows air to circulate when you get sweaty.

But how to make the most of your maths? Wool costs significantly more than cotton. But that doesn’t mean a cotton coat is less well made than a wool one.

Let’s start with the first coat in our proposed men’s winter coats collection which is the pea coat; you may never wear one on deck, but the best are still storm-ready, built from heavy duty wool and feature an oversized collar to turn up against sea spray.

The pea coat works with tailoring, but for weekends (or work days) stay simple with a cable knit roll neck and heavy boots.

The trench coat is an essential in the men’s winter coats guide; it is a water-resistant alternative to the heavy wool greatcoat. A trench coat is often the best option for versatility in winter. One with taped seams will keep you dry and last you for years.

The down coat is also a great idea; try to buy explorer-approved elements; you’ll appreciate a weatherproof hood, taped seams and heavy duty zips. Try it with a grey sweatshirt, selvedge denim and hiking boots. A down coat will sit over your suit so long as its cut is slim.

Moving on the overcoat among the men’s winter coats collection; once super-formal, the overcoat now works with a hoodie and joggers as much as a suit. It has barely changed in three centuries, so this season’s purchase will look just as good the next. Try to pick a neutral colour and it can be slung over almost anything in your wardrobe.

 

When looking for a good winter coat, quality is key guys!
