Our Top Pick John Lewis Winter Warmers

It has finally happened. Winter is here. The weather has changed and that means we need to alter our wardrobes to cope with these crisp mornings and chilly evenings. It is time to layer up over your shirts with possibly a nice cashmere jumper for work, or perhaps a nice tailored coat for all occasions. Of course footwear is also extremely important when it comes to warmth. Those flimsy trainers aren't going to do you any favours in the next coming months! John Lewis have a great winter selection for you men and MWS has picked out 10 pieces from the retailer's Winter Warmers edit that will easily cover you for all eventualities. Some of them could also make a great Christmas present idea for yourself or a family member. Time to drop a few hints!

The North Face 1985 Sherpa Mountain Waterproof Jacket

If you happen to be taking some nice country walks with a hound in tow over the festive period, this jacket will be perfect for those drizzly days. With its Sherpa lining and waxed cotton waterproof exterior, this will keep you completely dry and very warm. This is a really stylish mountain jacket and is available in two colour ways; navy and ink green. 

Ted Baker Camroon Suede Chelsea Boots

With the festive season upon us, your diaries will be rapidly filling up with invitations to various parties, along with potential dinners with the in-laws! If you need to impress then these smart chelsea boots are ideal. Perfectly understated with a sleek and clean-cut fit, they offer a casual laid-back look but still keep it classy. Perfect with dark jeans and a crisp shirt.

Gant Lambswool Cable Knit Cardigan

If you are a man comfortable in sporting a cardigan, then this cardigan is perfect for this season. The cable knit gives it added texture and the shawl neckline will keep your neck warm under a jacket. This is a cardigan that can be dressed up or warn casually with jeans. The suede patches on the elbows give added detail. 

John Lewis Pure Cashmere Epsom Overcoat

This coat really is a luxurious investment piece and why not treat yourself for the festive season! Along with the sharp and crisp lines of this elegant coat, I find camel to be a very flattering colour for men. Perfect to wear to work or throw on for a smart occasion at the weekend. As it is 100% cashmere this coat is light in weight, so it will carry you through to Spring but will also keep you very warm in the winter. A really beautiful coat.

Timberland 6" Icon Premium Leather Boots

Looking for a pair of robust boots for the winter? You can't really go wrong with these classic Timberlands. These will take you through all weather conditions and will keep your feet warm, dry and comfortable. Timberlands are extremely durable so will no doubt remain in your wardrobe for future winter seasons. 

Kin by John Lewis Birdseye Geometric Knit Lambswool Blend Jumper

If you aren't really a fan of the full-on Christmas jumper adorned with bells and tinsel... but still want that festive feel, then this jumper is a really nice option with its geometric print. A great jumper if you want to step away from the usual plain navy worn for work and it will keep you toasty in the pub whilst catching a few glances.

John Lewis & Co Made in England Merino Cable Knit Jumper

As part of their 'heritage' collection, this is a heavy knitted jumper that is made to last. This is designed to be snug so if you want a looser fit, go for a larger size. It comes in navy or cream but I personally think the navy will look great over any pair of jeans for a casual classic look. 

John Lewis Pull Cord Suede Gloves

To add a bit of luxury to your winter wardrobe, then why not try some suede gloves, instead of the usual knitted ones. These are actually knitted on the inside to add some extra warmth. With the pull cord they will fit nice and snug around the hands. Can definitely recommend spraying these with a suede protection product before using though.

John Lewis Slub Boot Socks

These socks will fit perfectly into any walking boot. Consisting of thick robust cotton, there won't be any signs of any holes anytime soon! Ideal socks to pack for a weekend rural getaway where you can put your feet up in front of a roaring log fire, without any embarrassment! 

John Lewis Made in Italy Cashmere Scarf

The best way to stay warm is to invest in some cashmere accessories. You won’t want to go a day without one of these cosy Italian cashmere scarves. Available in a variety of colours and at a reasonable price, it will also make a fantastic gift. I personally like the plum or charcoal.
