7 STYLISH WINTER-READY MEN’S JACKETS
OUTERWEAR DEVELOPED TO STAND UP TO WIND, RAIN, HAIL AND SNOW
There are countless life lessons that will steer a style-savvy urban navigator successfully through the winter months. Simple things like not leaving home with wet hair, investing in decent gloves, packing a brolly on those days when even the weather girl can’t decide. But, without doubt the most important rule in surviving the chillier climes is ensuring your winter jacket purchase will pass muster. If you think the denim trucker or sporty bomber you bought back in June will stand up to a Force 10, then think again. For a winter warrior developed to stand up to wind, rain, hail and snow, you’re likely to need some tech-led protection.
But don’t forget that your commute is your daily catwalk and you don’t want to miss out on any opportunity to make an impression on the platform. It’s quite an art to find a jacket that will seamlessly work with a number of looks. Whether you’re going smart or slouchy, this will probably be the most expensive item in your wardrobe, so make your well-earned wages count with our selection of stylish outerwear treats.
