Men’s Coats & Jackets Edit: Autumn/Winter 2018
Summer seems to have abruptly come to a bitterly cold end, which means it’s time to change up your wardrobe. While we could give you a long list of ‘must-have’ essentials, we all know that a couple of extra jumpers and some extra thick socks will do you wonders. Really, the most important thing you need to get right this season is your jacket/coat.
With the downpours and wind chills just around the corner, getting a jacket sorted for AW18 is essential. Not only will it give you protection from the wind and rain, when it comes to style, a jacket is the thing you’ll be wearing most this season – so you may as well push the boat out and get something you really want. With that in mind, here’s a list of some of our favourite jackets perfect for the autumn/winter 2018…
Arc’teryx Thorium AR Hoody
If you’re purely after high-end performance this season, look no further than Canadian outerwear specialists Arc’teryx. Famed for their market-leading technical mid-layers and insulated jackets, this season we love their Thorium AR Hoody. Designed for ‘true alpine conditions’, the versatile Thorium performs as a cold weather midlayer during ski season, and just as perfectly as a standalone on the morning commute. Its lofty 750 fill European grey goose down gives it incredible warmth despite its light weight. Durable and resilient, the hood, cuffs and arms feature Coreloft synthetic insulation technology too just for good measure. Its two outer zipped pockets and one internal zipper pocket also make it practical enough for urban use.
Pretty Green Bonded Hooded Parka
Website: Pretty Green
A parka is an essential when winter comes around and we love this Hooded Parka from Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green label. Featuring full front logo embossed brown button fastening and a large hood a woven tartan check lining, the Hooded Parka is ideal for every day use with the khaki parka design offering some sophistication. To keep your warm, there’s some adjustable button fastening cuffs on the sleeves and two pockets on the waist.
Dickies Oakvale Jacket
Website: Dickies Life
The perfect fusion between performance and style, we love this Oakvale jacket by workwear stalwarts Dickies. Part of their Dickies Life collection, the Oakvale feature padded lining and a funnel neck for extra warmth, as well as 2 welted zip pockets on the hip and 2 internal pockets for some added security. The fit is regular too, meaning there’s plenty of room underneath for some extra layers. Available in Orange, Dijon and Black colourways.
Columbia Men’s Challenger Pullover
A waterproof pullover is always going to be handy this time of year, and we’ve always had a good relationship with Columbia and their outerwear offerings. This season, we love the Challenger Pullover; a lightweight and water-resistant pullover jacket inspired by jackets from the 90s. It features a waterproof fabric overlay and a drawcord adjustable hem so you save dry, while the colourblock design features an oversized pocket at the front. Warm, dry and comfortable, this all-rounder should see you right through until springtime.
ellesse Terrazzo Jacket
A renowned winter favourite, the sporty Terrazzo jacket from ellesse takes its inspiration from the brand’s ski heritage. This classic full zip jacket has a drawcord hood and elasticated cuffs to help block out the cold, while the twin front pockets keep frosty hands warm and provide plenty of space for storing essentials. It’s available in Blue, Navy and Red but we think Yellow adds some much needed brightness to your wardrobe this winter.
TOG24 Hexham Jacket
For warmth, we like this Hexham insulated hooded jacket from Yorkshire label TOG24, who have just celebrated their 60th anniversary. Set to be your go-to in icy conditions this winter, the Hexham’s showerproof and windproof performance is given an insulating boost, courtesy of the broad quilted panels that incorporate a thick layer of wadding. The cold-weather protection is furthered by a cosy hood with faux-fur trim for extra coverage. A complete bargain in the sale for £63.
So there we have it. Let us know your favourites from the season in the comments below!
