During the winter season in wardrobes around the world, sweaters and sweatshirts are replaced by different kinds of garments specifically designed for low temperatures.
Men’s fashion is no exception and also has outer pieces to keep warm when the seasons change.Men’s coats and jackets are the key garment in winter clothing,
and choosing the right one for your style is easier than you think: you just have to bear a few characteristics in mind, such as appearance, fabric, colour, and the use you will put it to.
Men’s coats for the cold
Men’s coats and jackets come in a wide range of designs
and styles. Generally, the difference between masculine coats and jackets lies in the length and the material they are made from,
although there are some materials that can be found both in jackets and in three-quarter-lengths. Depending on the climate you are facing, and the type of event you’re attending, you’ll have to opt for one type of garment or another.Wool coats:
they have a variable length and they are warm and smart.
They have wide lapels and double-breasted buttons at the front.
They can be 100% wool, 50% wool and 50% polyester, or even 100% polyester. Combine them with dress trousers for formal attire.Parkas:knee-length
coats specially designed to withstand low temperatures. Filled with down
or synthetic fibre, they have a fur-lined hood. Perfect for informal outings
in the winter.Trench coats: thin, lightweight, classic and timeless coats
dating back over a hundred years. Although in their day they were worn by the military, they are now a basic garment in the masculine wardrobe. They offer a smart, polished look
and they can help you keep warm and dry during autumn and winter.Waterproofs:
they come down to the hip, making them a great option
for rainy days. They have drawstrings at the waist and cuffs, as well as an opening with a half-length zip.
Combine them with sweatshirts
and jeans for a sporty look.
To wear any of these men’s coats, you’ll have to strike a balance between the top part and the lower part,
to prevent the look from becoming too overloaded.
For example, to go out for dinner
on a day when it’s not too cold you can wear a wool coat
with a cashmere sweater, some straight-cut jeans and Chelsea boots.
However, if it gets colder and you wear something thicker on top, like a thick wool sweater, or a sweatshirt, the best option is a parka with some black skinny jeans and matching >boots.
