Lockdown Two is over, which means we can (safely) step outside again. What’s the best way to do this? In style of course. Unlike the end of the first lockdown, which meant shorts and suncream in the park, this time you’re going to have to wrap up warm to look the part. Whether you are going back into the office, to get your Christmas pressies sorted, or just to revisit your favourite old haunts, you are going to want to make sure you turn some heads in the process. So, gents, throw your trackies in the wash, you won’t be needing them anymore, and look no further for the best men’s winter coats so you can peacock again this December.

Acne-Studios

Acne Studios Shearling Aviator Jacket Black, £2,000, acnestudios.com

Made with soft grain leather and lined with shearling for real warmth and style, this will ensure a classically cool look – oh, and be sure to pop the collar for extra gravitas.

Alexander-McQueen

Alexander McQueen Deconstructed Quilted Down Jacket, £2,370, alexandermcqueen.com

Make a statement with your look by adding a splash of colour with this envy inducing number from Alexander McQueen. Its red hem and hood are very magic circle, or go incognito by detaching them, although, let’s face it, you’ll want them back on soon.

 

Barbour

Barbour Gold Standard Wax Baffle Hiking Coat, £499, barbour.com

Barbour has set the standards on coats for a long old time, so this is only called the Gold Standard because it is. Moleskin lined hand-warming pockets, a detachable hood and large bellow pockets, not to mention Barbour’s rewaxing service, this coat is one that will be with you for a long time.

 

Mackintosh

Mackintosh Dundee Brick Red Nylon Liner Vest, £300, mackintosh.com

Not your typical Sloaney gilet, this liner vest in brick red is a different take on an old classic. Italian lightweight nylon and recycled Thermore insulation will keep you extra warm when worn under a coat, or even just rocked over a jumper.

 

New-and-Lingwood

New & Lingwood Herringbone Double-Breasted Great Coat, £1,500, newandlingwood.com

Versatile to the point it can be worn over a suit or with jeans and a pair of boots, this double-breasted coat is made with wool and cashmere, available in grey or navy, and is steeped in military heritage.

 

North Face copy

The North Face Men’s Lhotse Expedition Jacket, £300, thenorthface.co.uk

Named after the fourth highest summit in the world and inspired by a 1987 expedition to top Everest, this high-performance coat is made from discarded plastic bottles collected in the Himalayan foothills. Filled with 700-fill of responsibly sourced down, you can be assured you won’t be complaining of the cold in this expedition jacket.

 

Schoffel

Schōffel Barrowden Quilt Jacket, £239.95, schoffelcountry.com

Stay smart with a casual note in this much-loved style from Schōffel. Suede trim, water resistant, high thermal insulation, the Barrowden Quilt Jacket ticks all the boxes. Roll down the King’s Road, or romp through the Cotswolds, Schōffel always has you covered.

 

Sunspel

Sunspel Men’s Wide Wale Corduroy Harrington Jacket in Navy, £365, sunspel.com

Corduroy is cool, so no doubt you’ll have compliments coming at you from every direction when you step outside in this jacket. All Italian cotton in a wide wale cord, a jumper is all you need underneath for sharp, understated look.

 

Turnbull-&-Asser

Turnbull & Asser Navy Dry-Waxed Cotton Field Jacket, £1,150, turnbullandasser.co.uk

The perfect seasonal coat for the fields or the streets, Turnbull & Asser’s dry-waxed cotton will keep you dry and warm, without the sticky feel of some other waxed jackets. Whether or not you plan on slinging a shotgun over your arm, or a Selfridges bag fit to burst, you’ll look the business in this.

 

Vivienne-Westwood

Vivienne Westwood Dorian Coat Flames, £1,250, viviennewestwood.com

Do you back yourself? Maybe you do, but are you really ballsy enough to pull this off? You know with the Vivienne Westwood label you are getting a carefully designed, beautiful item – this velvet overcoat is no different. The flame jacquard, taken from the archives, references global warming, rising temperatures and the challenges our planet faces. A thought-provoking piece then, that guarantees a jaw-dropping look.
