Make sure your outerwear is on point – throwing on whatever is lying around and warm won’t cut it. No man’s wardrobe is complete without a decent coat. Made from a heavy fabric such as wool (merino, Melton etc.), the overcoat is a long-sleeved coat that can be either single – or double-breasted, and usually has a single vent at the back. Traditionally the overcoat always extends below the knee, but you’ll find that modern day styles rarely do, given the impracticality of long outerwear.

If you don’t already own one, an overcoat – whether it’s classic black or eye-catchingly bright – should be top of your sartorial winter wish-list!
