1. The wax jacket



Barbour Ashby Wax Jacket

 

Brave the usual cold temperatures and guaranteed rainfall in this protective style, as sported by Daniel Craig. With plenty of pockets and ample storage opportunity for snackage, this coat will suffice on longer hikes as well as to your local corner shop.


Barbour, Ashby Wax Jacket, £168.00

 


2. The camel coat



All Saints Manor Coat

 

Camel screams sophistication, classiness and know-how, and this buttery number says all of that in abundance. For work, for family time in the garden, for that romantic winter rendezvous walking over a twinkly bridge… we can picture it all with this coat.


All Saints, Manor Coat, £110.00

 


3. The puffer jacket



The North Face The La Paz Jacket

 

Long-line puffer coats were a massive trend on the autumn/winter catwalks. If the idea of an oversized duvet-for-the-road feels a little on the toasty side, try this technical and smart black iteration from the always dependable The North Face.


The North Face, Saikuru Jacket, £200.00

 


4. The utility jacket



Barbour International Atholl Casual Jacket

 

Iconic outdoor brand Barbour have waltzed straight from the forests to the urban jungle with gear that works for both the Pyrenees and Peckham. We’re big fans of this workwear jacket in light grey, with its secret foldaway hood in the back for when the heavens open.


Barbour International, Atholl Casual Jacket, £115.00

 


5. The trucker jacket



Levis Trucker Jacket

 

A trucker jacket does two things very well. It’s got easy, authoritative cool and a soft side – pretty much how you want to come across in most situations. This Levi’s special will make a great first impression.


Levis, Trucker Jacket, £68.00

 


6. The parka



Jack Wills Brainbrook Parka Coat

 

When cold weather calls, a parka comes running. Keeping you toasty (and stylish) its everyone’s favourite throwback piece. Your winter wardrobe is in need of this welcome addition from Jack Wills.


Jack Wills, Brainbrook Parka Coat, £85.00

 


7. The leather jacket



Armarni Exchange Mid Bomber Jacket

 

Who’d have guessed it, Armarni Exchange make very good leather jackets, which is handy because leather was all over the AW20 catwalks. This one is on the casual, sporty side and will go with almost everything. We’re particularly keen on the silver hardware and pockets.


Armarni Exchange, Mid Bomber Jacket, £289.00

 


8. The mac



Fred Perry Houndstooth Mac Sn04

 

Macs mean business. Their fabric has protectionist vibes, their silhouette’s straight but not too structured (perfect for coffee runs) and they have serious style credentials. The effortless ease of the mac has got us all reaching for them once again and this houndstooth design from the masters at Fred Perry hits the nail on the head.


Fred Perry, Houndstooth Mac Sn04, £139.00

 


9. The bomber jacket



Alpha Industries Injector Iii Bomber Jacket

 

It’s cold. You’ve swapped crunchy salads for heart-warming soups and cranked up the central heating to high. We get it. For this season, a classic bomber jacket comes into its own as the not-too-hot-not-too-cold piece that’s perfect for layering over sweatshirts and hoodies.


Alpha Industries, Injector Iii Bomber Jacket, £144.00

 


10. The grey overcoat 



Calvin Klein Wool Blend Speckle Overcoat

 

Admittedly, we wear a lot of black and navy. So, if your outfits are mainly going to rotate around those two colourways, throw a new hue into the mix with a grey coat. It'll add a dash of urban interest to otherwise moody ensembles.


Calvin Klein, Wool Blend Speckle Overcoat, £330.00
