Must-Have Smart Winter Coats for Men

With winter still well underway, your outerwear collection needs to be on point as we continue to battle low temperatures and rain. It’s key that you have the right coats for the job, whether you’re heading out on the town or simply meeting friends for dinner. One such style of outerwear you should always have handy is a smart coat. 

Men’s smart coats are a perfect addition to your wardrobe as they can dress up an outfit effortlessly, and ensure you have the right attire for the occasion. The question is, what style do you choose? Here we offer a guide to some of the must-have smart winter coats for the season.


Wool overcoat

For day or evening, a wool overcoat is a versatile and smart style that can be worn over almost anything. With a structured silhouette reminiscent of a blazer, the wool overcoat usually features a collar, button closure and pockets, resulting in a practical yet sophisticated design.


Consider investing in a wool overcoats created in a neutral colour palette; beige or grey are usually favoured over brighter shades as it can make them easier to wear throughout the year. Some heritage styles are created with a subtle check pattern to add further style to your outfit. 


Cord jackets

Adding unique texture to your wardrobe is the perfect way to upgrade your outerwear collection, with many men’s jackets appearing very similar in style. Corduroy has long been a popular fabric for staples like trucker jackets, offering a cool retro style that can be worn in the day or night.


Usually created in neutral shades of beige, tobacco or navy, cord jackets still maintain good layer of warmth despite their apparent lightweight composition. What’s more, they are the perfect smart style to wear over a shirt or polo.


Sherpa collared jackets

To add a little more flair to your winter coat, you can’t beat Sherpa lining. It can be attached to any number of styles, including bomber jackets and parka jackets. Both of these styles can be worn as a smart winter coat, particularly when paired with trousers and smart shoes.


Sherpa collars on jackets can add a great design feature that gives the style something a little extra. In particular, if you are buying a dark-coloured jacket, the white or beige Sherpa lining can really lift it.


Padded gilet 

Not a jacket as such, but smart outerwear can come in many forms. This includes a padded gilet, which is perfect for taking you through winter and into spring. A gilet can be worn effortlessly over a jumper or shirt to create a smart outfit with the additional warmth that you need at this time of year.


Opt for a darker coloured design such as navy or black for an effortless look, with a padded design that perfectly blurs the lines between smart attire and street-savvy.
