Button Up | Top Jackets This Winter Gent on the street 11 December, 2013 1 Undeniably, its the time of year that a gilet won’t cut it against the cold and worn alone, a sweater will leave you feeling naked. A good jacket is essential for any gent to successfully navigate his way through the colder climes. With offerings from brands including Elvine, The North Face and Sandro, we’ve selected our favourite winter jackets. Fridolf by Elvine With an oil wax outer coating, PVC coated reverse and silk padded non-removable inner jacket – you’ll be well guarded against rain and wind (you’d expect nothing less from a Swedish designer). Camel coat by ZARA This wool-rich double breasted jacket is suitable for work and play. The Camel coat is equipped with a fur collar and a belt, as well as two front pockets which offer a refuge to cold hands. Powelly MTD Jacket by Aigle The Parka remains a winter favourite for a many men. This military inspired duck down Parka by French brand Aigle, has a racoon fur brim and sherpa lined hood with leather detailing on the jacket itself. Manteau Warsaw Noir by Sandro Another double breasted choice, the Manteau Warsaw trench coat is 100% cotton made. Complemented with a warming sheepskin collar, this is perfect for formal occasions. Khaki Detachable Hooded Parka by Pretty Green Yes we’ve snuck another Parka onto the list! This three-in-one jacket has an outer shell of soft cotton canvas, a zip out hooded quilted bomber jacket and a detachable fur hood trim. Guaranteed to provide warmth, this Parka has Liam Gallagher written all over it. Available in Khaki and Black. Liddesdale Quilted Jacket by Barbour The Liddesdale is a timeless jacket that will suit everyday wear. Compared to other jackets on the list, worn alone, the Liddesdale will not provide as much warmth. However, with a generous fit, this quilted jacket will allow plenty of room for chunky sweaters or scarves. Available in rustic, olive, navy, navy / at.blue, black / red and black. Nuptse by The North Face No winter jacket selection would be complete without the appearance of The North Face. A winter staple, the brand is renowned for well insulated jackets. The goose filled Nuptse certainly provides this. Available in red, black, blue, grey and coffee brown. One Response SI1 11 December, 2013 Oh my days that Powelly MTD Jacket is amazing!
