mens winter jackets - winter style for guys

For men, redesigning a wardrobe for a new season can be a daunting task. Not only does it require shopping (a man’s “nightmare”) but you have to pay specific attention to new trends to ensure that you are not investing money in ‘dud’ items.


To make it easier, we’ll be posting up some advice that will help you become the gentlemen of tomorrow with minimal effort and without breaking the bank today.


A well-fitted formal jacket is essential to maintaining a timeless charm. Any outfit becomes instantly stylish with the addition of this must-have wardrobe item.


If you’d like to stick to the subtle look make sure that you get a jacket in a neutral colour (navy blue or black). This will make it easier to wear it with various other items you may already own. Pair it a good shirt, tailored jeans and loafers for a laid-back yet effortless trendy look. 2nd Take has got your back covered on this front; we’ve got a few choices for you in our online store, including this Aquascutum jacket that’s perfectly suited for the winter months.

If you’re feeling adventurous and want a different take on this winter warmer opt for a white, beige or cream coat. These colours, when worn right, are professional and classy. The clean look makes for a good contrast with other winter colours such as maroon or grey, and will look great with a scarf or loose-fitting beanie. Check out our Mila Schono Uomo jacket that has a nouveau yacht feel that looks slick and brings warmth to any winter’s day.

Of course, for the very chilly days only a thick coat will suffice. Go for a standard style grey button up jacket – it’ll go with any other colour and looks great on men.

When wearing your winter jacket there are a few things you should avoid:


  • Buy an oversized jacket – it will do nothing for your shape.
  • Opt for multicoloured or patterned jackets – you want your coat to work with your other wardrobe choices.
  • Choose a badly tailored coat – winter jackets look best tailored.
