With the nights drawing in ever earlier, it may be time to refresh your wardrobe – particularly if you’re shivering over your car bonnet with an ice scraper each morning.

Although that windbreaker or mac was working fine in September, suddenly November has brought in a whole new kind of cold. For those who need a burst of inspiration, here’s our pick of the best men’s winter coats for 2017:

The Overcoat

Heritage patterns and particularly checks have been big this year in the shows, with the theme popping up everywhere from trousers to tailoring. The ‘windowpane’ check in particular has been replicated strongly across many of the big name designer brands. A slightly looser fit is one of the key ways to wear.

Men’s Grey Check Wool And Cashmere-Blend Epsom Coat by Paul Smith. £975

Biscuit Vintage Check Wool Handmade Topcoat by Gieves & Hawkes £1195

The Shearling

The Shearling is very much back in this year, with the high street churning out faux versions at a rate of knots. However, if you can afford one, an original lambskin might be the way to go, even if you do have to skip a few weekend dinners.

Men’s Brown Shearling and Lamb Leather Jacket by Paul Smith. £2200

Brown Shearling Leather Lined Coat by Armani Collezioni £2150

The Packable Down

Lightweight, yet cosy. These jackets can be folded away at a moments notice and are therefore very easy to travel with. Grab a technical waterproof variety to ensure versatility, whatever the English weather throws at you. Plus, they’re not too hard on the wallet either.

Relaxed Fit Packable Down with Technical Waterproof Fabric by BOSS £350

Capture

The Shell

Capable of resisting anything thrown at it, the Shell jacket is super warm and technically capable. You can stay out all day without bother, particularly with the outer water resistant layer and insulated lining.

Black Quilted Shell Coat by Stone Island at Harvey Nichols £750

TommyXGigi

This is the third season of the increasingly popular Tommy Hilfiger & Gigi Hadid partnership to hit the shelves (with another due to follow next Spring). The perfect sartorial mix, cannily branded TommyXGigi, features an edgy take on nineties rebellion, including classic tartan, platform sneakers, and a new graphic style for the varsity logo.

TommyXGigi T-Shirt

It’s safe to say that this slightly grungier direction for the model-designer is the best yet, with our favourite pieces being the tartan slip dress and this gorgeous cropped Thermore Bomber (pictured at the top of this page). Also on our wish list; these sporty crop top and jeggings, available now in black or red.

Shop the collection in store now or online at Tommy Hilfiger or find our more from Gigi herself by watching the video below!
