4 Winter Staples For The Discerning Gentleman

It’s only getting colder and the time has come to substitute the cool, light-toned fabrics for deeper winter hues and more heavy-duty clothing. With this guide, we reveal this season’s must-haves that subtly work FW17 trends into your wardrobe (no orange and moss green, we promise) and adapt your style for the gruelling winter weather…

It’s good news – roll-necks featured more than ever on the catwalks this season. It’s a sophisticated staple that lends itself well to any winter wardrobe and will definitely keep you cosy. For a polished, executive look with a modern twist, layer a charcoal or burgundy roll-neck under your suits. Simply swap out the blazer for a shearling collared denim jacket or a relaxed leather jacket for a more casual, post-work drinks look that exudes style. And voilà – instant outfit change with minimal effort.

Whether it’s leather, denim or corduroy, a shearling collared jacket is a timeless staple for any wardrobe – but it’s best worn in the winter, as it can be overbearing for other seasons. The shearling collared jacket is the perfect choice for the gentleman who favors the smart-casual ensemble and likes to be comfortable. It looks great with dark chinos, a roll neck or even layered over a shirt and tie to keep you warm on the way to the office. If you’re styling the shearling collar with workwear, make sure you opt for a longer length jacket to keep it smart. Choose deeper hues to blend seamlessly with your other winter staples.
