If the good folks over at the Met Office are to be believed, we are in for one of the coldest Winter on record, we better wrap up. It’s time once again to start wearing warm and cosy winter coats and hang those light jackets back up the wardrobe. Now some people may have been dreading the cold weather, but if you’re anything like us over here at CMTM, we’ve been waiting all year to bust out our winter coats. However, if like some people you aren’t prepared for the cold, or have had your winter coat too long and want a change or simply need an update, we are going to show you. In the third and final post of this season’s “Ask the experts” we’ve sort the wise counsel to that age old quandary “What is your ultimate coat for this Winter?” below you we find the answers from a prestigious panel of menswear buying experts.
Pete Parry, Founder and Owner of, Steranko
“My ultimate coat this season is the Have Jacket from Bellerose. Stuffed with real feather down and completely waterproof, its a great jacket that should see you from Autumn right up to the coldest winter months”
George Archer, Buyer, MRPORTER.com
“My top outerwear pick of the season is the Undercover Clockwork Orange Printed Jacket from the runway. The show was a stand-out, and I’m a huge Kubrick fan.”
Damien Paul’s (Head of Menswear, MATCHESFASHION.COM)“The Wales Bonner shearling-collar leather aviator jacket is my ultimate outerwear staple for the season. Crafted from soft leather and featuring a detachable cream luxe shearling collar, the coat is a stylish but functional alternative to the classic retro biker jacket. The accents of forest green panelling along the pocket fastenings also add a subtle but chic pop of colour.”
