Looking for the Perfect Winter Jacket?

Well if you’ve not yet stepped outside then you may be in for a bit of a shock. It looks like winter has finally hit and jack frost is here to stay for a few weeks if not months. However if there is one fashion piece you need in your arsenal then make it be the winter jacket, our motto is “buy proper and buy once”. If you are looking for that winter jacket then our one piece of advice is to buy a timeless piece which you will be able to pull out year on year. A jacket or coat is worth spending the most you can afford as it will last you for years and a jacket is one of them great investment pieces.

To make your life a little easier we have pulled together a few of what we think would be our top drawer pieces. To help ease the pocket side of things we have now started our winter sale so if you have been thinking of that jacket purchase then now is as good a time as any.

If we mention a timeless classic then Napapijri Skidoo jacket certainly needs no introduction. Unchanged since it was introduced the Napapijri Skidoo has a thinsulate lining, fully taped seems and is fully waterproof. It is also made of cordura which is a material that is resistant to rips and its super hard wearing. Chilli red and Universe blue have been popular colours for hitting the slopes but you can’t go wrong with the blue marine or black for keeping you snug on the terraces. If the Napapijri Skidoo is a bit full on then the Napapijri Rainforest is the Skidoo’s younger brother. The Napapijri Rainforest still features heat taped seams making the rainforest fully waterproof and has a fleece lining keeping you warm on the inside. Both jackets are now on sale, the Napapijri Skidoo has now been reduced from £310 to £225 and the Rainforest has been reduced in the sale from £160 to £129.99.

Next up is the Carhartt Anchorage, Carhartt’s best selling winter jacket and always a sell out this year we feature the Anchorage in 3 colours Navy, Black and Cypress Green. The Anchorage is one of them jackets which just has it style, warmth and functionality. Fur lined hood gives the Anchorage a nice little premium touch and drawstrings and storm cuffs keeps the cold weather out. Currently on sale the Carhartt Anchorage is now reduced to £139.95 down from £185. Also for this season we have the bang on trend Belmont puffa jacket and Mosley multi pocket parka jacket.

If these jackets are a little to full on then do not over look the Original Penguin Convey puffa jacket which is at an amazing sale price of £95 and has real down feathers, yes you heard us right £95 for a jacket with real down feathers. Original Penguins fish tail parka is also a tasty little number for this season and comes lined for extra warmth.

New for this season we are stocking Victorinox, yes the brand that makes them handy little pocket knifes. If you’ve never seen or tried the Victorinox clothing then trust us when we say the quality is nothing less then excellent with little touches such as vent holes on shirts to technical material used on their super technical jackets. The two jackets that stand out for us are the Highlander jacket which has a removable liner for seasonal changes and the Rigton jacket which comes in two colour ways. Both jackets are now on sale.

This is just a little taster of what we think is up there for this season however don’t forget to look at the jackets from Liam Gallagher’s brand Pretty Green, Farah Vintage and Marshall Artist.
