Beat the unpredictable weather this winter with our range of coats and jackets fresh in for the AW23 season.
First up is a classic Parka Jacket, everybody needs one, right? Formerly known as Outland, French fashion house Parages brings us the The Wool Refuge Coat. A modern take on a classic design, this coat has a large hood, adjustable tabs at the cuffs, a hybrid closure system including a metal zip and a button placket, as well as two very deep flap pockets to hold all your everyday items (wallet, keys and even a book). The Parka is unlined with a slightly oversized cut, ideal for winter layering. Wear the Wool Refuge over a denim or leather jacket, to keep the outfit sleek without going cold.
Another parka, this time brought to us by Elvine - they don’t mess around when it comes to winter coats. None of this ‘water resistant’ talk, the Gunter is made from a 8,000mm column waterproof fabric and 200g Thermore®-padding. Whether you’re working in the city or hiking in the rain, the fleece lined pockets will be there for extra warmth every step of the way. Shown here in a deep navy, the Gunter is the perfect choice over a suit.
Ideal for the casualness of everyday, the Kool Herc is a short, boxy-fit puffer jacket from our friends at YMC. Shown here in a beautiful olive, khaki green colour, style this quilted coat with a light coloured chino and Chelsea boot or keep it really casual and wear over your favourite tracksuit for those winter dog walks. Kool Herc is made from a high quality chevron quilt with Italian ecodown wadding ripstop, the body is finished in a soft brushed cotton.
The next two pieces we present are from Texas born brand, Stan Ray. They make clothes designed for wear and movement, with minimum fuss and maximum practicality, for rough work or lateral living, aiming for durable, all-purpose and honest every time.
With that in mind, the Stan Ray Puffer is not your average coat. Cut for a relaxed silhouette, this jacket sits snugly on the upper thigh thanks to an internal elasticated bottom hem and has a waterproof performance up to 5,000mm thanks to the two layered fabric construction. Immense insulation is provided by a 90/10 down quilt. The hood is detachable to give the jackets a second sleeker looking silhouette and dual internal pockets and front hand warmers allow plenty of room to store your possessions.
The weather can be a little unpredictable at times and the Down Vest is an ideal lighter layer, with all the benefits of the Stan Ray Puffer in a sleeveless silhouette. The Down Vest is a Gilet style bodywarmer in a neutral-toned Olive that can be styled really effortlessly with your favourite knitwear, or even under a lighter jacket for some extra warmth.
We couldn’t finish this post without including the La Paz Baptista Jacket, it’s a smart button down jacket with a really classic silhouette. The styling of this jacket is endless, wear it on it’s own as an overshirt fully buttoned or replace your blazer with the Baptista to make a full suit slightly more casual. This button down has been carefully crafted with a wool lining and comfortable cotton outer, so practical in the winter!
