Mens' Style Guide to Winter Coats

It was bitterly cold for our northern neighbours during their winter just past and the two words on everyone's lips were: polar vortex. Temperatures reached negative double digits with men resorting to wearing parkas on top of overcoats over puffa vests just to stay warm. It's almost unfathomable for us here in the Southern Hemisphere, but with the weather cooling down quicker than you can say "Is the footy on yet?", it's time to reach for a winter coat or jacket. 

But much like your girlfriend's shoes, just one is not enough — you need one for different occasions. Here's four styles to last you through winter, and what to wear with them.

The Overcoat

Typically worn over a suit, this is the coat that means business. Choose one with a long line silhouette and single row buttons to keep it sleek.

The Parka

Get all boys in the hood with the parka, a casual coat made for weekends and hipsters. It is typically shapeless in form so balance it out with straight or narrow cut pants to avoid looking dowdy.
