5 STYLISH JACKET/JUMPER COMBOS

By Chris Sayer, 4 January 2018

So it’s got cold enough for you to bust out that big winter investment coat you forked out for. Good for you, pal! Problem is, even though your new cover-up is ready to roll, you’re only halfway done. Have you considered what to wear underneath that cold-crushing garment to show it off to full effect? No? Fear not. We’ve got a few ideal solutions for you below…

Best for a bomber

A timeless outerwear option no matter the season, the bomber jacket is an essential style to own. Go for a patterned number à la this guy if you’re feeling bold and pair it with a plain monochrome hoodie – try and opt for one that comes in a similar colour to your bomber jacket to create a nice tonal ’fit. Bonus points if your hoodie is longline and/or oversized.

Best for a camel coat

This pairing is oft donned by the most stylish at the various men's fashion weeks. The camel coat – a heavyweight classic that should always be the centre of your outfit – needs little underneath (unless you want to create a personal sauna for your bod). But throwing one over a crewneck or long-sleeved tee seems a little… jarring. Go for a plain, figure-boosting roll-neck instead, to really set your look off with some English sophistication. Y’know, the ‘I do my weekend grocery shopping at Harrods’ kind.

Best for a pea coat

This one's for when the weather really starts to get chilly. Honestly, we can’t remember a time when a pea coat wasn’t an absolute winter essential. All those naval vibes paired with a strong association to Hollywood heroes (Redford, Nicholson and Peck for starters) mean you can spend that bit extra on one, safe in the knowledge that it’ll never fall outta fashion. And while you’re splurging, add a ribbed turtleneck or cable knit jumper to your basket to partner with it, so you can nail that stylish seafarer look.

Best for a parka

There are a few things in life that you should never, ever mess with. An expensive steak, a classic Old Fashioned cocktail recipe, Conor McGregor… And a parka – a coat so perfectly suited to beating winter that its furry hood, modish colourway and long length needn’t be changed. Honour tradition by sticking to the simple classics underneath: a crewneck sweater in a muted shade will do the trick, and keep the comfort levels at maximum, too.

Best for a trenchcoat

Curveball alert: we’re not partnering the classic trench coat with a jumper, as is usually expected. No, this time it’s all about adding another jacket. That’s right, we’re making an exception to our own rule for the simple reason that a trench thrown over a denim jacket is downright baller. Considered, stylish, utilitarian, on-trend and seriously snug, it’s a dream combo that sounds all wrong, but looks so right.
