But staying warm doesn’t have to mean playing it safe. Look to these stylish street-stylers, carefully constructing cozy-cool outfits around on-trend outerwear, and let them inspire your own cold-weather compositions.
INSPIRATION AND ADVICE
STYLISH GUYS IN COLD-WEATHER GEAR
By Matt Glazebrook, December 9, 2017
The classic double-breasted peacoat has been on the menswear back-burner for the past few winters, but your man here shows how to revive this seafaring-chic stalwart for FW17. Specifically, by adding in a chunky knit turtleneck, straight-leg jeans and a pair of Clarks Wallabees — like a cross between Robert Redford in 70s thriller Three Days of the Condor, and a mid-'90s Wu-Tang Clan affiliate.
Puffer the magic jacket
We all know the core-coddling qualities of a shearling lining. But one of winter 2017’s key sartorial moves has been to take that fleecy texture and stick it on the outside of our outerwear. It’s a punchier approach, so embrace the statement quality of your all-over-borg and rock a powerful pattern or bold hue — perhaps taking cues from street-style superstar Luka Sabbat's patchwork performance here.
