Top Men's Winter Coats From The High Street For 2012

« Back to Fashion

Published: 3 Dec 2012      

There are many classic designs and styles of men’s winter coats, but it’s important to think about the right coat for you. One of the things to think about is whether the winter coat will be worn for both work and for leisure. If you’re looking to have a winter coat that’s versatile enough to be able to be worn both with jeans and a casual jumper or with a smart suit then there are some styles to go for in preference to others.

If you’re looking for men’s winter coats which will protect against the bitter cold winds then you may find that some coats aren’t sufficient, but if you buy one that’s a little larger than you might normally wear you’ll be able to layer underneath it with a jumper. If you do intend wearing a jacket or jumper under your winter coat it’s best to make sure you buy a coat that’s big enough so that it does not look tight or bulky.

The team at Topping Forty paid a visit the high street to find out what the larger stores had in for this winter.

Blue Down Parka

Down is the ideal insulator, it's extremely warm, yet weighs very little. So although this parka may seem like a lightweight, it has a lot of functionality built in. The weather-resistant nylon shell is packed with 600 fill power down for complete warmth hood to hem. For extra help blocking the elements, our down parka sports an outer storm flap and draw cord hem. It has plenty of pockets too - all with secure closures to keep essentials safe. Lower patch pockets have a flap/snap closure, plus dual-side entry for hands, quick storage. Hand warmer pockets are lined with cosy fleece and have a hidden zip closure. Finally, tucked inside are two pockets, both with a rip-grip closure.


We hope this has taken some of the hassle out of hunting for a winter coat.
