Winter Jackets 101

19th Dec 2022

Marking the middle of winter, it’s time we take a deep dive into winter jackets and coats. With something for every occasion, regardless of dress code, Johnny Bigg has something to keep you warm through these chilly months. Whether you’re located in the snowy north, or warmer south, you’ll find plenty of options and sizes ranging from L to 8XL so you’re bound to find one you love. 

Formal Men's Coats

Winter weddings, morning commutes and evening events call for something a little more, heavy duty than a suit jacket or blazer! You’ll want something with plenty of room in the arms and around your body to accommodate several layers underneath, such as a jumper and sports coat, whilst still being comfortable and tailored well.

Bring some color to gloomy days with the Landon Wool Overcoat, which is fully lined with pockets both inside and in front to keep your hands safe from the wind. It looks great layered with a pair of dark jeans or dress pants, a neutral knit like the Bentley Half Zip Sweater, and your go-to scarf.

Alternatively, the Roman Wool Overcoat has a mini check pattern that will instantly elevate any outfit. The dark bluey-charcoal color of this formal coat makes it super easy to style too, looking great paired with a navy suit, jeans, or even a tan or cream colored chino

Date Night and Dinner Jackets & Coats

Dress to impress this wintertime with something fashionable yet comfortable. Throw the Hutton Coat over any outfit, it’s guaranteed to look great. The funnel neck will keep the wind at bay, so you can enjoy your evening shiver-free. If it’s a more casual evening, the Redmond Harrington Jacket looks at home at the cinema drive-in, a football or hocket game, the waterfront bar, or the museum. Pair the jacket with your Leo Crew Neck Sweater and Adler Pintuck Pant for a versatile, classic look.

The Guilford Melton Trucker looks great over a plaid shirt, so always keep this one on hand for after work drinks, morning walks, and when you’re roped into a paint and wine evening. 

Weekend Staples

Whether you want to be prepared for a last minute grocery or coffee run, or have a full two days of activities planned, you’ll need a jacket prepared for anything. Water resistant, with a teddy fur lined hood, the Auston Parka Jacket is the answer. Invited to go ice skating? Sorted. Caught out in the drizzle waiting for the bus home? No stress. It’s the only coat you’ll need on that weekend camping trip.

With the same weather resistance, and a little less bulk, the bright stone Travis Windbreaker is a great choice for your day-to-day. The Velcro wrist cuff fastening and bungee cord hood has you covered regardless of how the day turns, and looks great with just about anything, but we recommend pairing it with dark jeans and a patterned top for a modern look

Casual Jackets

When it comes to casual wardrobe staples, nothing does it quite like the denim jacket. Our Colorado Denim Jacket comes with a detachable hood, making it the perfect choice to keep you warm and stylish even into Spring and Summer. A simple crew neck sweater and chinos is all you need to put together an outfit, with your winter boots or sneakers to finish it off.
