If you are looking for a winter jacket and are also a football fanatic, then the choices of outerwear to keep you warm and support your team are endless. The styles range from lighter jackets, to down puffer-coats and wool jackets. Whatever style you choose, you can have with your team’s emblem. It doesn’t matter whether you are a college football fan or a fan of the NFL, you’ll be able to find the perfect jacket style for you.
The trends for winter coats this year are either oversized and a little boxy or tailored, fitted military style coats that emphasise a trim waist and broad shoulders. Check out the online stores such as www.superdry.com for the latest trends in men’s jackets.
Military styles are for work or dressy nights out, they’ll keep the heat in as the cold days and nights begin again. For the oversized trend, there are a variety of material and cuts available, ranging from wool to tweed and the colours of the season are anything from grey to duck egg blue. Go for a high cut, a stiff collar or funnel neck for an up to date look. Single or double breasted styles are available and they will keep you warm as well as looking good this winter. Herringbone and houndstooth prints are becoming popular, but if you think they’re a little overwhelming, stick to plain finishes.
Military styles are very popular and khaki and grey are the key colours for these flatteringly cut coats. A trench coat style is very practical for both work and casual days and why not invest in a waterproof one to make sure you’re ready for anything. Keep it subtle and simple and add colour with a bright scarf, or even a colourful sweater, underneath and leave the neck open a little on milder days.
Not your style? Not a problem. Aviator jackets and mens leather jackets are another big trend for this season. These are based on the forties style pilot jackets which were worn simply to keep warm, so these jackets are ideal for the frigid British winters. Dressed casually in jeans, boots and a warm sweater, these will work and look great, but they lend themselves equally well to be being worn over a suit for work. If you’ve always fancied being a pilot, give this look a go. Leather or sheepskin materials are bang on trend this season and it will keep you warm as toast all the way through autumn and winter.
Feasible: Form-fitting, everyday sweaters
Like I’ve said before, sweaters are not on this cursed Earth to further a fashion philosophy or agenda: they here to keep you warm when you’re going from one place to another. They’re very different animals from coats, which you might wear to a dinner party and therefore be judged on. Again, you wear a goddamn sweater when the sun goes down, the field freezes over, and Old Man Winter’s decided to challenge you. This A|X is perfect for the transit hop or trek during the cold months, and would never be considered an ugly piece by anyone’s standards.
Skiing! The puffy pristine snow, hot coco in the log cabin, exponential increases in downhill speeds: who doesn’t enjoy a trip to the mountains? We all look forward to skiing holidays (or wish we could afford them), but even though you might be taking a white vacation from the daily grind, that doesn’t mean you can to take a holiday from dressing to impress.
Feasible: Neutral colored, lightweight cardigans
Now this is something people will appreciate: nothing loud, nothing gaudy, nothing to spur images of stuffy Bostonian prep boys. Just a comfy, smooth piece. True, this piece is a little too expensive ($365 as of 1/3/10), but the price will go down as the quality remains excellent.
Feasible:Stuff from Isotope
Isotope makes a great pair of leather gloves (I used to have a pair before I left them at a movie theater – yes, I was intoxicated at the time) that never goes for more than $50. These ones, which come with a microterry lining for additional comfort I might add, are on sale (as of 11/30/09).
Oh, and readers, don’t forget about our Mad Men contest!!!
Feasible: PLAIN sweatshirts
Point is: Don’t try to make a fashion statement with your hoodie, dude – just keep it simple like with this plain Splendid Always.
