7 Jackets for Wintery Walks
Picture the scene: you and your family are gathered, bellies bursting from Christmas dinner, enjoying the very best of Christmas Day TV when a member of your family (it’s always the same one) makes the dreaded suggestion. The Christmas Day walk! For some, a jaunt through the wintery wonderland outside is the perfect addition to an otherwise lazy and treat-filled Christmas. For others, it’s a freezing gauntlet that they’d rather submerge themselves in goose fat than endure. And, despite all of your protestations, the Christmas spirit gets you off your feet and out into the freeze anyway. Thankfully, love or hate that Christmas walk, Brother2Brother is here to help with seven stylish jackets to keep you looking sleek and feeling toasty this Christmas.
Polo Ralph Lauren – Red Faux-Fur-Trim Down Jacket
Freezing winter walks are a thing of the past with this red hot jacket from Polo Ralph Lauren. There’s no better colour to don to fight off the frost, and Ralph Lauren’s iconic polo player logo on the left breast makes sure you’re walking in style as well as in warmth. Even better, the faux-fur hood will give you the cold resistance of an arctic fox, and, since we love versatility, it’s even detachable from the jacket so you can customise your look.
Givenchy – Black/White Reversible Print Gilet
For those who love to layer, this Black/White Reversible Print Gilet by Givenchy is the perfect pairing with a hoodie or a woolly jumper. And, best of all, it’s two gilets in one! You can rock the side with sharp, angular Givenchy Paris print so that no one is ever in doubt about your sartorial credentials or, if you’re looking for a simpler look, the reverse side is plain black, with just a hint of that bright white print showing on the inside of the collar. If a full jacket has you sweating on any day, a gilet is a perfect choice.
Moncler – Beige Augert Parka Jacket
Whoever said jackets can’t be beautiful? Elegant? This beige parka from Moncler is a striking piece. The quilted design is down-filled, ensuring the very best heat retention for the sharpest of winters. The thick, luxurious fur hood is soft and comforting, as well as being detachable for ultimate versatility. Also, there’s pockets, pockets, and more pockets! You can carry a bag’s worth with you in the jacket’s four roomy pockets, two at the breast and two at the waist. And, to top it all off, Moncler’s signature patch logo is on the left sleeve, so you know where to point when everyone asks you where this gorgeous jacket came from.
True Religion – Longline Down Jacket
While some of us run so hot a gilet is the only protection we need, others are more susceptible to the bite of winter winds. This Longline Down Jacket from True Religion doesn’t just protect your upper half. The jacket’s hem plunges past the waist and carries on downwards, ensuring that, if you pull your thermal socks up high enough, there’s no part of you that won’t be unguarded on a winter walk.
Versace Jeans Couture – Graffiti Print Padded Jacket
Every family has an oddball, and if you can’t think of who it is in your family, it’s probably you. Luckily, Versace has you covered! Their Graffiti Print Padded Jacket is an eye-catching kaleidoscope of organised chaos. The retro neon graffiti print covers every inch of the jacket, making you absolutely unmissable in the grey winter gloom. The high neck and down-padded interior prove that style and comfort sometimes come together, meaning you won’t have to compromise between a unique look and warmth this winter.
Kenzo – French Blue Down Jacket
The sun might rise sluggishly in the winter months, but with this jacket, you’ll be sure to catch the light. Kenzo’s French Blue Down Jacket is an attention-grabber. It’s gleaming finish will reflect the sunlight like arctic ice as you strut your stuff through the snow. If you like to dress with the seasons, the jacket’s icy blue colour is a perfect match for a glacial ensemble.
Arctic Army – Green Classic Fur Bomber Jacket
An absolute treat for fur-lovers, this olive green bomber jacket from Arctic Army is entirely evocative of its brand. Any arctic explorer would feel safe from hypothermia if they were wearing this piece. Go to war with winter with the voluminous tuft of fur that lines the jacket’s collar and keeps you feeling flushed. And, if you’re not bored with fur yet, the interior is lined with it too! If you’re feeling particularly frostbitten this winter, this coat is the one for you!
