Gents’ Top 5 Cold Weather Essentials Hit List

The temperature continues to drop, and we continue to pile on the layers. That outer layer becomes more and more important. Make sure you are covered with your key piece – your coat – and all the necessary accessories to get through these next few months in style and comfort. What’s that mean? Having the right scarf, hat, gloves, and boots, to go with that important coat or jacket. This week, we talk about these key categories in our Clothes & Conversation, "Style + Function Rolled in to 5 Cold Weather Necessities".
Have a better idea of what you’re now looking for now? Here are a few options for each must-have. Choose the one (or two, or three) that works best for you. And let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media.

When you have to get to a formal business meeting or evening event and it’s downright cold out, a warm dress top coat is a must. This wool/cashmere blend from Hugo Boss has a classic single-breasted button front with an all important throatlatch button closure to keep the cold off your neck. The charcoal grey color will work with all of your navy, grey, black and olive suits and sport coats – as well as any scarf, and black or brown gloves. The fit is great for most gents and the length is modern and updated. If you have to go out in the cold, you might as well look good.

Victorinox Swiss Army® - Torre Water Repellent Thermore® Insulated Wool Blend Hooded Parka
1. The Coat/Jacket: From Victorinox Swiss Army, this hooded, wool blend parka with nylon trim has a water repellant outer shell and is insulated with Thermore® Eco fill for incredible warmth. The closure has both a zip and snap to keep you warm and dry. It even works well over your suit coat for those nasty workdays – though, of course, it’s great for a casual day, too. The black color works with everything, and if this winter is anything like the last, that’s what you need.

From J. Crew, this modern take on vintage military parka is a great jacket for weekend walks in the park or errand runs. The outer shell is a cotton blend, and it is lined in Sherpa for warmth – right up into the hood, which is a great touch. The masculine fatigue color is perfect with a plaid scarf and all your weekend casual clothes – jeans, flat front cotton pants, sweat pants. Complete the looks with a pattern flannel shirt or a favorite sweatshirt.

When it comes to protecting us from the elements, Canada Goose simply know what they are doing. This ripstop nylon puffer is water resistant, wind proof and is filled with 750 grams of white goose down, enough to keep you warm at the base camp in the Himalayas. So that should work for most us, right? It has a chin guard, draw cord closures at the hem and collar and a 2-way zipper for easy sitting. The bright blue color looks great with any jeans or neutral pants, and you won’t have to worry about getting lost in a snowstorm or a crowded football stadium.

While we usually think about bulky jackets for the cold weather, a coat that can work as a crucial outer layer is sometimes just the thing. This casual trench coat style from J. McLaughlin is made of coated cotton to shed the rain and snow. It has a zip and button front closure to help keep body warmth in and the wind and rain out. Since it’s unlined, it’s ideal to wear over layers – anything from a sweater to a down vest, depending on the conditions. The navy we’re showing works nicely over a suit or sport coat, as well as outfits that are business casual.

2. The Scarf: The luxury feel of the merino and yak wool, along with a reversible design, gives this Theory scarf that amazing versatility we are always looking for. The solid textured side works beautifully with a topcoat, while the black, blue, and grey stripe is great for a casual jacket. You can’t go wrong either way.

Begg’s reversible olive/charcoal wool and angora blend scarf is a subtle statement to wear with your grey and black coats and jackets. Since each side is solid in color (one, olive, and the other, charcoal), it looks great when you naturally tie it around your neck, exposing both colors (as shown). Begg has been making the world’s finest wool scarves in Scotland for 145 years, so this one is going to last.

3. The Hat: As we talked about in Clothes & Conversations this week, there are several style hats to help us gents get through the cold days of winter. The trapper style is one of the classics. This one from Barbour is a top pick for its waxed cotton and fleece lining. It will keep you warm and dry in all conditions, while the slightly faded black color will go with all your coats and jackets.

The ultimate in a dress fedora is this fur felt from Christys’ London. It is absolutely amazing. The hat is handmade in Oxfordshire, England. It features all the quality details of a fine hat and is foldable for easy carrying when traveling. We’re showing the olive, which is great with a camel topcoat, and it comes in classic black, as well. Christys’ has been making hats since 1773 and is the world’s largest hat maker. It is worth every penny – you only get one chance to make a first impression, and this is going to make it a good one.

Patagonia is known for their technical gear, and they are one of the best. Every year, they come out with new versions of their merino wool/nylon knit beanies that are just made for collecting. They have a fleece lining that keeps you warm and is so soft against your head. While they are made for skiing, we’ll wear these anytime. And they’re easy to stash in your pocket, so you’ll always be prepared for a temperature drop. This style comes in a few other great neutrals, and you can see the whole assortment here - we recommend stocking up.

A baseball cap is a gent’s best friend, so when Gents (the brand) made a wool blend version for those colder days, we were all in. It’s the perfect winter cap for all of your casual jackets, whether you go with the grey we’re suggesting, or the black. Either way, you’ll keep warm while lookin’ good.

4. The Gloves: It is no fun having cold, chapped hands. So, we do all we can to avoid that with the right gloves. Knowing how warm a shearling coat is, these Spanish sheepskin shearling gloves from UGG® Australia are every bit as warm. The inverted seaming is so classic, especially in the chestnut tan we’re highlighting, but the chocolate brown is a deep rich color, if you prefer something darker. Both work with brown, black, or navy.

Function and style are rolled into one, with these leather driving gloves from Polo Ralph Lauren. They have a rugged diamond quilted pattern with a leather strap snap closure to mimic a classic driving glove. But they are lined in lambswool for that much needed warmth. They come in black and brown so you can pick the color that works best with your coat.

These wool blend gloves from Bickley + Mitchell are another, more casual way, to merge fashion and function. We are drawn to the great navy mélange color and contrasting tan faux-leather palms – in the rain and snow, faux leather is so practical. Bickley + Mitchell is an Amsterdam based company specializing in creatively stylish knitwear, and we’d say that’s pretty evident here.

Being out in the cold doesn’t stop the phone from ringing (or all the other things our phones do these days). That’s not an issue with these ‘eTip’ gloves from The North Face. Not only will you be able to use your touchscreen devices, the gloves are made from waterproof material that is seriously warm, too. We’re showing the grey/black colorway, and it also comes in a versatile all black that is our recommendation. No matter what Mother Nature is handing you, your hands will be ready to accept it – you’ll even be able to take pictures of it. (We can’t say the same for your phone though, so be careful.)

5. The Boots: When we’re looking for a boot designed to handle the worst winter has to offer, we’re going to go with a classic – from UGG® Australia, of course. This boot is going to get you through it all. The leather outer is waterproof. It is lined with a waterproof, breathable shearling and has a removable sheepskin sock liner. It has a Vibram® sole – the world’s leader in high performance rubber soles. The Worchester/chestnut color we’re showing will look rugged with your jeans, but it comes in a neutral black and a grey, as well.

The classic “duck boot” is a winter staple for trudging around in the snow. We like this version from Sperry Top-Sider. It has all the important details – rubber lower shell, waterproof leather upper, contrast fleece lining, lug soles and leather laces – at an attractive price. Ever wonder why it’s called a duck boot? Duck feathers can just shake off the water, and so will these.

This is a great boot you can wear to get yourself to the office, and then keep it on all day. The leather on these Timberlands is waterproof, the seams are sealed and sole is lugged for traction – that will get you to work. The rich brown burnished nubuck leather and chukka boot styling looks good with your khaki’s and dark jeans – that will keep you at work, with dry feet.

Sometimes, you are more concerned with protection from slush and rain than truly cold temperatures. When it’s one of those days, look no further than these waterproof boots from Tretorn. The upper is PVC-free rubber. It has a micro fleece lining and an eco OrthroLite insert for comfort. The tire-like rubber outsole is great for solid traction. We also like the reflective detail on the heel and sole – it gets dark earlier and earlier these days. The black with citron green is our favorite, but a more neutral classic olive or dark brown is also offered.
