As we scrapped ice off our windscreens this morning, or made the treacherous walk down the hilly street in unsuitable shoes, it is clear, that despite the insistence of stores that have started to stock Spring/ Summer attire, we are still truly in the depths of winter. It has not been a terrible or memorable Winter, but that does not make any difference when we are bundling up or arming ourselves with cold and flu remedies. Luckily, there are a few key items that will see you through the Winter, so that you can emerge come April, new, fresh and ready to wear short shorts and flip flops.
Tails Clothing have a brilliant selection of pieces that will keep you warm, but will also keep you looking your stylish self. Here is my pick of just a few of the products on the site that are winter style essentials:
If there is one winter style essential, it must surely be a good coat. A peacoat is a style classic and a staple in any man’s wardrobe. The Pavois navy peacoat from Saint James Clothing is a versatile item that can be dressed up or down and is made from heavy weight melton cloth and features a double thickness collar.
As something of a knitwear obsessive, I love being able to get my hands on as many great jumpers as I possibly can in the Winter months. Tails have a great selection of knitwear. My two favorite items are the navy Norwegian jumper from Norlender Knitwear which has a really distinctive navy and white dogtooth pattern, and the Breton jumper from Saint James which is a great, lighter jumper that can be worn in the time between seasons too. Both jumpers are 100% wool.
A great pair of all weather shoes are a great investment for those that live in the UK. These Cambridge derby boots from Alfred Sargent & Sons have been created in soft pebble grain calf leather and will look great with selvedge denim.
Top the winter look off with a beanie hat. This knitted navy hat from Saint James, made from chunky wool and will keep your head and ears warm.
