Padded jackets, a winner all winter!
Padded jackets for men are everywhere, and it looks like they’re here to stay. They may once have been reserved for skiers and snowboarders, but they’re now the go-to jacket over a sweater
or even canvas trousers
. So let’s take a closer look at this winter’s hottest (or should we say warmest?) coat.
Whatever you need, there’s a padded jacket for you
There are two main types of men’s padded jacket available. There’s the padded, quilted style that’ll help keep the chill off, and then there’s the down-filled jackets for seriously cold weather. While more expensive, these padded jackets will give you much better insulation. So if you’ll be spending a long time out in sub-zero temperatures, then this is the coat for you. You’ll also want to think about the thickness. Currently, the trend is for thinner, lighter jackets, but these are going to give you less protection from the cold, so make sure you know what you want before you buy. Once you’ve decided on the type, it’s time to focus on the style!
A padded jacket to suit every taste
You may think that all padded jackets look the same, but variety does exist. There are hoodless jackets and removable hoods, fur-lined or basic, long or short - it all depends on your style. The same goes for the colours, from a conventional black, navy, brown or grey to a sporty red, snow white or flashy orange. So before you decide, have a look at your existing wardrobe. Are you tempted by something bright and flashy? Make sure you’ve got a more subtle, neutral coat in for more formal occasions. Finally, you’ll need to choose between a sleeveless and long-sleeved model from our budget-friendly collection, with many of them available all the way up to the largest sizes, from small to 4XL!
