The winter jacket you need now
12 December 2018
When it comes to outerwear, the sheer number of options available for us to pick from can make the simple act of choosing a jacket to wear a seemingly impossible task. Season after season, new trends land on our screens and – let’s face it – it can be hard to keep up. Our advice? Stick to what has come before you. Classics are classics for a reason: they are tried and tested, brilliant pieces of clothing that have been worn by men all over the world for decades. And when it comes to keeping on top of your style game for winter, there’s nothing that’ll prove your sartorial credentials quite like the classic shearling jacket.
Shearling – aka sheepskin – jackets have been a constant in men's fashion for decades, first made fashionable by the American and European pilots who took to the skies in their shearling-lined bomber jackets during World War II. After that, it was donned by style icons such as Steve McQueen, Alain Delon and Sylvester Stallone in the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties respectively and has continued to be at the forefront of menswear ever since.
The beauty of a shearling jacket is tenfold, but it starts and ends with the fact that it genuinely looks good throughout all walks of life, no matter what it’s paired with. A slim-fit suit; jeans and a roll neck; your best tailored trousers and a shirt: name it, and we guarantee it’ll pair perfectly with shearling. Our bestselling iteration is a modern take on the classic, made externally with real leather instead of sheepskin but retaining the timeless collar (made with real shearling) that made the jacket so famous. The faux-fur lining on the inside is guaranteed to keep you warm, dry and wondering why it’s taken you so long to give shearling a go.
