Winter is here and it’s the best time for us boys to glow up and show off our best and warmest looks. But where to start? There are so many options that choosing might seem a monumental task. Lucky for you, we’re here to take the guesswork out choosing. Let’s take a look at what the best jumpers & jackets are for winter 2022.
A Cable Knit Jumper
This is essential for those boys who don’t want to dress up too much but still want to look good. Cable knit jumpers are the perfect way to dress up an outfit without much effort. The best part is that they’re versatile. You could wear these with trackies, jeans, chinos, or dress pants. You can even wear whatever shoes you like depending on what the occasion is.
Gant cotton cable crew neck jumper – $199 AUD available at The Iconic.
This style is probably the most versatile of the bunch. You could pair this with basically anything. It is on the pricier side but if you can afford it, this is a great pick.
Uniqlo U Low Gauge Mock Neck Long Sleeve Sweater – $59 – $49 AUD available at Uniqlo.
For those with a tighter budget, Uniqlo do great cable knit (sort of) jumpers. They’re warm and you’re not sacrificing much quality going for this option. There are also a tonne of colour choices so if you felt like stocking up you could pick one of each.
If you aren’t one of those guys that can wear shorts in winter and don’t want to buy a puffer jacket, the a sherpa jacket is for you. Incredibly warm and casually stylish. This is for those who care what they look like but don’t want anyone else to know.
Patagonia Classic Retro-X Jacket – $299 available at Patagonia.
Considering this is a retro look, the retro-inspired jacket from Patagonia is perfect, and speaking from experience, it’s incredibly warm. Pair this with trackies or jeans, some nice sneakers and you’re sorted. The jacket does all the heavy lifting for you.
Common Need Grizzly Sherpa Jacket Wavy Chocolate – $130 available at Universal.
You don’t have to break the budget to be warm, so Common Need have given us a funky alternative. Cozy but it still allows you to express yourself if you’re the eccentric type.
A leather jacket never goes out of style. Even if your uncle Tony wears one. you can dress it up or down, but it does succeed best in casual and smart casual situations. Pair it with boots or sneakers or maybe even something in between. Jeans are an easy pairing but remember if you wear blue jeans you might risk looking like a cast member of Grease.
Allsaints Milo Biker – $659 available a Myer.
You’d be surprised how versatile biker jacket can be. You can wear it just with a t-shirt but it’s great for layering. Try it with a turtleneck or, as you can see in the picture provided, with a hoodie.
Merla Moto Duke Leather Jacket – $599.95 available at Merla Moto.
If you aren’t into how loud biker jackets can be but still love the leather look, then consider this piece from Merla Moto. You get all the good stuff about a leather jacket without the huge collar.
A Cozy Cardigan
Working from home or maybe just attending a gathering, then a cardigan might just be for you. It’s a casual style that with the right care can be dressed up for a night out, but maybe not to the nicest club you know.
Tommy Hilfiger Stripe Intarsia Logo V-Neck Cardigan – $189 available at Glue.
For a relaxed look for our fellow hypebeasts Tommy Hilfiger has you covered. You can pair this with virtually anything and it will work. A slouchy look for those days you don’t feel like dressing up too much.
Country Road Australian Lambswool Waffle Shawl Cardigan – $159 available at Country Road.
Labels don’t mean much to you? Then check this one out. Perfect for that cozy cottagecore look. Pair it with earth tones and black and you’ve got yourself a look.
A Solid Overcoat
Every man needs a good overcoat. It is a winter staple and thankfully there are heaps of styles and options available. Here are two that I think will make your overcoat stand out.
Rodd & Gunn Archers Coat – $499 available at Rodd & Gunn.
What I love about this is the collar. The rest is standard and simple overcoat fare, but it’s that collar, that damn collar. Elevate your winter stylishly with this one.
Oxford Mason Wool Rich Overcoat – $332-$499 available via David Jones.
This is a more traditional overcoat but what separates it is the slouchy cut of it. If your after something a little more relaxed whilst still being dressed up than something like this will do perfectly.
Every second person in Australia has a puffer jacket. I understand why, they’re warm, lightweight, and easy to style. It also doesn’t look like they’re going away anytime soon either, so instead of going for a North Face puffer jacket, let’s look at some other options.
Uniqlo Men +J Down Oversized Coat – $249 – $299 available at Uniqlo.
If you really want to step outside the box then this oversize down jacket is for you. It might not be as easy to transport as regular puffer jackets but you’ll be incredibly warm. It’s not for everyone but it certainly will have people looking twice.
Superdry Alpine Luxe Down Jacket – $299 available at Superdry.
You have to be careful with shiny puffer jackets to avoid looking like you’re wearing a garbage bag. This one from Superdry rides the line quite well but I’ve seen some from Tommy Hilfiger that might be too shiny. If you aren’t into strange cuts then this might be for you.
