Must-Have Winter Coats for Men in 2024

After a long hot Summer, there’s something decidedly refreshing about preparing a Winter wardrobe. And whether it’s rediscovering an old favourite of a garment or making the decision to invest in something new, it’s the perfect time of year to do a bit of a clothing audit. 

For us, top of the list this Winter is curating the perfect selection of winter overcoats. However, with so many styles, shades and fabrics on the market, the process can sometimes feel a little dizzying. To address this, we’ve pulled together our picks of the perfect overcoats by occasion to help you stay warm (and stylish). 

Let’s dive in! 

Suit Overcoats

While in theory you can put most styles of coat over a suit, we’ve got strong views on which overcoats for suits look best. And the defining factor in our eyes is length. This is because the coat should create contrast with the suit jacket in order to tie the look together. Otherwise, the result can be a very top heavy silhouette, where the suit jacket and coat create significant mass around the torso which then jars with the slimmer line of the trouser. 

So, when it comes to winter coats in 2024, what are your options? We’d suggest opting for either a mid thigh or knee length overcoat in a versatile colour like navy, grey or camel. If you do feel like injecting a little bit more personality, you might also explore a fabric that subtly pulls in other colours like a tweed. 

Casual Overcoats 

You’ll be pleased to know that we have nowhere near as strict a rule when it comes to casual winter coat styles for men and that’s because casual trousers at this time of year tend to have a little bit more bulk and don’t run the risk of making you look like you have chicken legs. 

So, when it comes to choosing the right winter coat, it really is a matter of personal preference. Our picks of the season are slightly less structured styles that finish mid thigh in richly textured patterns like herringbone. These styles are equally at home over chinos and a button down as they are over jeans and a tee-shirt and make for the perfect foundational coat in any wardrobe. 

If you’re after something slightly more dramatic, our other top choice would have to be the classic double-breasted greatcoat. With echoes of the 1990s in its cut, this is a style that blends timeless tailoring cues with a more contemporary feel.
