With so many styles to choose from, it can be hard to pick the winter coat that will see you through the colder months. After all, you want to find something that looks great, keeps you warm no matter what the weather, and works for every occasion. Stylish authorities like Esquire offer great advice on winter fashion, such as in this guide to the best coat styles of 2013, but often their recommendations are made with a luxury budget in mind.

To help you pick the right coat for you, we’ve put together this brief guide to the best coat styles to wear this winter, all of which you’ll easily find on the high street. With one of these classic coats, even the worst of the British weather won’t be able to bring you down.

The tweed overcoat:

Every man needs at least one tweed coat, whether for formal events, or just for striding around in an attempt to channel Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock-cool. A tweed coat is a great winter coat as the thick and durable fabric will easily keep you warm. Whilst tweed coats vary in length, a longer overcoat is the most practical kind for cold weather. Wear it with a shirt for drinks in the evening, or with jeans for a casual day look. But if you’re more of a suited guy, a tweed blazer can keep you warm too.

PARKA

The fur-trim, mod-style parka is still a classic of men’s fashion, and provides you with the perfect way to wrap up for winter. Go for the traditional look with this parka from Jacamo’s range of men’s winter coats. You can layer up depending on the temperature – wear over a T-shirt or shirt if it’s still mild, or with a chunky knit and scarf in the coldest winter months.

The pea coat:

The pea coat is to outerwear what Converse shoes are to footwear – a timeless classic that will see you through a huge variety of situations, year after year. If you’re not sure what kind of coat will suit you then this simple, double-breasted coat is the one to go for as it suits most men and works for both casual and smart occasions.

The duffel coat:

Bring back childhood memories with a duffel coat. This classic coat has received a modern makeover in recent years, with a slew of bright-coloured versions appearing on the high street. If bold colour isn’t for you then the traditional black or navy-blue duffel coats are still perfect for winter wear. Combine with skinny jeans and a patterned knit for a thoroughly contemporary look.

The biker jacket:

Leather has been a prominent feature in both men’s and women’s fashion this year, and the trend shows no sign of slowing down for winter. While a leather jacket isn’t as warm as other types of coat, it’s easy to layer up with a jumper or hoody underneath, and you avoid the bulk of a more traditional winter coat. Wear your leather biker jacket with jeans, boots and a sheepskin lined hoody for a cool-but-cosy winter look.
