5 Must Have Casual Winter Wardrobe Essentials for Men

By October 30, 2020Guest Post

With suits staying on the hangers, ties resting in the drawers and patent leathers sticking on the shoe racks, it’s fair to say that formalwear is losing in the fashion game this year, being swapped out for a more comfortable, casual wardrobe that’s ideal for zoom calls or a social distanced trip to the park!

At Suit Direct, they aren’t just suits and tailoring – they have a huge range of men’s casualwear and laid back wardrobes, too, with key styles and top picks from bestselling brands. If you’re struggling to pick out your Autumnal style, don’t worry – Suit Direct’s Style Gurus are on the job.

Harrington Jackets

The Harrington Jacket is one of the peaks of authentic apparel, with a history dating back sixty years and a heritage of celebrities. This jacket stood for a real bad boy attitude – picked up by Steve McQueen, Elvis Presley, Oasis and more over the years, it’s a versatile, rugged style that’s just right for layering up on the milder days of Autumn and Winter, and can be mixed up with knitwear for the colder ones, too!

Our favourite Harrington jackets have to be from Ben Sherman, the original mod brand – that still keeps it in that boxy, premium cotton shape that made the jacket a legend.

Winter Coats

Suit Direct’s range of coats is bound to meet even the most discerning gent’s expectations. They have everything from puffer jackets to macs, ideal for beating the Autumn chill or those sudden winter showers – with zip fastenings, plenty of pocket space and a range of fabrics, their coats bring together prime designer labels with functionality, style, and even a cheeky spot of class…


In particular, the overcoat range is a great way to maintain a smarter aesthetic without insisting on a suit and tie, whether it’s 100% wool or something a touch more lightweight. Layer it up in style with the likes of Ben Sherman, Racing Green or Gibson London – you’ll be surprised how much an extra layer can polish up your outfit.


If you’re eager to keep the thermostat down while at home, there’s nothing wrong with layering up in knitwear, sweatshirts and more. The absolute pick of the litter for layering has to be our range of merino sweatshirts and jumpers.

Merino wool is naturally fine, soft, lightweight and insulated – perfect for chilling at home without literally chilling! With v-neck jumpers, crew neck sweaters and button up cardigans, Suit Direct’s range of merino knits will make an instant winner for your remote working repertoire.

Of course, we’re not just talking merino. Suit Direct’s cotton knits include sweatshirts, hoodies, cardigans and zip fastening jumpers, too, with brands ranging from Jeff Banks – one of the UK’s most legendary designers, and Selected Homme – our latest arrivals from the Danish specialists in minimalist, fashionable, renewable styles.

Casual Shirts

And, of course, the casual shirt is something they’ve no shortage of. The casual button up shirts range in style and prints enormously, with ginghams, checks, florals and more inspired by decades of designer expertise. Whether it’s an Oxford shirt with a button down collar, or a Stvdio button up from Jeff Banks, the shirt range is ideal for making your daily look one of individuality and flourish.

Whether you’re looking to button up in style or take on a more unique attitude to your loungewear, we’re content that Suit Direct will have something that keeps you looking your best this winter.

While we can’t be certain of what current events will throw up, we can be certain that any gent can face them well dressed and ready for anything.

Suit Direct aren’t just suits – they have something for every occasion!
