This season, wander over to the tougher side of heritage looks with layers of fair-isle knits, military-inspired coats and lumberjack checks. Military influences meet trucker styling in this easy-wear layered casual look that will get you through even the coldest of winter days.
All that’s old is new again with vintage-inspired fair-isle knits taking centre stage as a winter must-have – layer over your print shirts and wear back with straight leg denim and boots for an easy day look. If you prefer something a little more understated, then stick with knits but go for shades of grey and charcoal and avoid anything bright.
Keep the warmth in while it gets colder outside with a cargo jacket in traditional khaki. Ideal for casual wear with jeans, navy cords and chinos, the cargo jacket will be your easy style update piece for winter. Opt for a style that sits just below the hips, has a built in hood and plenty of room in the arms. This will ensure even the chunkiest of knits and layered shirts will fit comfortably in the sleeves.

Take your cue from lumberjack styling this season and revamp the check shirt for a cool urban look. Keep it casual, textural (don’t be afraid of flannelette) and give it some style love by layering over vintage inspired tees or under a puffer vest. Pack your summery pastel prints away and look out for classic winter colours like blues and greys. Ensure the fit is right and you’ll find the check shirt will quickly become your high rotation piece. Retro trainers will finish off your look but if you’re not really a sneaker kind of guy, try the military lace up boot for a tougher look. Wear with your jeans casually scrunched down into the tops of the boots (no tucking in here thanks!).
