You’re gonna need a bigger coat

The shortening days are a sign that it’s time to prepare your wardrobe for winter. Alex Dymoke selects five coats for the cold months ahead

Wool and tweed are not known for their lightness but this minimally structured coat sits delicately on the wearer. The relaxed, flexible feel makes it perfect for milder winters.



The hood and leather pocket lining on this wool-blend coat from Balenciaga are elegant modern additions to the classic double breasted camel. A definite winter winner.

Hardy Amies


The deep orange of this cotton trench coat provides a fresh take on a British classic. The slightly fitted cut makes it a smart option on a wintery commute, but it can also work with jeans at a gig.



The wool-blend used to make this streamlined peacoat from Korean house Wooyoungmi contains a touch of cashmere. It’s soft, luxurious and has a detachable hood for wet weather conditions.



This beautiful shearling-lined leather bomber jacket is a result of Belstaff’s collaboration with Goodwood, the racing track. Turn the collar up for warmth in freezing temperatures.
