With so many months in the great white north spent braving the elements and fighting off hypothermia, a warm jacket is the foundation of the well-dressed man’s wardrobe in winter. Whether your style is classic or fashionably fresh, the winter jacket is your first chance to make a solid sartorial impression. Protect yourself against the cold and stay stylish with these three rules:
1. The perfect fit is key. The jacket shoulders should be aligned with yours to keep a sleek tailored look.
2. The art of layering should always be a factor of fit. Allow room for a fist under the jacket behind the top bottom.
3. The sleeve length should meet the bottom third of your palm to ensure the layers underneath stay hidden and protected from elements.
