Winter is coming… well Autumn.
Here in the UK, and most of Europe we know cold weather, rain, rain and more rain is on it’s way. So it’s time we start preparing, say goodbye to impulsive coat and garish jumper buying.
Firstly every man woman, child… and dog..? Needs a pair ( or two pairs if you’re a dog) of hardwearing ,waterproof, mud proof, life proof, boots. An everyday pair and a smart pair usually works.
Dr Martens, 1460 FORLIFE boot.
Dr Marten boots are the ultimate hardwearing boot, and they have a 1460 boot with a lifetime guarantee… AMAZING. Their leather is saturated with water resistant oils and waxes, the laces have metal tips and they throw in Balm to keep them in tip top shape, but if anything still happens to them they will either repair or replace them… and for a reasonable price of £165 http://www.drmartens.com/uk/p/13366601
Trickers, Stow Country Boot.
Trickers have been making footwear since 1829, and have always been known for their high quality durability and comfort, so naturally it would appear on this list. There are so many options and can even get a bespoke pair made. Our favourite is the Stow Country boot, theres a range of colours to choose from and you choose a leather sole or a Dainite sole. A great boot when you don’t want to compromise style over practicality and they’ll last years. £390 http://www.trickers.com/mens/country-boots/stow-acorn-heavy-brogue-boot.html
There’s nothing worse than realising you have made a bad coat/ jacket choice. So when you are absolutely freezing, but you refuse to admit that the suede leather jacket was the worse decision you’ve ever made, and it rains sideways and people start to wonder whether you are crazy, don’t blame us because here are some great options to avoid soggy clothes and regret. Theres an everyday option and a smarter option for when rocking up meetings requires something a bit fancy.
Barbour, Hooded Waterproof Bedale Jacket.
This is a waterproof version of their classic Bedale waxed jacket, great if you aren’t a fan of wax, as the smell can be bit too much sometimes. You can add a liner if the weather takes a turn for the worst, and if you jacket needs repairing they can help with that!
If you want a wax jacket then the Bedale is great, and comes in more colours than the waterproof. You can machine wash the Waterproof unlike the Wax version. £279
Burberry, Wool Cashmere Trench Coat.
This coat comes in three colours, it’s a wool and cashmere blend, perfect for the daily commute. It might be a little pricey but its a classic design that will never really age and will look good with just about anything. You’ll be wearing this coat for years. £1,295
These accessories will make autumn and the onset of winter far more bearable, and hopefully you’ll look good doing it too!
Herschel, Little America Backpack
Cool, stylish and functional.
Has a built in laptop section.
COS, Cashmere Hat
A slightly oversized Cashmere hat can be worn folded over or loose.
Lifeproof, Nüüd phone case
You are probably wondering why there is a phone case on this list, well this phone case will prepare you for any weather event, rain, sleet, snow, rain more rain and well even more rain… It’s waterproof, snow proof, dirt proof and even drop proof. Replying to messages in wind and rain is now possible and can even catch all the Pokémon.
And if you can’t face the outdoor world and life in general… then you probably need this…

Which is available to pre order on Amazon, and has 30 built in games, perfect for hibernating.
