Military shades of khaki and navy meet up with dazzlingly bright primaries on men's down jackets, designed to keep you warm in high-fashion style. From modern parka updates to ultra-thin, ultra-warm styles, these jackets are crafted to beat the elements.
The wondrous insulating property of fine down has been known to mankind forever, but new advances in water-repellent technology allowing down jackets to be waterproofed, has seen a new surge of fashionable and functional styles hit the catwalks and high streets. These men's down jackets really are the modern winter coat. Minimalist quilted designs are outdoor and city all-rounders, looking just as good over a pinstripe suit as out in the country with cords and walking boots. For real versatility choose squishy designs that squeeze into messenger bags or backpacks when not needed.
Ultra-thin men's down jackets in utility styles do away with quilting to give sleeker looks. Team neutral designs with chinos and office brogues when you're out and about for business on weekdays, then wear for weekend evenings over casual shirts and v-neck jumpers. Although not overly bulky, the high down content of these sleek designs is still tough enough for outdoor hikes, especially if topping chunky polo necks and thermal base layers. If you're a fan of gilets but the weather still calls for sleeves, opt for down jackets with quilted torsos and smooth arms. Subtly striped elasticated cuffs, waists and necklines give it a bomber look that styles well over sweatshirts or varsity hoodies.
