Cold season is that time of year were most people would just like to stay indoors in front of an open fire with a mug of hot chocolate. But for the business man battling the elements on route to work. In this article we explore the best cold season outfits for men to wear at job/office and how today’s business man can look the part in the office at the same time as wrapping up warm.
It goes without saying that this item of clothing is essential during cold periods but what style is perfect for the modern business man?
In this case, a long woolen overcoat is highly suitable and makes a business man look much more distinguished. What better fabric to have than wool? A pure wool overcoat is much more durable than any blend of fabric so will not only look the part but will last you many years. Even though you pay for quality, it will save you a fortune in the long run. There are different styles of wool overcoats, the most obvious being single or double breasted. Keep in mind that a double breasted coat may be weighty but will keep you warmer in the cold weather. It is a must that any overcoat for a business man must cover the cuffs of shirt and suit jacket. Cuffs showing under an overcoat look scruffy and clearly show you have chosen a coat which does not fit properly. Ideally these coats should be knee length or preferably lower.
Seeing as the weather outside is a bit on the chilly side, why not be daring and venture into the three-piece suit empire? Not only do these make a business man look exceedingly spruce, but they will keep you that extra bit warmer while in the office. Make sure your three-piece is matching. An odd waistcoat with a different suit can look sloppy. Instead of plain black grey suits why not go for a nice charcoal pinstripe which are great for slimming the figure as well as keeping that sophisticated image.
Shoes and Accessories
Shoes must still be perfect and appropriately polished. During the cold period it may be more suitable to attain a pair of ankle boots. These, under trousers, give the illusion of a smartly prepared business shoe but will also keep your feet warm and dry. No business man’s outfit is complete without the leather gloves and token scarf. Long scarves are smart but casual. However it is much more acceptable to choose a scarf of a darker colour such as maroon or emerald. Bright coloured scarves for a business man will not do you any favours and will definitely give people the feeling of amateur.
