Wanting to look your best on your travels this Winter yet still keep warm? From self-heating ski gloves to pure wool jackets, we suggest a number of must-have items for your Winter wardrobe that will keep you cosy whatever the weather – staples that’ll keep the cold at bay, but without you having to compromise on style.
These technically-advanced trekking trousers from Fjällräven come with an optimised fit and carefully-thought-through details. Made from stretch fabric with G-1000 Eco at the rear, the front of the legs and over the knees for extra durability, the rear and s are pre-shaped and have extra strong seams. The leg endings are also reinforced with extra hardwearing G-1000 HeavyDuty so they resist wear and tear from trekking boots. The seams on the inside of the legs have been moved forward to reduce the risk of chafing and zippered ventilation opening from knee to hip releases excess heat. Strap adjustments at the leg endings and, in addition to the hidden boot hook, the leg endings are equipped with eyelets to which laces or metal hooks can be attached – yet another way to fasten the trouser leg and prevent brush or snow from finding its way into boots.
When travelling, you need to carry several things on you at all times. The vast majority of regular jackets are not suited for this particular task. The Global Travel Clothing Company has built a no-nonsense travel jacket. One that has no frills or gimmicks that might sound good on paper but actually hinder its real world usefulness. This jacket will serve you well as an everyday carry or a long-term foreign travel. It has been made from a medium-weight, water-resistant nylon that breathes, and it does not require special washing and drying conditions. Carry more and worry less.
Made from 100% new wool, this jacket has an easy elegance without being too formal and looks fantastic when paired with a darker coloured chino (navy preferably). It is exceedingly smooth, soft and lightweight but maintains its shape and bounces back quickly with a light steam, meaning it’s perfect for travel and doesn’t suffer from creases when it’s wearer is seated for long periods. Available for £235 from A. Hume.
Founded in Rome in 1925 and one of the most iconic fashion brands of our time, Fendi is synonymous with elegance and a distinctive Italian aesthetic.

The Barbour helm has been crafted from 100% lambswool and finished with a false baffle liner in nylon, ideal for tackling those colder days this season. This stylish button through sweater features a ribbed knit design and tonal buttons for an added touch of style and wearability, for a sweater you are bound to love.
Heated gloves use heating elements that are some form of old resistive wire tech which can become brittle after repeated flexing, will emit heat indirectly limiting heat effectiveness, do not self-regulate, and have inherent inefficiencies that drain power fast. Chaval’s exclusive ALPHAHEAT heat tech is wildly different. To start, heat is generated by a very tough nano-polymer film that is unaffected by repeated flexing, and emits heat only directly to the hand maximizing heat effectiveness, making them the only heated gloves effective in sub-zero temperatures. ALPHAHEAT also self-regulates heat output to ensure perfect, hassle-free comfort, and was designed for optimal efficiency, achieving run times up to 3 times longer than any other brand. And power is delivered using flat flex circuit instead of fragile wire, which makes this robust heat tech wire-free.
This casually cut shirt (regular fit) from Hugo BOSS is made of finely textured jeans-look cotton and triumphs with its cool flap breast pockets. Subtly shining buttons and accent trim in the form of contrast stitching give this shirt its individual touch.
Based on an archival style designed in 1931 by Viberg‘s founder, Mr Edwin Viberg, these ‘Service’ boots are practical and well-built. They are handcrafted from supple yet strong leather in a deep merlot hue and are detailed with brogue-style perforations, sturdy brass eyelets and slip-resistant Dainite rubber soles. Make them your go-to in unpredictable weather.
Mixing luxurious, soft & breathable faux-leather with black mini ripstop at the body and sleeves sides, this biker down ski jacket from Bogner delivers a true stunner for the Winter season. It comes with zip and press-button placket, various pockets, reflecting trim and snow gaiter. A detachable hood with fur trim is an optional extra.
Torch is a prefect way to add battery-powered heat to high-end fashion coats that would otherwise not be available. It is also great for travelling because it packs easily as it is so light and compact but it also can make any outfit you pack effective for the cold. Torch has four heat settings and can last up to 5 hours on a single charge. But the biggest difference between Torch and other heated apparel products is that Torch installs in the coat you already own, and can be transferred from coat to coat. With Torch, your capabilities are endless and the cold never stands a chance.
