With shorts and sandals behind us it’s time to grab your men’s coat as winter is finally here. Are we the only ones to celebrate this fact? Think about it. No more inventing ways to hide our dad bods under slowly shrinking short-sleeve shirts. No more futile hours, vainly chasing rays desperately trying to tan our pale, vampirish pins. Finally, we can relax worrying about whether we’re making the most of the 8 weeks of sun we get here in Britain.
Summer is hot and stifling; winter is snug and cosy. Summer is salads and water; winter is pies and ale. Yes, the weather is worse, but the potential rewards are also far more. Farewell to fair-weather hikers, hello to trails emptied of tourists. Our wild open spaces are ready for the taking; and all it takes is the right men’s winter coat.
It’s not just our parks that are ripe for the picking, it’s our towns too. So often we see jacket shaped garments; limp layers which wouldn’t stand up in a stiff breeze. Imagine men’s waterproof jackets, men’s insulated jackets, men’s parka jackets, and men’s 3-in-1 jackets; functional and practical pieces beyond fast-fashion and equally at home, navigating the Christmas shopping and the fells of the Lake District.
Yes the summer is behind us but let’s not forget there are 3 other seasons to choose from. Each one with its own challenges and opportunities. Make the most of these underrated seasons with your key to the outdoors right here on our digital shelves.
When you’re facing the elements, do it in style. At Blacks we offer a comprehensive range of Men’s Jackets, Outdoor Coats and Waterproof Jackets, and we handpick each item based on practicality, style and performance.
