Winter wardrobe update: The great cover-up

With winter on our doorstep, people will be looking for new sources of heat to keep warm in style. Lucky for them, the Muratti Man is ready to raise the fashion stakes with our collection of stylish finish casual jackets perfect for layering and making sure that you're the centre of attention.
First up:

A favourite go-to, which works well, whatever the setting. Trying to keep the cold out? Try it over a knit or a sweater. Trying to make an impression? Dress it down over a cotton T-shirt for a modern look that still says you got it.

Following close behind:

This season’s must-have, mainly for its versatility and lightness, which still keep the cold at bay. How about pairing it with a sweater, a straight leg everyday essential chino and some brogue boots for a start. You can even decide how snug you want it to go, with stretch cuffs if you want to keep the heat in and a looser fit if you’re going more for ‘the look’.

Going down the list, now we stumble upon the crowd favourite:

The leather and denim jacket. An essential for any man’s wardrobe, always ready to add that finishing touch to your casual weekend get up or add on to your smart look for that little bit of edge. As for the denim jacket, get it in a classic wash with stud buttons and wear it loose or buttoned up. Finish both off with some white court shoes and you’re good to go.

The puffer’s not-so-distant cousin:

Light, versatile, easy to move in but covering a little bit more ground. It’s the perfect alternative for a coat with a fish-tail at the back that allows for easy movement. Not forgetting the number of pockets for extra storage.

The grand finale is:

The very definition of elegance, simply because it heightens any and every look. Lift your denim and chinos to a level of greatness with a plain jacket or get it in checks or patterned for that office do.
