MWD: HOW TO LAYER THIS WINTER

30.12.14

Don’t let the prospect of winter layering become a cause of sartorial confusion, and instead consider the putting together of many pieces as a chance to get the very best from your wardrobe this season. In this week’s Menswear Diaries, we show you how to take one item - the Genesis bluff detail Epsom coat - and layer it in three distinct different yet similarly stylish ways; men's winter layering never felt so effortless.

PARED-BACK

The Genesis coat’s clean lines and minimal design speak of a smart, refined aesthetic, so play to this by pairing well-chosen yet pared-back pieces in black and grey.

What to wear: the Jasper grey melange knit jumper, the Rossell black perforated brogues, the Raza black leather backpack, the Medway classic black twill chinos

SMARTEN UP

Perfect for slipping on over fine tailoring, wear the Genesis coat with a slim-fit navy suit and the season's most coveted shoe; the double-strap monk shoe.

What to wear: the Lord classic two-piece suit, the Mytton white double cuff shirt, the Rossi dark brown single monk strap shoes, the Contra bordeaux silk blend tie

CASUAL COOL

Demonstrate the Genesis coat's endless versatility by wearing with a hooded sweatshirt and laid-back brown desert boots.

What to wear: the Flame black hooded sweatshirt, the Matt brown suede desert boots, the Hines black leather holdall, the Maurice slim-fit black twill jeans
