Warm, yet utterly stylish – long coats for men are guaranteed to take you from day to night and are very much suitable for the office and a trip to the pub. From the classic black to a chic tan colour, here’s our must have men’s cheap coats that’ll prove that quality doesn’t always have to be expensive.

When opting for the camel, it’s always best to work your look around the colour palette of earth tones or the standard all black look.

Best Men’s Wool Coats

No matter the look you want to go for, opting for a coat which provides warmth (especially in the minus weather we’ll be seeing over Christmas) is a giver. Luckily for us this season, shearling and woollen outerwear have become the ultimate must-have, which coincidentally has made looking for a stylish coat this winter less of a struggle. For that, we’ve devised the best affordable woollen men’s coats you need.

Schott NYC Cyclone Peacoat

The peacoat is a classic jacket for any man who loves a touch of sophistication. Famously worn over a suit, it’s a city boys must have. For the season, our favourite has to be the Schott NYC Cyclone peacoat. With a lapel collar and two pockets, this is perfect for wrapping up while wearing your best.

Make sure you keep your look tidy when wearing the peacoat. While it’s a timeless staple item for any modern man, you need to make sure your look reflects the classic. For the work rush, pair the peacoat with a stand-up collar shirt and a well fitting suit. Base your colour choice on the colourway of the coat to avoid any clashes. When deciding on the right colour shirt for you, make sure to keep the tones neutral or muted, making it the perfect day-to-day outfit for every day of the week.

The Idle Man Long Line Wool Bomber

Season by season we’ve seen the bomber jacket adapt to our seasonal needs, so lucky for us, it’s adamant to stay. The woollen bomber jacket is perfect if you don’t fancy exceeding the budget. Tailored for a more comfortable look, this is ideal for when you are needing a sports-lux staple. The Idle Man Long Line Wool Bomber Jacket can be bought in both black and a tan/green colour so there’s one for everyone’s personal style.

Unlike the Nylon Bomber jackets, you can pair the jacket with your favourite knitwear. Keep your look prepped by layering with an oxford shirt and some light blue wash jeans. To make sure you’re completely ready for the cold, throw on a knitted beanie and add a scarf to finish of the look.
