Every man wants a jacket that will not only keep them warm but will also provide them with style throughout the day. For a lot of men they tend to care what they wear and without admitting it, tend to be rather ‘picky’.

Now, this is the perfect place to start! Even without trying on this Parka jacket from Pelle, it already makes you feel a little warm inside, doesn’t it? With the current circumstances of lockdown, it is always hard to imagine why you would need a coat as we constantly feel as if we are stuck indoors. However, now that most of us have taken up daily walks just to get out of the house for a little bit. Now is actually the perfect time, especially after experiencing below-freezing weather conditions and even the bit of snow we got to enjoy over the weekend. 


Next up is the Holebrook Classic Half Zip



This one is definitely for all those men that don’t necessarily like wearing coats but at the same time, would like to remain warm and cosy.

This Christmas will be like no other and after the year that everyone has had, it makes it that extra bit special to get the perfect gifts. Everyone wants to lift the mood of their partners, friends and family members. That is why we have written this blog to help you select the ideal gifts that work for everyone.


Let’s face it, we have all bought presents for our friends or family members knowingly full well that they have not worn that item. In most cases, it is pretending to like the shirt or any particular item of clothing even if we know in ourselves that we will not wear it. Instead, it just sits in the wardrobe never to be worn again.


However, the items selected in this are not just any clothes. These clothing items for men is something to get excited about as the men in your life will truly be grateful for these items. Instead of sitting in the wardrobe all year round, this will be the one they can’t take off. That is a fact.


Our first selection is the Tommy Hilfiger Corduroy Shirt



Now, this is obvious why this has made the selection, it is plain to suit everyone’s needs. Not only that, but it can be worn all year round and can help mix up your outfit. Whether you want to wear it to a formal event or relax in it over the weekend. The choice is completely yours.


Tommy Hilfiger Fur Lined Zip Hoody

The Tommy Hilfiger Fur Lined Hoody is a great selection for Christmas. Especially as the weather gets colder around this time of year. So what better way to wrap up warm than with a fur-lined hoody. Providing an ever-lasting style, boosting all-day comfort and can be worn all year round.


Colours & Sons Winter Check Shirt

Everyone needs at least one or more shirt for Christmas. That is why we have selected our Colours & Sons Winter Check Shirt as one of our next big things for Christmas clothes. Not only do the colours work very well together but it is also produced using soft flannel to provide comfort. Can be worn with many combinations such as with trousers, in the office or even wear it with a printed t-shirt.


Pelle Urbis Jacket

The Pelle Urbis Jacket is a very unique jacket to buy your partner or family member this Christmas. With only select-few stores actually offering this brand you can be sure that they will be one of the only people to be wearing this jacket. Being unique is something we all dream about. As a man myself I know first hand that we always want to buy things that others may or may not have so we can stand out more. This jacket is a perfect example of this. It also has a detachable hood so it can be used all year round. As if it couldn’t get any better.


Viyella Gift Boxed Check Shirts

Our last next big thing in Christmas clothes for men has to be the one and only Viyella Gift Boxed Check Shirts. I mean, you know they are special shirts when they come in a gift box. It’s like it was actually designed to be a gift to someone special. It comes in different colours so you can match it to that special someone’s personality.

Throughout this blog, we will give you reasons on why shopping for end of line stock is actually the perfect place to shop.


For a lot of people, they may see the end of line stock as something that is no longer ‘in fashion’ but I am here to tell you that is not the case.


To be completely honest, I don’t know why you wouldn’t buy anything from the end of line stock. The majority of the clothing is still a great addition to your wardrobe and you get it for cheaper than the original price. I mean, what is not to love about that.


If you are like anyone else, then I know for a fact that you enjoy grabbing yourself a bargain. Don’t we all. So why not browse the end of line stock and get the bargain you deserve.


When you find a store like us that sell top brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Fynch Hatton, GANT, Ralph Lauren and much more. We understand that sometimes the pricing may be a little out of your budget and so the best thing to do in these situations. That’s right, you’ve guessed it, simply wait for it to reach the end of line stock so you can not only get it for cheaper but you also get to look and feel good about your purchase.


Another good reason to shop at the end of line stock, if you are a bargain hunter like myself. Is to use this section of the stores to browse for clothes ready for the next season. For example, you will find that the best time to get Summer clothes is usually between September and October.


Why is this?


This is because a lot of stores want to sell all of their summer wear before the end of the year, which is great news for everyone. As this allows you to pick up great bargains and show them off when the time comes whilst the shop get to flog the merchandise. It is truly a win-win for all parties.


Most men would much prefer to go on holiday during the quieter seasons to avoid lots of children running around whilst they try to enjoy the peace and quiet. Am I right? So what I am trying to tell you is, why not wait for the end of the stock sale. You could pretty much do your whole holiday shop for at least half the price.


This also applies to the colder seasons, if you are looking to get warmer clothing, why not buy it in Summer when these items tend to be cheaper. This way you can get more for your money and who knows, you could save the additional pennies for another holiday. God knows we will need it after this Global pandemic.

Tommy Hilfiger Chinos | Davids Of Haslemere


Now we have decided on a jacket to keep the top half warm, it was only fitting that we went with these trousers.


Offering a simple yet elegant look to your outfit. They are versatile, comfortable and an all-round steal. More of a slim fitting to qualify for a smart-casual look with a branded finish.


Easily a wardrobe favourite and go-to trousers as they can be worn with brogues or trainers. I mean, how many trousers do you know of that allow you to do such a thing.


Wear them throughout the week for the office or even on the weekend for a more relaxed look.


Personally, it is a no brainer! Whether you buy them for yourself or as a gift to someone. There will be no disappointment with both parties. Although we can’t promise that you might get jealous and wish you bought a pair for yourself.


Lastly,  our final pick from the men’s winter fashion is the Fynch Hatton Rollneck Interlock


Would it be a true reflection of men’s winter fashion if it didn’t feature a rollback jumper? I doubt it.


This rollback from Fynch Hatton is soft to touch, easy to pull off and an all-round solid purchase. Keeping the neck warm is important so you don’t get shivers down your spine.


A versatile jumper that can be worn to both the office and on those off-duty days. Worn for all occasions but perfect for the colder seasons.


Nothing helps you get through winter more than feeling cosy and warm. Especially if you are being dragged around the shops with your family or even off to watch your children participate in sports or activities.

The American designer Tommy Hilfiger began in the ’80s, initially only for men. The brands signature use of classic red, white and blue recreated old styles and trends worn by the masses, and it brought the retro style back into the limelight.

The Gant brand was born in 1949 in New Haven Connecticut as a family run business. Initially making shirts, Gant was innovative in the introduction of the locker Loop, the box pleat, the back collar button and the button tab. These details are still unanimous today with the Gant shirt. Gant became an American Iconic label transforming the ordinary white shirt into colour and stripes, the birth of the Oxford shirt. Gant was known as a sportswear label and in the early 70’s they produced their first American sportswear collection.
