Staying Warm \u0026amp; Breathable\nOne of the best things about layering is that if you get too hot, you can simply remove a layer or two to stay comfortable. This is why we recommend layering thin to thick in terms of clothing and fabrics. So, your outer layers such as jackets and coats will be thicker, while your inner layers like a polo or long sleeve shirt will be thinner.\nThe majority of GAZMAN’s winter collection is made from premium merino wool, cotton or a woollen blend. A great option for the office is a classic V neck vest worn over a business shirt. Vests are both lightweight and breathable, composed of an extra fine Australian merino wool. For the outdoors, style a pair of jeans and your favourite trainers with our water-resistant, fleece lined walking jacket.\n \n \nBase Layers\nIn addition to looking stylish, each layer of your outfit should be comfortable – starting with the base. Base layers sit the closest to your skin and therefore must be lightweight and breathable. We recommend starting all winter looks with a casual pair of pants, paired back with a basic undershirt, t-shirt, Henley, or Oxford shirt for more smarter occasions. We then suggest layering with a lightweight crew neck knit and jacket, however, you can omit the jacket if you live in a milder climate.\n \n \nMixing Colours \u0026amp; Patterns\nTo avoid looking monochromatic, incorporating colours, patterns and textures into your layers will add interest and compliment a neutral palette. For a more subtle yet sophisticated look, patterned shirts should be worn underneath simple jumpers and jackets. For example, our brushed twill shirts, made from thick cotton, layer perfectly under a half-zip knit for a pop of colour. Wear this with tan chinos and a contrasting puffer vest for extra warmth. We also recommend experimenting with different fabrics and textures for each layer, which can be achieved with knitwear and textured weaves.\n \n \nOutdoor vs Indoor Layering\n The key difference between outdoor and indoor layering sits with the third layer of clothing, often an outerwear piece such as a vest or jacket. As a general rule of thumb, your layered winter outfit should not consist of more than three layers when you’re outdoors, to avoid looking too bulky. If you’re still cold with three layers outside, you might want to consider purchasing a higher quality jacket or vest. Our puffer vests are an essential winter piece, ideal for outdoor layering that can be easily slipped off as soon as you walk indoors. Made with a premium thermal filling, GAZMAN’s puffer vests are extremely warm, breathable, lightweight and retain body heat.\n \n \nWinter Accessories\nThe final step to layering any winter outfit is the accessories, that serve both a functional and aesthetic purpose. A wool scarf is an essential winter accessory, that can elevate any casual outfit. Whether you wear it hanging loose or wrapped around your neck, a scarf will work with almost any ensemble. Scarves are also a great way to add a pop of colour or pattern into a neutral or dark-toned outfit. For those brisk winter commutes, beanies are also a practical winter accessory and a great wardrobe staple. When choosing a beanie, opt for a simple style in dark tones such as navy, grey or black.\n \n \nGet winter-ready with the latest men’s winter clothing \u0026amp; accessories at GAZMAN.
