With November around the corner, the weather has developed a sudden nip in the air. So the time has come to invest in a winter coat to see you through the dark cold days and nights. With so much choice available, we thought we could narrow it down for you to 4 styles from the GANT new winter collection you may not have considered.

1. The GANT Varsity Jacket 

A good alternative to going full length too early in the season. Varsity jackets have gone from oversized US college wear to street style staple. The mens GANT Varsity Jacket combines smart functionality in a statement piece. It is perfect to wear over a sweater or t-shirt. HeraldScotland: The GANT Varsity JacketThe GANT Varsity Jacket

The varsity jacket is sure to be a great flexible addition to both male and female wardrobes for weekend wear.HeraldScotland: The Padded GANT Varsity JacketThe Padded GANT Varsity Jacket

2. The Puffer Jacket  

As the weather gets a bit colder, and the nights a bit darker then a puffer jacket is a necessity for all wardrobes. Maybe you are heading out for bonfire night, or walking the dog along the beach on a winter's day? Perfect for all activities, you will find that the mens Alta Down Jacket means not sacrificing style when facing sub zero temperatures. HeraldScotland: The Alta Down JacketThe Alta Down Jacket

3. The Parka Coat

If a puffer jacket is not for you, and you prefer a more modern vibe then a parka could be the answer to your winter dilemma? Still providing lots of warmth the mens Arctic Parka is down filled and water resistant making it the perfect wardrobe addition for inclement weather over the winter. Parkas have seen the transition from Liam Gallagher on stage wear, to being a necessity in every wardrobe in the country or the city.

The ladies Arctic Parka has a removable faux-fur trim hood for the ultimate luxury look, adding glamour whilst also being funtional with its water resistant fabric. We have to admit that a parka is a firm favourite, and a wardrobe staple.HeraldScotland: The Arctic ParkaThe Arctic Parka

4. The Smart Coat

A fabulous smart coat will never go out of fashion. A classic buy to take you from weekday business meetings to weekend lunches. Shorter styles in wool provide warmth and look smart like the mens Highland Coat with its seasonal check and hidden buttoning that looks as good over a suit as it does over jeans.
