It’s that time of year. You’re sweating one minute, and freezing your bollocks off the next, thanks to erratic weather and poor judgement in front of your wardrobe.
When winter changes into spring, and then back again, usually within the space of several hours, it’s important to be prepared. Avoid sweaty armpits on your journey home, or a case of frostbite on your commute to work, by balancing light layers, and choosing materials and your rig-out wisely.
Here are six garments that should see you through those cold/warm winter/spring months…
Folk's Rainmac is a classic design, with an interior mesh pocket and a handy removable drawstring hood, it'll keep you dry and the smart press-stud vent will stop you from melting if the weather takes a turn.
It's 100% wool, but lightweight enough, and the neat ribbed collar and cuffs mean you won't need any layers underneath. A classic breton design, and a wardrobe staple.
Lightweight cotton, waterproof and it's got four pockets, so you can carry your sunglasses and/or wooly hat. Woolrich make great parkas and it's worth shelling out for this one. Oh, and it's bright yellow.
If your Grandad's got (Or had. My condolences.) any sense he probably wears John Smedley. Are you going to argue with your Grandad about jumpers? Thought not. The Roe pullover is made of Smedley's finest Sea Island cotton and is a massively versatile garment. Buy one.
A knitted cotton jumper by French collossuses of cool A.P.C. It's made in Peru, it's bright red, and if you fancy going full Gainsbourg you can wear it with nothing underneath. Ça va? Bien.
100% waterproof, with a breathable lining and welded seams, an adjustable hood and a three hole ventilation system. If it's going to piss down this summer (it is, at some point), you may as well be prepared.
