Wet weather season may have arrived but being well prepared means you needn’t sacrifice on style in favour of keeping dry. The classic overcoat is an essential winter wardrobe staple, thanks to its unique combination of water-repelling properties and gentlemanly appeal.

The C-Dias coat by Hugo Boss is a must-have for both the professional and those who want an off-duty look that doesn’t compromise classic style for comfort. Stay smart in the April showers in a simple but effective style merging practical water-repelling fabric with the signature attention to detail for which the menswear designer is best known, including three-button front fastening, buttoned sleeves and branded under-collar leather trim. Navy is timeless, meaning this overcoat will see you through plenty of British washout winters.

Slip over a navy or black suit when the workday beckons, before making like Steve McQueen and layering your overcoat with dark chinos and a simple charcoal polo neck T-shirt for an off-duty look. When it comes to footwear, Chelsea boots, trainers and smart business brogues will all work well with what is set to become one of the most versatile coats you’ll ever own.
