Four layers every man needs in his winter wardrobe

Cooler weather can all too often mean a compromise between versatility and style. But our Bondi-beached based pals at The Academy Brand have your timeless winter style-staples sussed with their premium range of clean-cut classics.  We reckon these four layers deserve a spot in every men's wardrobe - no matter what winter throws your way.

The rugby jersey
A favourite for men across the ages, this wardrobe staple performance blends performance sport, classic, preppy style and absolute comfort. Opt for a contrast collar for maximum versatility in styling, like The Academy Brand's Heritage Rugby.

The puffer
You need not look like a human marshmallow to experience the warming power of puffer. Try a twill weaving style like the Woods Puffer Jacket to achieve a slick silhouette without sacrificing snuggly-ness.

The "coach" jacket
This nylon icon has you covered for transitional type weather. Made popular by US coaches in the '80s, this street-wear staple can be emboldened with brighter hues, and is the perfect pairing to both long-line tees and dressier, collared shirts.


The parka
Vintage preppy meets the outdoors with a zip-up, pocketed parka. A slim-cut like the Sherman Jacket will keep you snug yet stylish.
