Functional Outerwear for AW16

It’s tough to stay looking on-point when you’ve got to think about battening up against the elements. Style and practicality don’t always go hand-in-hand after all - or at least not in the realms of affordable designer menswear.

We see that, which is why we’ve utilised decades of technical manufacturing experience for the AW16 outerwear range. The Submerged Collection is our best combination yet of high function and great style.

Functional Outerwear & Style

Not sure what we mean? Allow us to introduce the Thermal Puffer Jacket.

Men's Thermal Puffer Jacket (Dark Sand) | Realm & Empire

Simply put, it’s the warmest coat that we’ve ever produced. With the addition of a military-spec thermal lining beneath the windproof extra-fine cotton outer layer, we're taking comfort to pro levels – and that’s before we get to the stylish side-entrance pockets and drawstring hood, waist and hem.

With a range of three colours available and with Puffer Jackets coming back on trend this year, it’s the only coat you need to look good on those cold mornings, chilly nights and weekend winter walks.

But we know that there’s more to stylish functionality than just warmth. You need variety as well, something that the Submerged Collection has in spades – and as the Diver Jacket proves in a single garment.

Men's Diver Jacket | Realm & Empire

Constructed from fleece-lined cotton, the R/E Diver Jacket takes inspiration from the silhouette of WWII diver uniforms. The warm fleece lining and gorgeous buttons give a hint of the stylish practicality, but it’s the removable hood that makes this jacket a truly effective piece of winter wear.

Fit for blistering cold or generally inclement weather, the hood is one good-looking piece of head protection. But if it's overkill for the conditions the large pop-up collar should suffice - and maintain your smart visage.

These pieces are the practical outerwear highlights of the Submerged Collection, but we’ve got more going on besides. Check out our fine British knitwear for more winter warmth, or head to Accessories to complement your look.
