You tend to invest more in warm clothes, but it can get quite daunting to shop within a budget with so much winter stuff to buy. Moreover, considering that the season will not last forever, it's not worth spending so much. After all, it's going to lie in the closet for the rest of the months. What we suggest is to invest only in quality pieces that can be worn year after year. Here are some of the things you need to shop for winters on a budget.

Winter Jackets and Coats

A jacket or coat is your outfit's outermost layer, and it is responsible for protecting you against external cold and wind chills. The outer shell of a winter jacket is typically made of leather or some wind-resistant material like nylon. The inside consists of insulation material like shearling, Sherpa, Thinsulate, etc., that helps trap and retain body heat. Invest in two to three quality winter coats or jackets that you can wear year after year. The best thing is that these are long-lasting and never go out of style.

Inner Layer

This is the innermost layer of clothing that directly touches the skin. The role of the innermost layer is to wick moisture and transfer it to the mid-layer. This helps keep you dry and retain body heat. The base layer can be made of materials like wool, silk, cotton, or synthetic material.

Mid Layer

I chose the Small based upon the size guide and it was a perfect fit if you want the nice body forming silhouette. The leather quality is great. I wore a thermal top underneath and it was 7C outside(38F) and I’m sure with a wool sweater or a base layer it could take up to 0C(32F) with no wind chill. This is perfect for fall/spring and early/late winter.

Kevin Kelley – Shearling Aviator Jacket Mens

I never expected this jacket to be such good quality. It was not the most expensive leather jacket I had seen but its quality is superb. It looks much more expensive than it was. When I opened the parcel, I was overtaken by the strong smell, of real and quality leather. It feels soft and is beautifully finished, off with little touches that were not even mentioned in the description i.e., extra zipped pockets and a beautiful silky lining
