Isaac Carew’s top 5 outerwear picks

From the runway to the kitchen; chef turned model, turned chef again, Isaac Carew certainly knows how to rustle up a mean dish - and with a few major fashion campaigns under his belt too, he also knows a thing or two about dressing to impress.

With winter well on its way, we asked him to talk us through his styling tips for the 5 coats he thinks you should be investing in this autumn/winter…


Cooler climates on the way? This shearling ticks all the boxes in a winter jacket: a modern fit, strong simple lines and guaranteed to keep the chill off. It’s a cool additional to any man’s wardrobe.


Gilets are an easy way to layer up your look. Wear it thrown over or under another jacket, if you’re not sure how to style it, my go-to is over a sweatshirt, jeans and with some trainers. Sunday stroll to the pub attire, sorted.


This will add a touch of smart to pretty much any outfit. The trick to an overcoat is to find one the right length for you. Going for a check makes for a great statement coat, but is also pretty versatile for both dressed-up/dressed-down style. 


This classic parka is an all-weather-ready icon. What I like most about this jacket is all the bold hardware and the split zip opening. It’s simple with a luxury edge, the coolest way to keep warm.


The bomber jacket isn’t going anywhere, and you really can’t go wrong with one for a night with the lads. One of my style heroes is Steve McQueen, and I’m confident he would give this slim fit, deep tan, suede bomber jacket the thumbs up.
