EXCLUSIVE: The weather is feeling distinctively, susipiciously mild at the moment, but rest assured: the cold snap is on its way. Sweatshirts won't cut it. Jackets in the lightweight class won't be able to compete. You need big comfy cosy gear, purpose-built, but still built to look good. Moncler knows.

That's why the label has released, once again, a tightly curated edit of outerwear that focuses on the practical. Moncler does lots of avant-garde stuff, yes, which has value in pushing the trajectory of menswear. But the meat and bones Moncler – the stuff that bulks out the current kernel of menswear – is just as valuable, and wearable.

Of course, there's the puffer jacket. Lots of them. But for this season, Moncler's range is comprehensive. There's a really classic Oxford shirt, scarves in solid colours, knitwear that's dying to be layered up, even a bit of tweed in a Prince of Wales check (on a puffer jacket, because Moncler).

It's proof that outerwear can be all climbing the Matterhorn, but still fall safely on the blue slopes of classic menswear. This stuff is your foundation. And, while your accessories, mad trainers and current rotation will do the singing, they won't keep you warm – just cool (on all fronts). Moncler does both.

Available online at moncler.com, from £750 onwards
