Gentlemen- the weather is decidedly taking a turn for the worse, so there really is no better time to proof yourself against the elements; it is October next week after all! We take a leaf out of the book of country style from the likes of Barbour and Hunter and show you how to pull off the country gent look on the high street.

Barbour & Hunter at

Barbour have been fine purveyors of jackets for many years- producing coats in their famous weatherproof wax cotton since 1894. Anything that has heritage or a vintage look is in fashion this winter-if your granddad wore it back in the day, then you should be wearing it right now. Bring back a bit of nostalgia to your wardrobe and go for a Barbour coat finished in a wax cotton. Fully waterproof and wind resistant, they are one of the best jackets around for keeping you warm and dry when the heavens open. Then of course there's the smell- Barbour's are truly one of a kind jackets. Keep your colours traditional-we love the green's, navy's and black's shown above; they're as true to typical British style as you can get.

The chances are that at some point this winter it's going to get so wet (and muddy, depending on where you are in the world), that you're going to need something more than a pair of shoes. The answer? A pair of Hunter wellingtons. Just like Barbour, Hunter are steeped in history, plying their trade for over a century. They know what they're doing-so you can rely on them to keep your feet dry and cosy when the going gets tough.

Now although Hunters are likely to keep your feet dry, you're going to need a little something else to keep them warm. Try these wellington socks by Barbour- they come high enough to keep your calves warm too, and if you choose to tuck your trousers into them you'll have the full gun toting country boy look going on.

Finally, it's more than likely that at some point this winter, you will contract the dreaded man flu. This however, does not mean that you should suffer in the style stakes. If you're feeling brave enough to battle on and make a few public appearances, take these Barbour handkerchiefs with you. Just because your snivelling doesn't mean you can't still look good.
