The Highsnobiety Winter Wardrobe Manual is a guide to dressing well when temperatures plummet. Expect big coats, padded pants, snug accessories, and hibernation-ready homeware.
When it comes to fall and winter outerwear, the combo coat is a gift from above. While this time of year usually means trawling the net to find several coats specifically made for one or another scenario, the combination coat ushers in a new level of versatility. Uniting multiple jackets as one, from reversible options to detachable liners via insulating down and waterproof layers, the combo coat means you only need one coat for the rest of the year.
The best bit is that while you’ll be supplementing your wardrobe with more than one piece, you don’t have to pay for it. Consider it the Trojan horse of coats — masquerading as one item when it comes to first-glance style and price, but offering so much more. From adidas COLD.RDY to Burberry, here are the best combo coats for seeing out the rest of 2020 in.

Brain Dead Color Blocked Mirco Jacket
We’ve seen detachable hoods, base layers, gloves, even trousers, but detachable forearms is a new one. Brain Dead’s pastel, color-blocked Mirco Jacket pulls it off with chutzpah, though. This padded number quickly transforms into a warm indoor topper at the zip of an arm.
ARNAR MAR JONSSON Reversible Mesh Hooded Jacket
Arnar Mar Jonsson is the fledgling, London-based label that's actively taking over the world of techwear. Combining washed-out palettes with technical prowess, Arnar Mar Jonsson is as memorable as it is effective. This lightweight, reversible jacket boasts the brand's signature earth-tone palette while blocked panels bring another powerful visual element.
Burberry Tartan Down Jacket
It might not be Burberry’s classic check, but this tartan motif is just as eye-catching. Having walked this season’s runway for the label, the Tartan Down Jacket has been on our minds for a while thanks to its detachable hood and massive front pockets.
Levi's Type 3 Reversible Jacket
Type 3 Reversible Jacket
Forgoing technical, detachable layers for downright visual identity, the Levi's Type 3 Reversible Jacket comes as a two-for-one package with a very punchy, all-over zebra print to one side.
adidas COLD.RDY Down Jacket
With COLD.RDY, adidas updates classic silhouettes and drops a handful of new products which are all specced up for the colder months. This down parka comes in two sections: a high-loft down parka forms the base for an overlay jacket that adds weather protection and a unique aesthetic.
A.A.Spectrum Reversible Mandarin Puffer Jacket
A.A. Spectrum takes inspiration from traditional Asian silhouettes for the Mandarin Puffer Jacket. This collarless, shawl-like jacket features dropped shoulders for a draping look. Technical satin converse both sides of this reversible piece with a Thinsulate lining.
visvim Reversible Iris Jacket
Reversible Iris Jacket
One side gives off vintage, Americana vibes with patches and exaggerated striped pockets while the other side of the visvim liner takes a much more refined tack with technical satin. Hypnotic stuff from visvim, as expected.
White Mountaineering Reversible Padded Coat
We love earth tones, you probably know that by now, so this double-sided White Mountaineering offer gets our vote twice. Brown to one side and beige to the other, a feather-down lining ensures White Mountaineering’s second-to-none outdoor expertise.
