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.

As temperatures plummet, so does the motivation to leave your warm hideaway in order to work out. Staying in with a packet of chips and a movie is likely always going to win, so we need new ways to get excited about going outside and working up a sweat. Getting up and out of the house to get some exercise is made much easier when you know you've got some fresh new gear to put on that'll keep you warm, dry, and looking good.

In the past two decades, huge advances have been made in fabric technologies that keep you warm, even in sub-zero temperatures. From merino wool blends to GORE-TEX footwear, this roundup is something like the modern-day suit of armor. So don your thermals and hit the front line with no regard for the weather.

Running in the rain is not only highly uncomfortable, but it also poses problems with any tracking devices that use touch controls.
