Trends come and go, but classics are forever. Clothing brand MANGO feels the same, and they’ve drawn up a collection of classic pieces fit for even the most fashion-forward men and women.
When it comes to fashion, we love sharing a taste of the slow life. Timeless pieces from brands that have a commitment to the environment are best, but far too many are simply born from trends. A few select brands like MANGO are challenging the status quo with a selection of products that are contemporary in style but offer intrinsic value with every wear. Adding any one of these to your wardrobe would set you up for years with a quality aesthetic that is never trying to do too much. Go quick, because you’ll score up to 50% off during Mango’s Black Friday sales event on now.
MANGO Classic Outerwear Pieces
An appreciation for details is at the heart of everything the brand stands for. While others opt for bold designs and bright colours, MANGO channels the warmth of the Mediterranean with details that transfer into their collections. We’ve curated a selection of our favourite classic outerwear pieces that are sure to provide style this winter and for many years to come.
1. Pocket Textured Jacket
Mediterranean style in a nutshell. Natural colours combine with a matching pair of trousers and turtleneck sweater to round out this look highlighted by the pocket textured jacket. Note that matching your top and trousers is a great style hack for the modern man and is made far easier when opting for something with a regular fit and short design. We love the two pocket flap details on the front of the lightweight jacket, perfect for a casual night out.
Composition: 91% polyester, 9% viscose.
Pockets lining: 100% cotton
2. Short Thermoregulatory Anorak
Technical outerwear is a trend that’s really come to the front of fashion over the last year. Blending the classic with the contemporary, this short anorak from MANGO features all the fabrics features you look for in a piece that traditionally sits at a much higher price point than seen here.
Featuring Thermoregulatory technology that regulates body temperature, is water-resistant, and padded, this anorak is perfect for wearing every day on your commute to work in the colder months ahead. Other notable features include a turtleneck, zipper pockets, zip fastening, and inner lining. Most importantly this product is made from recycled polyester and is designed for a sustainable future.
Composition: 100% polyester.
Lining: 100% polyester.
Filling: 100% recycled polyester.
Pockets lining: 100% polyester.
3. Recycled Wool Oversize Coat
A classic in everyone’s eye, the wool oversize coat is a staple addition to any fashionable man’s wardrobe. If you don’t have one yet, let this be your excuse to pick one up as MANGO has a great piece on offer at an affordable price point. We’re talking about a coat with recycled features designed with sustainable tailoring in mind, including a regenerative wool yarn spun from recycled sweaters. Pretty cool right? Well, it doesn’t stop there.
The oversized design is perfect for layering this Winter, and we recommend pairing it with your favourite sweater, turtle neck, shirt-jacket, or cardigan – maybe even something from the list below. In terms of footwear, you’ll simply never go wrong with a pair of quality leather penny loafers or white sneakers.
Composition: 70% recycled wool, 30% polyamide.
Lining: 55% polyester, 45% viscose.
4. Knitted Braided Sweater
Moving from traditional outwear pieces to a selection of layered options, let’s start with this knitted classic from MANGO. Featuring an all-over braided pattern, this is a far more elevated option than the usual crewneck sweater and offers a more sophisticated approach to fashion as such. A thick knitted fabric material means you’ll stay cosy this winter and we recommend pairing this sweater with your favourite pair of blue denim jeans and sneakers.
Composition: 43% acrylic, 30% polyester, 19% wool, 8% polyamide.
5. Textured Zip Knit Sweatshirt
A perfect example of the winter layering technique is examined here with the textured zip knit sweater. The application of a higher than average collar means any type of men’s coat will sit just below the neckline for a smart and sophisticated approach to style this winter. We recommend pairing this one exactly as pictured, a pair of woollen trousers, overcoats, and sneakers will result in a smart-casual fit to challenge any style. Simply timeless.
Composition: 34% acrylic, 33% polyester, 28% polyamide, 4% wool, 1% elastane
6. Pocket Wool-Blend Cardigan
Wool cardigan’s made the biggest style splash during autumn and they’re here to stay with a number of quality options available from leading menswear brands such as MANGO. Unfortunately, not all cardigans are equal and some suffer from being either too light, too thick, or too flimsy. This V-Neck cardigan finds the ultimate middle ground and features two front pockets, a structured fabric construction, and a button-up centre. A stylish alternative to the typical crewneck sweater.
Composition: 30% wool, 25% polyester, 18% viscose, 15% acrylic, 12% polyamide
7. Leather Penny Loafer
We’ve tackled a few classic outerwear options from MANGO, but we’d be remiss to mention their leather penny loafer. This penny loafer really hit the mark for us with a classic shape, rubber outsole, and glue construction. It’s at the casual end of the spectrum when it comes to loafers, but that’s a good thing as you’ll want to wear these every day after breaking them in. Simply pair them with any of the outerwear options above for elevated casual appeal.
Upper: 100% Bovine Leather
Lining: 60% Polyester
Sole: 100% Thermoplastic
