    It's almost as this is purposeful art direction. The modeling standing in clean, tailored and perfectly proportioned garments as the dingy heeping snow piles calf high.

    This is how we dress here too in the wilds of northern Alberta, but for the fact the red coat is generally thicker, to accommodate layers and layers of goose down, has bigger pockets (for shotgun shells) and the hat is rattier, as befits something that started life as a muskrat. The glasses are the same too, although in our case we've been wearing the same pair since 1972.

    One trick to make those rubber Hunters a bit warmer in the winter is to pony up some cash for "welly warmers." They act like a sleeve that you tuck your socks and pants into. Then you slip these liners into the Hunters and now you've got some great water-resistant boots that don't instantly let the cold in… and they are tall enough to leave a one-inch lip that you can fold over the top of the boot and still have a Hunter logo in the same exact place. Available in all colours the Hunters come in so you can match up or pick a complimentary liner colour.

    The idea that a brand of wellington boot is an "iconic" product is laughable. These sort of things are supposed to live in your "boot room" (ie you live in the country or at least have a house there) and not fit anyone quite right, they should not cost £60 and have a label on the front.

    There are some people on these pages who have an innate sense of style dictated only by their own imagination and intuition, and not by any fads or trends. Those are the people I love to see here.

    Then, there are a lot of folks who put something together that while interesting to look at, feels very contrived and of-the-moment, meaning it won't last into the next moment. This fellow falls into that camp, as does the guy in the next photo…as do I far too often.

    Cut to me buying the bag AND coat.

    To William, I just saw the bag at Urban Outfitters. It's a collab between UO and BillyKirk.

    Oh, I just adore everything this gent has going on, here.

    It's all so purposeful and aligned, but snappy!

    Love, love!

    This picture says a lot! I like the attitude and mix of clothes.

    So it seems plaid red lumberjack-style jackets are in trend? This guy turned it up a notch then.

    Every piece is great, which is the showpiece here?!
