  • Words by Mr Mansel Fletcher, Features Editor, MR PORTER

In the mountains it's reasonable to prioritise the degrees in Fahrenheit over questions of fashion. However, there's no reason why, with the right clothes, a man can't remain warm on the inside while looking cool on the outside. It takes a moment to remember what works in the snow, in terms of colours and textures, as well as in terms of comfort, warmth and style. Even men who stick to dark urban hues for life in the city should consider extending the colour palette when packing for a week on the slopes.

Although we firmly stand by all eight pieces of advice given below, we also retain an admiration for the British actor Mr Bill Nighy, who once told MR PORTER that he went to Chamonix, a ski resort in France, wearing a navy two-piece suit, a Crombie coat and a trilby.
