Country Break Essentials

Out of the shelter and into the storm.
Are you planning a break into the great outdoors this winter? Going to explore the Yorkshire dales or cosy up in a log cabin? Then look no further. Here at Stand-Out, we know how important it is to be prepared and face every challenge that may come your way (and for most of us this will be packing – regardless the length of time you are away!) But it is important to pack light, remain warm and look dapper. We’ve put together some essential tips to help you on your merry way this winter.

An obvious choice here is socks… however, I am sure we’ve all forgot to pack these bad boys at least once or twice on our travels. So remember to pack your favourite pairs of warm, toasty socks to keep yourself insulated from the bottom up.

In Black, featuring straight toes, these 3 Pack Ribbed Logo Socks from Polo Ralph Lauren also features a brand logo to the ribbed cuffs.


You are about to brave the weather of the great outdoors and get your teeth stuck into some amazing activities in the wilderness, which means you will 100% need a coat! Do not under any circumstances disregard this point.

You have a few options to go with here… But, the most important tip of all is to stay warm and dry. It’s handy to pack a lightweight raincoat you can roll up and wedge into your rucksack and something a little heavier to keep the winters chill from getting under your skin.

Converse Bitter Lemon Rubber Fishtail Rain Jacket
Coming in Bitter Lemon, this Rubber Fishtail Rain Jacket from Converse features an adjustable hood, front zip closure, two front flap pockets and brand logo attached to the bottom left. This jacket for men sports Climate Counter with durable construction & water repellence.


Bellfield Navy Cardin 3 In 1 Washed Parka Jacket
Cardin 3 In 1 Washed Parka Jacket from Bellfield features hood with adjustable drawstring, zip-up front with flap cover, and ribbed, elasticated cuffs with velcro closure, full jacket with detachable thermal protection layer, and detachable inner gilet. Featuring drawstring to the front and vented back of the waist hem, this navy jacket for men has metallic buckle strap to the back of the hood.


Here is a key packing tip to ensure you stay light when you travel. Pack your most versatile items, the ones in your wardrobe that you generally wear the most. These items are the easiest to match up with any outfit. Flannel shirts, denims, luxury knits, jeans and chinos are the way forward here. If you want to spruce up your attire for the evening then pack a white Oxford shirt and some smart shoes to give your outfit a little something special.

We hope these tips have managed to help guide your way through your winter adventures and keep you looking dapper as well as practical.
