Winter is Here: The Best Long Johns to Keep You Warm

Most of the country is in a deep freeze these days – it’s seems we were warned and no one paid attention. Winter has come. It’s fucking freezin! And as someone who still likes to walk as my preferred mode of transport,even in winter, long johns have long been my saviour. I always dress with a base layer under my jeans or trousers once the mercury drops below freezing. An extra layer helps to keep you warm but be warned not all long johns are equal. And not all are made for the coldest temperatures. Here is my rundown of my favourites – across pricepoints. Just remember, you want them to fit nice and snug – like a second skin.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
