It’s come to that time of the year where you need to wrap up warm! With temperatures plummeting, it’s essential that you have the right winter workwear jacket to keep you warm. Here at Clothes2order we have over 250 styles of jacket to choose from and we’re confident there’s one to suit you. To help you choose your ideal jacket type, we will take you through the features and the benefits of each type of jacket in our range.


A fleece should be a staple piece for all wardrobes. This is due to the versatility of this type of Jacket. The majority of fleeces are synthetic and 100% polyester. This gives a fleece properties such as being both thick and warm but also light and soft to touch.

A key benefit of fleeces is their durability. If properly cared for, fleeces can last for a long time without the garment losing its shape or feel. Fleeces are extremely easy to clean with no ironing required. A fleece also dries rapidly. This is due to a fleece not absorbing water instead, pulling moisture away using tiny, built-in capillaries, making it easier for water to evaporate.

Fleeces are suitable for all as they are non-allergenic, making it an excellent choice for children for example.

Our best selling fleece, the Regatta Thor III Full Zip Fleece Jacket. Manufactured by an industry leader, Regatta, this 100% polyester pill resistant polar fleece is built to last. The fabric used prevents the fleece from pilling and bobbling, which is a common fault in many other fleeces.

Additionally, the polyester fabric is fast drying and there are zipped pockets on either side of the jacket for convenient storage. This garment is best for outdoor uniforms and outdoor pursuits.


Softshell Jackets are suitable for a wide range of activities. A softshell sits in between a fleece which is less water resistant and windproof, and a waterproof jacket, which is less stretchy. Softshell’s are made from a woven material which mostly consists of polyester. Unlike a conventional waterproof jacket there is no lining in a softshell instead it is made by bonding two material layers together. 

When the weather is especially chilly and you need something more durable than a fleece, softshell jackets are the perfect midlayer. But due to its showerproof and windproof properties, a softshell can be worn as an outer layer over a base layer or jumper.

Softshells allow for stretch due to being made of flexible fabrics that allow for maximum movement. Additionally the fabrics allow a soft shell to be conveniently stored in a rucksack for example, when not needed.

Our softshell recommendation is the Russell Men’s Softshell Jacket. From the industry standard setter, Russell, this softshell is available in a wide range of sizing options. You’ll be sure to find the right fit for you. Handy features such as cord pulls, adjustable cuffs and bungee hem all mean you can adjust the jacket to best fit you.

This jacket is water resistant up to 5000mm as well windproof. This gives even more protection than some standard waterproof jackets. This jacket provides a professional aesthetic and is both excellent quality and extremely practical. This jacket is highly recommended for day to day use. 


Bodywarmers do exactly what they say, they keep your body warm! Bodywarmers main use is to help to preserve body heat. 

With bodywarmers there is something for every activity thanks to the wide range of performance textiles available which can provide water resistance and breathability. For example, a quilted bodywarmer features insulated pockets that are divided by stitches which are quilted on the outside. This allows for body heat to be retained.

A key benefit of a bodywarmer is that it does not restrict your movement and is a less bulky option than a conventional jacket. Also a bodywarmer is another pair of pockets and can come in handy to store keys and wallets. Up to eight pockets can be found on some bodywarmers.

The B&C Bodywarmer is our recommendation for a bodywarmer. The cut and the adjustable elastic armholes allow for a great comfortable fit. This bodywarmer is also very practical with an inner zip pocket. This will come in useful for securely storing items such as keys and wallets. The bodywarmer has a great corporate look too. Dress it up or down, it looks terrific.

Padded Jacket

A Padded Jacket is an option which provides fantastic insulation from the elements. Thousands of tiny air pockets trap warm air which retains heat and allows the wearer to keep warm.  These jackets have a signature quilted design with sections that are insulated between the stitching. Padded jackets are insulated with synthetic fibres.

Padded jackets are both water and wind resistant. Additionally, padded jackets are lightweight which allows for them to be easily transportable. These jackets tend to have contemporary styling which can match a variety of clothing and also uniforms.

The Result Snow Bird Padded Jacket has the signature quilted design and a fashionable and contemporary fit.  This styling allows for the jacket to be incorporated into a variety of uniforms. Features of this jacket include being water repellent and windproof. This jacket is lightweight due to the  super soft hand filled polyester fibre.

Being lightweight allows for easy storage and easy transportation for when it is not being worn. However, practicality is not compromised with elasticised cuffs and 3 large zipped pockets.

Bomber Jacket

A Bomber jacket is waist length jacket with a ribbed waistband and matching cuffs. This jacket type often features four practical pockets on the top and sides, as well as a zippered front. Bomber jackets can be produced from a variety of materials, including polyester, nylon, and cotton.

A key benefit of a bomber jacket is that is an evergreen design. With its roots dating back to the 1920’s, it will be sure to be a staple jacket for many years to come.

The Build Your Brand Bomber Jacket is our recommendation. This jacket is inline with the classic bomber jacket design with the typical pocket on the right sleeve. Available in black with a contrast orange colour lining, the jacket provides the perfect base for personalisation.

Why not try a personalisation on the front and the back of this garment to make your uniform stand out from the crowd. This jacket is ideal for businesses wanting a unique look for their uniform.


A Windbreaker is designed to shield the wearer from chilly breezes, light rain, or cool air. It is designed to offer a layer of warmth. A windbreaker is perfect for hobbies such as running and hiking. This is due to the comfort, breathability and the compactness of a windbreaker.

A windbreaker is also beneficial due to safety reasons due to being available in many bright colours. For example, at Clothes2order we have over 14 colours of windbreaker available.

The B&C Sirocco Windbreaker Jacket is a great choice. This jacket is both windproof and showerproof. The concealed hood located within the collar provides extra protection from showers.
