Long Johns

Long johns are a much maligned item, but there comes a time in every man's life when he needs to reach for a pair. And hey - if Robert De Niro can wear thermals in the Godfather, so can you.

Firstly, they add plenty of value to your wardrobe. If you can't bear to say goodbye to your summer trousers, simply slip on a pair of long johns and enjoy your lighter legwear through the coldest of winters.

What's more, they make practical sense. The weather's getting colder, so for sun worshippers with a fear of the frost, thermals really aren't a bad option.

So where does the modern man look to for his long john needs? Try Uniqlo's Heattech collection. They have a range of items designed to keep you toasty, including these long johns. At £12.90 they're the cheapest wardrobe upgrade you'll find this winter. Just remember to never wear them on a date night - otherwise you can't blame us for any ensuing laughter.
