There’s still time to get sorted for winter as the chill begins to bite. If you haven’t yet discovered the Lands’ End catalogue, you’re in for a treat. It’s filled with the sort of useful, sturdy garments that upmarket fashiony stores wouldn’t give rail space to but which are just the thing for squally days when doing the school run, striding out to walk the dog or dashing round the supermarket.

Need a wind-resistant fleece? It has them in almost every colour in several different designs at user-friendly prices that start at £35; a Marinac fleece jacket (second picture) is £49. How about a Stamford Down coat with a faux fur-trimmed hood (first picture)? It has them in black, ivory, brown and navy for just £110. And for the feet there are snug sheepskin boots currently on sale at £49.
