If suede isn't for you, shearling often goes hand-in-hand with leather. This dark brown jacket by Burberry has a mod-inspired edge to it - wear with an olive crew-neck underneath to add a bit of colour. It's also in their post-winter sale...
Or, if staying inside is more your thing, we can't recommend these sheepskin Ugg Slippers. Man Uggs are a controversial topic, but their handsome crafted slipper is certainly not to be laughed at. These are so insulating you'll wish it was staying colder for longer.

5 Ways With Shearling
Keeping ewe warm
By Chris Mandle, 10 January 2012
Post-Christmas, it's always naÃ¯ve of us to
assume the worst is over. In fact, this winter was so much milder than usual
we've half a mind to guess it's going to get pretty cold before Spring rears its
fluffy head. So layer up with shearling-lined clothes to really trap the warmth
Shearling is traditionally a sheepskin that goes through a limited shearing process in order to retain depth, and has recently seen a surge of popularity on aviator-style jackets, lined hats and gloves or boots for an extra layer of comfort.
Interestingly, sheepskin is naturally flame resistant - hold a match to sheepskin and it will char for a brief moment before the match extinguishes itself. It's also hypoallergenic, so there'll be no sneezing (unless you have a cold).
