I consider a classic overcoat to be a gentleman’s wardrobe staple. If you are thinking about purchasing a new overcoat, or a car coat, for this coming winter it would make sense to plan well ahead, and I would be delighted to talk to you about the benefits of choosing the bespoke option. I am sure those of you who travel on a regular basis to the northern hemisphere would find this to be particularly relevant. There are a number of fabric choices that I feel are especially suited to this type of garment including pure wool, cashmere, vicuna and tweed. Also worth considering is a 50/50 wool and cashmere mix which offers the ideal combination of softness and durability. I have wide range of fabric samples that I would be happy to show you.
One style that has proved to be popular in Britain over the past year is the Covert Coat, an example of which can be seen here. Originally designed in the late 19th century to be used when riding, the two standout features of the Covert Coat are the four rows of stitching and the poacher’s pocket. It is ideal for both town and country wear.
