Essential Coats for AW18


From pure wool numbers to parkas, we roundup our top five coats for Autumn/Winter ’18

When it comes to your bigger sartorial investments, a little more consideration is needed to make the smart choice, and with summer’s end on the horizon the time for that new coat is now. One of those rare purchases where purpose matters as much as style, it’s important to weigh up all options: from fabrics to fit to the finer details that will really elevate your outerwear game.

Whether you favour a pure wool number, or you’re drawn to something a little more sports luxe, our latest editorial has your Autumn outerwear all covered.

Camelot: The Timely Number

Taking its name from the castle and court of King Arthur, the Camelot longline overcoat is equally as legendary. Opting for a more unstructured, athleisure-inspired take on a sleek shape, it’s very of the moment and the deep patch pockets are perfect for keeping hands warm during bitter mornings and evenings.

Douglas: The Statement Number

If you’re really looking to flex your style muscles this season, the easiest way to do it is with dogstooth. The elegant Douglas overcoat marries a comforting wool-blend with a classic black-and-white stitching for a design that evokes your sense of style without seeming overbearing or too loud. The concealed button placket makes for a contemporary and clean finish.

Gable: The Wool Number

Wool in fabric, warm by nature, the Gable coat captures that classic outerwear silhouette and infuses it with a touch of the now thanks to the modern cool of its camel colour. The lined pockets and simple button fastening make for an overall clean design that will last you a lifetime.

Alvaro: The Cool Number

For those days where practicality takes precedence, the Alvaro zip-through parka is a smart option to have in your arsenal. Our take on the “football-manager’s jacket”, it’s a guaranteed way to introduce the current sports luxe trend to your wardrobe while also offering protection from the inevitable spells of rainfall. Although it may lend itself more to casualwear, it won’t take away from a more sophisticated look, too, if worn with tailoring.

Whittington: The Considered Number

For a different take on the standard grey coat, the Whittington offers something special thanks to its handsome salt-and-pepper finish. The overall grey tone, though, still allows you plenty of room to play with styling, whether you want to adapt it for the work commute or weekend excursions. Finer details, such as the raw edges, add modern touches to the overall design and silhouette.
