COVER STORY

03.10.14

We pay homage to the season’s most stylish men's coats and jackets, and in the process demonstrate just how ruggedly charming layering can look.

THE LONG & SHORT OF IT

Explore the relationship between lengths when you layer to give way to surprisingly fashionable combinations.

FULL COVERAGE

A long-line coat not only provides full coverage, but is effortlessly elegant thanks to its elongated silhouette.

DOUBLE TAKE

When rendered in a melange fabric, the double-breasted jacket suddenly feels refreshed.

OVER & ABOVE

The natural choice for slipping over fine tailoring, AW14's overcoats speak of a refined sartorial sensibility.

MILITARY PRECISION

Inspired by military wear, AW14's offering of sharply-cut pea coats are a testament to the much-loved style's resilience.

A FINE FABRICATION

Subtle, tactile and always stylish, a melange weave is our textural tip for the season.

HIGH STYLE

Restrained and refined, opt for a reissued version of the classic aviator jacket and watch your style stock soar.

TALKING POINT

Let your winter style reach its peak by donning outerwear with lapels tailored to a sharp point.

FEELING FINE

AW14's outerwear offering journeys through a myriad of fabrications which feel every bit as good as they look.

SEEN IN A NEW LIGHT

While we're still enamoured with the camel coat, this season's shade lightens up to become barely-there taupe.

TAKE FLIGHT

We take the aviator jacket, render it in the most luxurious shearling, and watch as this style ascends to new heights.

BLUFF YOUR WAY

AW14's new sartorial order does away with frippery in favour of bluff detailing.

THE NEW BLACK

Versatile, understated yet ideal for imbuing cool insouciance, the black overcoat is rarely out of fashion.

SOFT TOUCH

Peeking out from a jacket's collar, a careful placing of texture adds subtle sartorial intrigue.

TECHNICAL EXPERTISE

Not just undeniably stylish, new technical fabrications give AW14's outerwear practical credentials to boot.

About the Shoot

As the year draws towards its brisk conclusion, the issue of which outerwear to opt for is naturally the sartorial concern most pressing for the most stylish of men. Chosen wisely, your winter outerwear will be a sartorial saviour that you’ll want to reach for during the whole season ahead. For AW14 we at Reiss are celebrating the diversity, luxury, versatility and dynamism of men’s outerwear.

We’re firm believers in the testament of tradition. That’s why you’ll find familiar shapes in our outerwear offering which channel the structural design which has kept so many men suitably stylish (and warm) from year to year, and from season to season. That’s not to say however that a directional aesthetic isn't at the forefront of our outerwear range; the coats and jackets that you’ll see this season reveal their slick sartorial prowess upon closer inspection. And, as with many of menswear’s fondly cherished staples, much of our outerwear's design takes inspiration from military apparel.

To give our offering a fresh new approach, gone are embellishments and frippery, and in their place lie experimental new fabrications and bluff detailing (think hidden pockets and concealed closures, melange weaves and flecked fabrics). We’re championing pieces which embrace a quiet design dynamism.

Everyday heroes which will slot seamlessly into your existing wardrobe sit alongside unabashedly luxurious designs which have been crafted from the finest fabrications – so whatever the occasion, you’re covered. Think not of your coat as a single entity either, as evidenced in our above fashion feature, outerwear should feel gloriously versatile, layered with tailoring or off-duty ensembles alike.

Though dipping temperatures may not be palatable to most, with one of our AW14 outerwear designs in your style arsenal there are plenty of reasons to be cheerful about the onset of winter.
