This season’s mainstay is a garment to invest in.
And this is the moment to be maximizing on an important purchase that will accompany you through many a winter. Coat, pea coat or jacket? It’s all a matter of taste (and occasion).
Needless to say, a tailored overcoat is a must-have in the wardrobe of any self-respecting gentleman. An indispensable ingredient of formalwear, whether you’re going to dinner, the theater, or a party; and your loyal partner in a business look, impeccable, flawless, a guarantee of good style. We’ve got your length options covered: pick the passe-partout knee-length version and you can’t go wrong. Something a little more of the blue blood variety? Consider the 7/8 coat, currently making its comeback, for an aristocratic allure with a hint of the dramatic.
Slightly more casual, yet ever timeless, is the pea coat, contemporary descendent of the navy jacket. The classic blue, double-breasted model is your starting point for an endless array of variations, from new proportions to statement details. Think belts, strategically placed zippers and appliqué pockets.
Versatility is key for jackets, now a universe unto themselves. The epitome of practicality and decisively multifaceted, they come in all materials possible: flannel, technical fabrics and even leather. Careful cuts to guarantee an optimal fit are essential in every example, as are highly technological finishings to provide protection from the elements.
