The coat is an essential item of any tailoring fans’ wardrobe. Perhaps a herculean fit of sartorial excellence, the coat defines the talent of the tailor.
Dolce&Gabbana are renown for their tailoring expertise and in the Fall Winter Collection it really came to the fore. The look was based on tailoring and the coat is the undisputed monarch of the season and the runway.
Ah the suit coat combo: elegant, timeless and a tailoring statement in all senses. White shirt, dark tie and maybe a hat, like this flat cap finish off the look. Why not play with print and match your coat to your suit with a Prince of Wales check.
Even when its really cold outside you don’t have to compromise on your tailoring look with this goose down lined version. It’s a bit less formal than the traditional coat, but it works both for work and weekend.
With tailoring at the forefront of the seasons’ trends, pin stripe is back. Swap last year’s herringbone with a charcoal pin stripe coat.
The pea coat is a good compromise between tailoring and comfort. The shorter length makes it easy to wear, but the look is no less sharp. Pay attention to what you wear underneath it, as with a shorter coat the trousers are much more visible.
For when you need a statement coat, or if you want to feel spoilt by luxury a fur trimmed coat is the answer. Tailored, elegant and with luxurious fur on the collar, which sensually brushes on your check, its perfect to face those cold morning or just when you need an opulent cuddle.
