How To Wear Long Winter Coats25th June 2020
As the days get shorter and the temperature starts to drop, it’s important to take stock of your wardrobe. Well made sweaters, hardwearing long pants and quality boots are part and parcel – but does your coat & jacket cupboard include a tailored overcoat? No other piece offers winter warmth and sophisticated style in equal measures, making it one of the most versatile wardrobe items for the season.
Investing in a high-quality wool overcoat will ensure prolonged enjoyment across many seasons. Staples such as our Calton Hill and Murchison coats are woven in Italy from Italian woollen blends, and both carry the Woolmark Blend logo as a certification of strict quality and performance standards. The tailored lapels of these styles offer distinction, even when dressed down with an everyday item like denim, and their classic considered cuts make them adaptable wardrobe additions for a number of years to come.
While wearing an overcoat can be a statement itself, choosing one in a neutral colour is key to ensuring versatility and longevity of wear. Darker shades like midnight (black) or lighter ones like ash (grey) work well with a range of wardrobe stablemates. Try pairing an overcoat with a mid-weight crew neck knit, like our Gibbston Bay and a pair of slim-fit pants (such as Forsyth) for a smart casual look. Pairing an overcoat with a smart button-down shirt and a scarf results in a more refined look – allowing you to add personality and pops of colour via your scarf and shirt choice.
