Any man’s wardrobe is not complete without a good overcoat and with winter well and truly on the way there’s no better time to check out some pieces that will be keeping you alive in the coming months.
There is a few things to consider when buying an overcoat and you will want to pay close attention to fabric, fit, style and length. A coat is an investment, so take the time to look at your life and what you need. If you’re in need of a daily coat to wear well into the future, a 100% wool coat will be a lot more durable than the cashmere or cashmere blended options available. The heritage connotations of the different styles of overcoats still hold relevance but in today’s society you are pretty safe with anything that fits your personal preference whether it be a short pea coat, mid length duffle or a longer knee length variety.
The Scandinavians know how to do cold weather and a classic overcoat is something that you can keep in rotation season after season. If you’re still on the look out to invest in your first piece or after another coat to put into the rotation, we have put together a mix of the best pieces from our corner of the world that are available online now.
