Get ready for unpredictable weather in a snap by overhauling your coat capsule with some trend-driven, highly practical updates. Men's coats are seeing something of a retro revival this season, with the trench coat and the duffle coat front and centre in many designer coat collections, not to mention a happy resurgence of the timelessly dapper mackintosh raincoat. And with technical fabrics boasting waterproof treatments, locked-down zips keeping the wet out and fur trims providing that necessary toasty finish, modern winter coats are a happy union of form and function. By day, beige trench coats offer a sleek, contemporary layer over crisp tailoring, and a knee-length black coat is an intelligent investment for wardrobe-wide versatility come the evening. A camel coat in rich wool is an undeniable metropolitan mainstay, and coats without pockets offer a clean, streamlined aesthetic that's perfect for busy city living.
Looking for a crisp, masculine layer that'll work from the morning commute to after-work drinks all throughout fall/winter? Check out the new interpretation of the classic men's pea coat, or take a peek at what's happening with the caban jacket this season: we think you'll like what you see. With belts, luxe button trims and premium fabric compositions, these distinctive designer coats are proving themselves must-haves for cutting-edge seasonal layering.
Perhaps the leading sartorial trick for the coming months? It's got to be the ever-so dashing double-breasted design. This tailored take on outerwear has optimum versatile appeal, offering a sleek look for the office and an impeccable layer at formal occasions in inclement weather.
