Unless you’re agoraphobic, a husky or walk around attached to an intravenous Special Brew drip you’ll have noticed it’s getting a bit cold outside. Winter is here. For the right wing press it’s an opportunity to doom monger about Siberian snow drifts that will bring Britain to a halt, but for you and I it’s a chance to get a new coat.
Beams Plus 60/40 Coat (Beige) £399 at Oi Polloi (pictured)
Harajuku based Beams Plus give a definite nod to the parka’s Burberry made in the 1960’s with this smart bit of outerwear. Made from Toray Entrant Dermizax, which means its waterproof, breathable and suitable for just about anything the skies throw at you.
Creep CPO Wool Blend Jacket (Navy) £149 at A TOO
A smart heavy woollen blend over shirt, perfect for a crisp winter’s day. The slanted pockets and contrasting buffalo bone buttons are subtle little touches synonymous with Creep’s well thought out wares. As work wear goes this is one of the best pieces of the season for me.
Nanamica Gore-Tex Short Soutien Collar Coat (Marine Navy) £689 at End Clothing
A classic tailored silhouette upgraded and modernised by the clever chaps at Nanamica. The outer is 100% cotton with a Gore-Tex membrane covering. The detachable hood and pockets have a lovely corduroy trim.
Junya Watanabe Cotton Canvas Mac £489 at End Clothing
If you were offered a new mac and told its part huntsman, part ‘Open All Hours’, you’d laugh and politely decline wouldn’t you? Well more fool you. Junya Watanabe have done it. And it’s a thing of beauty. Made from premium cotton with tonal corduroy hunting patches, there’s a button down collar and roll over cuffs. A real stand out coat.
Uniqlo Wool Blended Pea Coat £89.90 at Uniqlo
A wardrobe staple for the less clement months from everyone’s favourite reasonably priced Japanese basics supplier. At home wherever you take it.
