We know what mid-winter’s like here and we appreciate the value of a really well-made, really warm buffer layer. But in Canada a man needs some kind of outerwear for eight months of every year – different coats to cope with the infinite permutations of weather we experience from the first cool days of autumn through to the end of spring.
Shearling is back in a big way this fall and this is a classic example from Chris!, the renowned German specialists. Masculine and rugged, it also offers unsurpassed comfort.
Corneliani’s nanotechnology program imparts rare qualities to the wool twill gabardine fabric of this clean-cut topcoat. It’s stain-resistant, water-resistant and windproof – perfect for anyone who travels.
Here’s a camo field jacket in Belstaff’s familiar waxed cotton fabric, part of an exclusive capsule collection designed in collaboration with the famous Japanese streetwear brand Sophet. Eye-catching is the last thing traditional camouflage should be, but every rule has an exception.
Moncler built its considerable reputation on glossy, down-fifilled, quilted outerwear and that’s part of the story with this three-in-one hybrid. The hooded insert can be worn on its own, as can the smartly tailored, totally unlined topcoat in a rich, camel-coloured woolcashmere blend. Wear them together and you’ll be toasty as well as sharp.
One of the major trends this season is the return of the overcoat, but worn over a studiedly casual outfit rather than a suit. This BOSS navy Donegal herringbone overcoat, cut for a trimmer fit, illustrates the idea. The luxurious fabric is a blend of wool, silk, mohair and alpaca. Up close, the navy is flecked with blues and taupes, adding visual richness. We love the flash of colour when you turn up the collar.
