When it comes to your bigger sartorial investments, a little more consideration is needed to make the smart choice. Winter has finally arrived and the time for that new coat is now. One of those rare purchases where purpose matters as much as style, it’s important to weigh up all options: from fabrics to fit to the finer details that will really elevate your outerwear game.
Whether you favour a pure wool number, or you’re drawn to something a little more sports luxe, the latest editorial from Reiss has your Autumn outerwear all covered.
DOUGLAS: THE STATEMENT NUMBER If you’re really looking to flex your style muscles this season, the easiest way to do it is with dogstooth. The elegant Douglas overcoat marries a comforting wool-blend with a classic black-and-white stitching for a design that evokes your sense of style without seeming overbearing or too loud. The concealed button placket makes for a contemporary and clean finish.
GABLE: THE WOOL NUMBER Wool in fabric, warm by nature, the Gable coat captures that classic outerwear silhouette and infuses it with a touch of the now thanks to the modern cool of its camel colour. The lined pockets and simple button fastening make for an overall clean design that will last you a lifetime.
WHITTINGTON: THE CONSIDERED NUMBER For a different take on the standard grey coat, the Whittington offers something special thanks to its handsome salt-and-pepper finish. The overall grey tone, though, still allows you plenty of room to play with styling, whether you want to adapt it for the work commute or weekend excursions. Finer details, such as the raw edges, add modern touches to the overall design and silhouette.
