If you feel the cold, why not consider having an overcoat made. Overcoats can be tailored to suit any style you wish but we usually recommend single-breasted 4 button with notch lapels. The perfect length for an overcoat is down to the top of you calf muscle. Pockets can be slanted on the side or straight with flaps – always with a single center back vent.
We recommend a wool and cashmere blend from Holland & Sherry’s “Overcoat” book. They have a range of different weights, colours and patterns and are a perfect composition to keep the warmth inside the jacket.
Our favourite swatch books:
Overcoats by Holland & Sherry, 17-18oz Pure Khan Cashmere. This is for pure luxury (with matching prices!) Also 17-18oz Wool & Cashmere blend which is our top pick for an overcoat, all are made in England. Fabrics are plains
Precious overcoats by Bower & Roebuck, 18oz pure Camel Hair made in England, a great luxury overcoat cloth.
