Since winter is here, ask yourself – how is your outerwear game looking?
Fine? Got it covered with a windbreaker and a bomber or two? Suit yourself.
With those with a little sartorial savvy, now is the ideal time to have your pick of this season’s outerwear abundance. There are so many different types of men’s coats and men’s coat styles, but one that is constant classic and has my heart is the ‘overcoat’.
The overcoat is one of those pieces in your wardrobe that you can always go back to, celebrated for its versatility and timeless nature. With its shape and cut, you’ll struggle to find an outfit that doesn’t go with it, well, maybe a few, but you get my drift.
When it comes to picking out the perfect overcoat, there are a few things you’ll need to consider. First, before anything else, it’s all about the fit for purpose. If it’s a casual overcoat you’re looking for, there’s a bit more flexibility in terms of the style and fit of the coat. When it comes to smarter fit, the suitability of your coat to your suit colors, the size of your coat to fit with your suit and of course the level of formality.
With all this in mind, I’m wearing a grey overcoat over a sweatshirt and jeans. Keeping the look simple and chic. It can also be worn smart over a shirt and trousers.
