A Coat for All Seasons

FEATURE: LONG READ
Words by ABIGAIL GURNEY-READ

If you’ve seen one coat you’ve seen them all, right? Wrong! As diverse as they are essential, coats hold the power to make or break an outfit. Join us on an expedition through the new season’s most investment-worthy pieces.

The Puffer Jacket

One man’s down coat is another man’s puffer jacket. Despite their semantic differences, the two styles occupy one very common ground. Consider each to be the Swiss Army knife of outerwear, defined by a fastidious attention to performance and practicality. Down-filled quilting is the ultimate insulation against winter’s icy reception; many of the leading brands, from Moncler to Canada Goose, utilise polyamide fabrics that are resistant to both wind and water. If you’re looking for something more directional in mood, the likes of A-Cold-Wall* and Studio Nicholson rework the blueprint into previously unseen shapes.

The Camel Coat

What Italians don’t know about tailoring isn’t worth knowing. The likes of Milanese brand Eleventy set the standard in immaculately crafted camel coats – the pinnacle of outerwear refinement.

The Statement Coat

Bold outerwear is your ticket out of autumnal wardrobe conundrums. Because, when your coat is Casablanca red shearling, you’re always onto a winner. If prints are your jam, Valentino and Hurlingham Polo – new to Harrods for AW21 – have some great options. When in doubt, let your coat do the talking.

The Tailored Coat

You might have archived your three-piece suit, but a tailored overcoat is – and will always be – an outerwear mainstay. Prime examples combine Savile Row savoir faire with an altogether more contemporary approach; Jil Sander, for one, scales up the size and softens the cut. Simple yet striking.

The Belted Coat

When it comes to belted coats, a Burberry trench – the lifeblood of British outerwear wardrobes since World War I – is the first port of call for gents of a classic disposition. Its lightweight-yet-hardy cotton gabardine construction makes for a supremely versatile layer. If your vibe is more contemporary, Kassl Editions arrives at Harrods this season with a new outerwear proposition that’s part puffer, part blazer and part robe – ideal for in-between climes. Very modern, very appealing.
