Outerwear Autumn/Winter 2012

Running the gamut from coats you’d be comfortable in heading down to the local pub as well as the classic overcoat you’ll want over a fine suit, these outerwear selections for autumn/winter will have you covered whatever the occasion might call for.

First up is the Barbour Corbridge waxed jacket a utility jacket that has been updated with what Barbour calls a brand new engineered fit. Whether you call this slim fit or tailored keep this cut in mind the next time you’re contemplating a purchase from this brand. Features a weatherproof medium weight 6oz Barbour Sylkoil wax outer with Polarquilt lining throughout. Part of the Lifestyle collection £229.95.

Next from Reiss is the Draper single breasted notch lapel overcoat in a light grey with a three button fastening to the front. The length is three quarters and features sleeves with a fully functioning three button cuff, two flap close pockets to the hips, darts to the front of the body and single vent to the back £229.95.

Hackett London brings us the stormwear double breasted flannel Reefer jacket, in bonded wool, that plays on seafaring good looks in a nice neutral grey that gets away from the usual navy seen in this style of coat £450.00.

Finally we have the (dare we say) elegant  slim fit herringbone Retro coat from Crombie made from a pure wool cloth that is much lighter than traditional Melton, gives this coat a wonderful fluid movement that makes it wearable through the seasons. It features a tonal lining instead of the usual signature red of the standard Retro coat and is finished with Crombie laser-etched real horn buttons £995.00.
