In this series, we unpick what makes an essential piece of clothing perfect, and highlight our favourite styles of the season.
In our book, there are a few requirements that need to be met by outerwear for it to be deemed ‘perfect’. The first and most important (perhaps) being warmth. Unless you are so bloody minded in your pursuit of style that warmth and comfort are the last thing on your mind. In fact, if style is first on your agenda, then warmth and comfort may even be bywords for weakness when it comes to choosing your coat. We salute you, sir. However, we think something in between is probably best. We’re big proponents of form and and function when it comes to outerwear. And here we are again – contemplating the subjective nature of perfection. Regardless, here is a rundown of a few key elements necessary for the accolade – no-matter your preference. We tailor to all tastes, shapes and requirements here – one man’s fashion zenith is another man’s ‘dear god that’s fugly and/or completely impractical’. So, for ease, we’ve broken it down below to help you find your perfect jacket for autumn.
