A duffle coat may have once been a staple item of Paddington Bear, but it’s an excellent way to embrace the taste for heritage clothing this season. The AllSaints Duffle Coat represents an effortless blend of classic with contemporary, and a superb statement piece for your winter wardrobe.
Available in Ink colouring, the coat is made using Italian cloth, with a contrasting British waxed cotton cloth for the under collar. Additionally, the cloth is bonded to make it water repellent, which makes it perfect for the unpredictable and often harsh British winter.
The asymmetry of the frontal opening gives the coat a stylish contemporary edge, while the buttons are made using real horn, and the toggles Italian wood. The tasteful clash of traditional and modern styling, along with British and Italian craftsmanship, makes for a highly unique piece.
AllSaints suggests complimenting the coat with a Bukowski Slim Fit Shirt, a Tonic crew T Shirt, Blythe Cigarette Jeans and Plateau Boots. Remember that winter gives you the opportunity to layer clothing, so you have a larger palette to work with when deciding on colours. Indigo is an excellent winter choice, and is complimented well by seasonally appropriate shades of burgundy, burnt orange and camel.
The Duffle Coat is available now from the AllSaints website and AllSaints stores. It is priced at £295.
