So as many of you who follow me on Instagram know that I always post pictures about wearing a nice jacket/coat with your suit and not ruining your outfit by wearing any random jacket. Well if you don’t follow me on Instagram you should know that generally the first thing people see you in is your coat, if it’s an ugly one then your outfit has failed.
When I walk into work or into an event people notice my jacket first then my suit so make sure you have a good one. There are many different types of coats and jackets you can wear but I very strongly recommend a trench coat for three main reasons.
- Keep you nice & warm.
- Look amazing over suits.
- Come in so many different styles and colours to suit your personality.
My most recent and probably my favourite trench coat is the Navy Single Breasted Coat With Faux Fur Collar from Next. I really love this coat, probably because I get five to ten compliments a week about my coat. I have even been told I look like Denzel Washington in American Gangster with it on. Not to mention the wool and the fur keep me ridiculously warm while walking to work and getting rained on or the wind tries to blow me away. This is definitely one of my favourite purchases this year and considering its the 28th of December, that’s a pretty good achievement.
You are probably wondering how much it costs, it’s a wonderful £99 well you could probably get a cheaper lower quality trench coat from Topman for £50 but I’m hoping you won’t do that to yourself.
Please note this coat is slim fitted so if you’re a big guy I would definitely suggest trying on it on first, it fits almost the same way a suit fits.
59% wool 33% polyester 8% other fibres. Lining and collar 100% polyester.
UPDATE: I’ve had some people ask if you can take the fur off – No you can’t & why would you want too?
