In this week's video we take a look at some stylish Men's outerwear. The north east has had a mild November/December so far so a lot of us are still wearing fall coats and its been great. It's only a matter of time before the temperatures start to drop and we will need to break out the super warm coats.
Here is a quick recap of the styles shown in the video:
1. Top Coat - this is certainly the best option over a suit but don't be shy to wear it over a more casual look, just make sure its not oversized otherwise you may be mistaken for Keanu Reeves in the Matrix
2. Double Breasted Pea Coat
I really like the military influence of this look and really enjoy the really fitted style
3. Duffle Coat
A duffle coat, is a coat made from duffel, a coarse, thick, woollen material. The name derives from Duffel, a town in the province of Antwerp in Belgium where the material originates. Duffle bags were originally made from the same material. This is a neat style with some really cool variations out there.
4. Shearling coat.
Shearling is a skin from a recently sheared sheep or lamb that has been tanned and dressed with the wool left on. This style has made a strong comeback this season so you will see a lot of them this winter.
5. Puffer Jacket
A puffer jacket’s trademark is its sectioned or quilted design. The coat’s exterior is comprised of a number of puffy sections that are separated by seams and are filled with down or a synthetic material that is intended to provide warmth to the wearer. The jackets are typically both light and warm, unlike heavy wool coats.
A parka or anorak is a type of coat with a hood, often lined with fur or faux fur. The hood protects the face from freezing temperatures and wind. The Caribou Inuit invented this kind of garment, originally made from caribou or seal skin, for hunting and kayaking in the frigid Arctic. Some Inuit anoraks require regular coating with fish oil to retain their water resistance.
