I love looking at men’s collections as the tailoring is usually impeccable. This season it is all about the coats and that for me is magic because I good coat can transform a man’s outfit from bland to becks, and Rag & Bone have not disappointed.
This is delightful. Only guys can get away with looking good in such a large piece of material, so it’s nice to see the detail on the collar which makes it stand out.
This is army chic without the camo. Honestly, if you are out in public wearing camo and are not on your way home from the forces or a themed night out, then you are a certified nut job. This coat on the other hand allows you to have the same effect but not be avoided in the street. The cuff detail is wonderful, the huge collar is delightful and that ‘oh, this old thing?’ effect on the material makes it look like a loved item.
If it wasn’t for the coat in this outfit it would have been torched. That waist coat is disgusting and I’m not even going to pass comment on the tadpole trousers. The jacket would look amazing on top of a dark blue suit; it would tell the world that you damn well know how to dress.
This is one of my favourite looks from the collection (ult fave is coming next). The detail of this coat is perfect, the jumper underneath is very Fredrick Made in Chelsea, but the combination works wonders.
If you can put this on, look in the mirror and genuinely know you look good, then you are suave. This coat is such a lovely colour and the combination with the fur on the collar makes it totally fabulous.
I’m not sure why the stripes suddenly got involved, but here they are. I don’t like this as it looks too feminine, despite the shape being very masculine. The plain colours are actually more effective at being appealing due to the tailoring and the cut speaking for itself; the stripes just interfere with the design.
Moral of the story, invest in good coats men.
