You can't fake quality, especially in coats. The quality of the yarn, the weight of the cloth, and the fit of the silhouette all need to work in concert to create a coat that looks and feels good while protecting its wearer from the elements. In this case, we chose a cloth created by a mill that’s worked with the finest wool and cashmere yarns since 1767 — that level of experience and knowhow is unrivaled. The result is a 29.5 oz wool cloth that retains softness while providing a hard-wearing warm covering that will last a lifetime. The longer shape provides more coverage from the cold, with a higher lapel that can be turned up and buttoned closed on windy days.
