Double-Breasted Coat





This is not the usual type of coat I would wear as it’s very masculine! However, I thought I needed to add this style to my closet. When I bought it, I was still unsure, and by the next day, I was contemplating returning it. Finally I decided to keep it and although I’m not totally convinced – I’ve worn it almost every day. I love the longline silhouette. The coat is practical and I’m sure I’ll be wearing it for a few years as it’s a classic.

It is double-breasted and military inspired with a check pattern and have two large patch pockets. It has no lining, so I do need to wear a thick sweater under. For colder tempertaures a warmer coat is needed. I do believe I made the right decision  to keep it. I wouldn’t say I love it, but it has grown on me – if you know what I mean!

This double-breasted coat is versatile. It can be worn to the office or at weekends. It works with tailored clothing as well as jeans and boots.

    I love the look of this coat – would be good for a Scottish winter! Though maybe not for the coldest days if it’s unlined. Thanks for visiting The Glasgow Gallivanter.

      Hello Anabel, I’m happy you like the look of the coat. I think Scottish winter needs something a lot warmer. It’s cold in Switzerland but I know how bitter cold it gets there! thanks for stopping by!
