Winter Style: Coats For The Discerning Gent

Winter Is Coming…


Let’s face it. October isn’t going to be an extension of the Indian summer the discerning gent was blessed with in September. In fact, the next few months, most likely until late February, are going to be wet, dark and bitterly cold. However, amongst all the gloom there is a ray of positive light from all this…a new coat.


The discerning gent is thus presented with a problem: dress for function and be protected from the elements or forego function for style and look dapper as the wind chill bites. Fortunately such dilemmas are no longer an issue.


A number of fashion labels have suitable sartorial lines that serve both purposes. After all, a discerning gent should never sacrifice an ounce of style to the cold British winter. Elysium Magazine runs the rule over the latest autumn/winter collections to showcase what the discerning gent should be wearing to keep the fashion stakes high when the temperate falls.

This single-breasted tweed coat from British Heritage brand James Aubrey strikes the right balance between quintessential British style and a contemporary cut. It is hand woven from 100% pure new wool in the colour moss, with contrast purple satin lining for the flash of colour when you need it.
