The Coat Room

We once got into a rather spirited debate with a luxury coffee manufacturer who couldn’t understand designer menswear. While the evening may have been enveloped in a whisky induced haze we do remember a particularly good comeback of ours, “But have you ever put on a tailored designer coat? Felt the perfect structure instantly lift your posture, the smooth lining slipping against your skin, stroked the soft arms and sides. Then you’ll understand.” Sadly we didn’t have visual aids on hand in the form of Saint Laurent naval coats, or Haider Ackermann long metallic weave styles or a two-tone Dries Van Noten single breasted number. If we had, he surely would have been instantly converted.
