An overcoat should be found in each man’s wardrobe and under this section you will find several different seasonal coats but also so-called four season qualities. Whether it is winter coat in a thicker wool quality or a lighter variant in a water repellent ‘storm system’ material. So there is reason to invest a little extra in an overcoat that you will have great use for many years to come!
The overcoat is associated with autumn and winter. As it is often found in a wool or cashmere quality that is thick enough to withstand cold. What we strongly recommend as a complement to an overcoat for the winter is to also complement with a rain and wind resistant rock in the Loro Piana ‘Storm system’. This fabric is made from a technically advanced fabric, perfect as a transitional coat between seasons. The weight on the coat can be an important aspect as it determines the fabric’s ability to keep you warm. Our grades vary between 460-620g. And of course, a double-buttoned coat gives more fabric than a single-buttoned!
Obviously, dimensions and fit are central to our process, finding a unique and as good fit as possible for you as a customer. In general, we tend to advocate a silhouette that is tailor-made but still room for thicker qualities to wear. Not least with our Heavy roll neck. We also advocate an increased length of the rock. Partly to give a nice silhouette but also for the practical function that it simply resists cold better. These design choices affect the formality as a longer length generally becomes a more dressed look. Just as a shorter length gives a sportier feel. With us at Blugiallo, we always put your personal preferences at the center when we help you make the right choice according to your needs.
