A smart silhouette in traffic-stopping checks – this overcoat is top of our lust list

It’s not easy, is it? Picking a coat, I mean. After all, it needs to tick a lot of boxes. I want mine to feel the right side of stylish; be practical enough that it does the job of keeping me snug; be versatile enough to wear with no less than half my wardrobe and, of course, fit like a glove. Too much to ask? Definitely not. Step forward this wonderful double-breasted object of desire. The checks are bang on trend (and yet timeless), the collar keeps things smart while the loose silhouette makes it effortlessly wearable all weekend, too. And the midi cut length is chic, and cold weather-repellent. In short, it’s the coat you’ve been waiting for. Snap it up, quick.
