THE CLASSIC CAMEL COAT

Quintessential Italian charm, beautiful fabrics and signature good looks mean this camel coat will really stand the test of time, says menswear editor Ian Wright

Whether seen on the backs of the suave Florentine gents, stars of the silver screen or even slickly dressed rappers, the camel coat is a true menswear classic. And when it’s constructed in a fine camel hair and wool to exacting Italian standards, it’s easy to see why the style enjoys such evergreen appeal. Unusual for a statement item, it’s actually incredibly versatile – typically seen as the ideal overcoat atop a sharply cut suit, the camel coat is also equally at home over less formal trousers and even slim jeans for weekends away or more casual occasions. This double-breasted design with a confident wide lapel is also a great length, finishing mid-thigh to ensure a neat and tidy look. No wardrobe is complete without one.
