Pick of the Week:
Finding and buying a good winter coat is no small task. Good outerwear during the colder months needs to be versatile enough to be worn with everything — formal or casual — day or night — and still look good whilst keeping you from freezing.
With the weather well and truly committing to winter, why not beat the chill in our pick of the week: the ‘Blazer- Duffle Coat‘.
It is interesting to note that the origins of the Duffle Coat can be traced back as far as 1887, when it was popularized during World War Two. A British purveyor of outerwear, John Partridge had began to design and offer the Duffle coat for sale only a few years later.
According to Gentleman’s Gazette, soon after World War Two, the Royal British navy was searching for a hard-wearing, sailor-proof coat, and so the British Admiralty commissioned the Duffle coat, which turned out to be a great success and was thereafter worn on military ships around the world.
