Following on from yesterday’s pea coat, here’s another timeless classic worthy of consideration – the Gloverall Classic 511 duffle coat.
Gloverall has been making duffle coats since 1959 – and the Classic 511 is their top-end model. Made of 100% wool, it’s slightly longer than the traditional duffle (just below the knee), has a detachable throat tab, a fixed shoulder cape for extra strength and warmth, cuff tabs with horn toggle, large pockets with flaps and front horn toggles with leather loop fastening.
As an investment that’s never going to go out of style, it’s worth the £219 price tag. But if that’s a bit rich for you, other Gloverall duffles start from £120.
