French Connection (or FCUK as they prefer to be known) has been on a steady decline to a lowest common denominator for a few years now, hitting rock bottom with those appalling FCUK you t-shirts. Do you own one? Hang your head in shame.
There’s only one way to go now – and they’re climbing back up slowly but surely with some smart winter wear, including this Andrews overcoat. It’s a herringbone wool mix, fully lined, ‘tailored’ (that probably means a slim fit) and with a concealed button placket, front and inner pockets and back vent. It’s made of 80% wool and 20% polyamide and reasonably priced at £160. Here’s hoping for more of the same in future.
