Silas x London Tradition Duffle Coat

By Laura on November 17th, 2011

The duffle coat truly is a classic winter staple. It’s popularity can be traced back to the British Military for introducing and perfecting the design.

One of the best duffel coats we have seen so far this year has to be the collaboration between Silas and Maria and their British cohorts, London Tradition. Made in England, this shortened, hooded classic features horn toggle fastenings, and a tartan lining.

Over all it is a beautiful, conventional, expertly crafted duffle, that is bound to last you years.
Available in both grey and navy colorways this jacket will set you back £329.
