Cold weather is coat weather. And when it comes to winter dress, nothing has a bigger impact on your style than the coat you wear. This fall and winter it’s been all about the statement topcoat. Here’s an example.
In menswear, we often use the term “statement” to mean bold, wild, or even outrageous. And while that’s certainly one interpretation, it’s not the only one. There are a variety of ways to make a statement with a topcoat that don’t require you to be an “insider” or to possess an f— you attitude.
A statement topcoat can have a large lapel, be made with an interestingly textured fabric, have a unique silhouette, a not-messing-around fur collar, or a simple repeating pattern, or just be slightly longer than 3/4 length.
Thanks for reading.
