“Suddenly like a cold wind overnight, thousands of trees and flowers”, this winter seems to come later than before, although late but arrived, cold winter, in addition to down jackets, in fact, a warm coat that is good to wear and not bloated can also calmly cope with some more formal occasions. Fanyy today will share the selection strategy of men’s coats from several aspects such as fabric, style and length.
1. Fabric material
The material of the coat not only determines the warmth of the clothes, but also directly affects the comfort of a garment. Common coat materials are inseparable from wool, cashmere, albaka, etc., and the texture of these fabrics is also very different due to the different raw materials.
Wool is the most common material, wool from the body of sheep, woven fabric has good warmth, the price is also moderate, is the most common fabric in coats.
The raw material of cashmere fabric is the fluff from the goat, which feels delicate, soft texture, strong luster, and is warm and light to wear, and the comfort is better than that of a wool coat.
Alpaca fabric refers to the fabric woven with alpaca wool, the fiber on the surface of the fabric is longer than cashmere and wool fabric, soft and delicate touch, good warmth, in a few high-end brand coats will use Alpaca material fabric or blended fabric.
Most men choose the most wool or cashmere coat, the same kind of wool or cashmere fabric can not be judged by parameters, can only rely on their own eyes and hands to find, generally good fabric surface gloss, feel soft hands.
Second, the style selection
Men’s gentleman’s styles are basically classics, always so durable that they won’t go out of style. When men choose a coat, it is also the most attractive classic model, and then I recommend a few classic designs for men’s coats.
1. Chatchester coat
The Chatchester coat can be regarded as an extended version of the suit, also divided into single-breasted and double-breasted, a one-piece back, lapels, the cutting method is the same as the suit, the design is relatively simple, there are not too many complicated elements, the calm style is suitable for business people to choose, and it is also the most suitable coat style to wear outside the suit.
The following single-breasted coat is made of pure wool fabric, the fit is more slim, and the length of the long hand is more suitable for business occasions, and business elites who need to wear a suit for winter work can buy one of these business coats to wear outside the suit to keep warm.
2. Balmaken coat
The Balmaken coat can be seen as a Malmaken trench coat replaced with a fabric with better warmth, using raglan sleeves, small lapels, concealed buttoned placket, removing the back of the rain cover, the cut of the coat is loose, not paying attention to the waistline, the length of the clothes is generally to the knee position, the appearance is more brief than the Chatchester coat, and the style is calm.
Many Malmaken have now made improvements in the sleeves, turning raglan sleeves into regular sleeves, while other elements remain. This kind of navy blue, solid color coat is suitable for business people, and the checked Malmaken coat style is more casual, and it is also very good to wear with casual pants.
3, polo coat (Polo coat)
Polo coat at first glance looks like the style of pajamas, so the design is completely related to the original wearer of the polo coat, as the name suggests polo coats are for polo players, in order to keep warm when resting, in order to wear and take off the convenience of replacing the buttons with a belt, the left and right pieces of the clothes can be mixed together, better warmth. The back has dark pleats and a middle slit for easy movement. The pockets are patch pockets with a casual style.
Among these coats, the polo coat is the most complex to make, consumes the most fabric, takes the longest working hours, and has the most casual style, suitable for daily wear. Now some custom shops have turned the belts that many men cannot accept into ordinary buttons, and a fixed belt has been added to the back. Many polo coats now look the same as double-breasted coats on the front, but the back is very different, and the double-breasted coats have no dark folds on the back and no belt.
4. Horn button coat
Even if you didn’t wear it when you were a student, you must have seen this horn-shaped coat, which is the horn-buttoned coat that once swept the campus. Originally a British Navy uniform, the horn coat was designed with woolen fabric, hood and horn buckles to protect against the cold and wear. Later, it gradually became a fashion item that young people liked, and although the appearance rate in recent years was relatively low, its fashionable retro style daily wear is still very good-looking.
Third, pay attention to the length of the coat
In addition to the fabrics and styles mentioned above, it is also necessary to pay attention to the length of the coat. Coats generally come in short versions that cover the hips one finger length, mid-length ones that cover the knees upwards, and long ones that cover the knees.
Short coats are more suitable for wearing alone, with sweaters or shirts, not suitable for wearing outside suits, because the length of suits is generally about the same length as short coats, and the two appear to have no layering when worn together. Cropped coats can be handled by men of any size, and there are not too many requirements for height, so you can choose with confidence.
Medium-length coats are the most common style, generally speaking, the length of the clothes will be about 15cm longer than the suit, at the knee position up, can be used as a warm jacket outside the suit, but also can be worn alone, and there are not too many requirements for height, relatively tall figures look better to wear.
Long coats are generally length at the knee level, almost can wrap the whole body, excellent warmth, the style is relatively casual, the requirements for the figure are relatively high, the height must be about 180cm to be able to control such a length of coat, short men don’t try.
Suit customization, coat customization, Fanzy haute couture, the cold winter will last for several months, the cashmere coat of the winter essential artifact, read the above strategy I believe you already have the chosen direction of the coat, then don’t hesitate anymore, hurry up to add a warm coat to your wardrobe!
