Happy new year everyone! I can not believe it is 2018 already and although it's only two days into it, I'm struggling to get fired up and back into the swing of things. I'm going to blame, working from home and the new season of Black Mirror for my procrastination. If you haven't already watched Black Mirror, you have to get started as it gives a warped view of the potential future we are facing. Such as robotic dogs taking over, body implants which gives your parents the ability to see where you are and what you are doing at all time and a society that functions solely on social media.
I'm not one for looking back at things I've done or achieved in 2017, although generally speaking has been a great year both for work and personal reasons and hopefully 2018 can live up to the high expectations I've already put on it! Later today I'm going to book flights to Tanzania which I've been planning and saving for about a year now and can not wait. So expect lots more beach pictures on instagram this year!
I woke up today at around 07:30am, it was cold and dark outside and after walking my dog Charlie I realised that although Christmas and New Year is over, it's too early to have one eye on Spring and warmer weather. So today in my first men's style edit for 2018, I wanted to showcase coats once more and in particular a new maroon pea coat from J by Jasper Conran that I purchased via Debenhams. The coat colour is unique and works incredibly well wearing it with brown, navy and black colours so is very versatile with all winter palettes. The coat is made from a wool mix, making it warm and cosy, design wise it's double-breasted with two rather bold lapels, contract coloured buttons and a herringbone inner lining. The cut/pattern of the coat is regular fit and the length is slightly longer than a suit jacket or blazer, halfway between your hips and knees.
This J by Jasper Conran - Maroon wool rich pea coat is now online at £105 down from £150 and is available is all sizes S, M, L & XL.
