I going to elaborate further on this exquisite French Connection Deluxe Pile Coat as it's drawn a lot of attention on my Instagram feed. Firstly, it's a double breasted wool-blend with a heavily textured look. A lot of bloggers and sartorialists will tell you never to wear a double breasted open, which is true for suit jackets and long coats as they will lose their shape under the unevenness of the fabric.
However, this is more peacoat in size and I can wear it open because we live in a free society and you're not the boss of me. Sorry, I'm feeling uncharacteristically defensive today.
Secondly, it's super luxurious and the fabric has a gorgeous supple quality to it. It's a loose, non-constricting fit and the large collars really draw focus to the face. 'Vanity, always my favourite sin' - Al Pacino. The Devil's Advocate. (By the way my predictive text wanted me to say The Devil's Avocado which I thinks sounds like a much more interesting film).
In a rich grey hue the coat promises versatility, providing the perfect finishing touch to your winter wardrobe. I have paired this with mutual dark colours to emphasise the broodiness, yet styled with white sneakers brings a little contrast to the ensemble.
This French Connection Deluxe Pile Coat is currently on offer through the French Connection website, reduced from £250 to £200. Only available in Black.
