There are a number of reasons why we all need a classic coat for all seasons. The unpredictably of the British weather being an obvious one, holidays to different climates and to save money to name a few. For your all season coat, you need to go for classic styling and a colour palette that will go with most outfits. This coat will get a lot of wear so buy an investment piece that will last season after season.
Okay so you only have to compare yesterday and today to realise that our weather can be wacky pretty much all of the time. To combat these changes in temperature my choice of an all-season coat would need to have medium weight fabric such as cashmere and ideally look just as awesome buttoned up in the autumn/winter and undone in the spring/summer months. I would then look into the style of the coat. Something tailored and classic that can be styled smart, smart casual and casual with jeans - for me the long knee length overcoat is perfect. Finally what colour? You can not go wrong with navy, camel or grey...always in style and completely versatile.
Hawkins & Shepherd are currently selling these limited edition British cashmere investment overcoats. They are expensive, but they are an investment that will last season after season and will not disappoint.
