A year and a half ago, I only had two coats that I would wear all of the time, a black leather jacket and a navy pea coat. They ticked all of the boxes…so I thought. Fast forward to the present Carl and he is a little bit ‘coat obsessed’. How can I go from being content with wearing my navy pea coat with absolutely every outfit possible and thinking it looks great to having more coats and jackets than I have boxer shorts (I actually do!). What have I become? I blame Sophie. She is a coat person and has somehow brainwashed me into being the same, pea, trench, camel, shearing, denim, tick tick tick and now even one colour will not do. Because of course you need a denim shearling jacket in tan suede, black denim and mid-wash denim (insert manly hand up emoji here).

During AW15 I plan my outfits based on one investment piece and more often than not it is great coat. This season Zara have some exceptional jackets and coats for men and right now most are in their Winter Sale.

My outfit of the day comprises of a Zara window pane coat, a ASOS cable knit navy jumper which I brought a size too big so it could appear oversize. Finished off with ASOS black rip jeans and Topman black boots.
