Gloverall — “The Archetypal British Brand” — swoop in with their vintage Churchill peacoat/reefer jacket design, a nod to the former British prime minister and a celebration of a timeless item of clothing that has its origins in European and American naval uniforms. Unlike the more common navy blue or black peacoat, however, Gloverall have opted for an artful, smokey grey — mid-dark but not overbearing in colour. Made from 100% English Melton wool (wool which has been well fulled to allow for a pronounced thickness combined with a marked smoothness), Gloverall wisely stick close to the classic format of the peacoat otherwise — a shape which flatters the male silhouette through strong shape retention, a classic sweeping collar, and batten-down-the-hatches double breasted anchors buttons. The support of a loyal peacoat can really aid you in going out to face the world — professional, social and meteorological worlds alike — with maximum confidence. It makes for a savvy, versatile and personal investment — this is a coat to build a relationship with.
