You probably already have a navy, black, or grey wool overcoat. The camel colored coat is something of a luxury. Nobody needs two coats. But if you’re an outerwear honk, then a camel colored coat is one of those things that might be on your list.
Winter is coming to a close, and a lot of us are about ready to move over to our lighter trench coat (more on that tomorrow). But the most famous resident of Gobbler’s Knob begs to differ about the imminent change in season. Even if we’re not in for six more weeks of winter, a camel colored coat is light enough in color to not look too out of place if the temps are just barely dipping below freezing.
So. End of season, a slightly abnormal design, and a color that’s not what most men reach for. That all makes for $200 off a coat that looks to be a perfect length, has well placed hand pockets, and comes from a designer that usually leans towards closer, less boxy fits. Ships and returns free through Nordstrom.
Some of you guys always keep the collar on your overcoats at attention as it is. But what about a funnel/stand up type like this? Sorta risky, but this might be the right color and price for a risk. Or, completely not.
So would you wear it? Or is the collar just too odd? A more traditional version in Navy and Black is also on sale from Ben Sherman, although those have epaulets, lower flap pockets, and a lot going on…
