With the colder days now here no doubt everyone as done the same as us and hit the panic button for the Winter Coat search. This normally occurs once a year and it doesn’t get any easier as selecting that one outerwear piece that will become your best friend over the Winter months and will look after you protecting you from the elements. There’s a lot of weighing up to do, the design, the brand, the fabrication and so on, with this is mind and how sure you have to be here’s a investment you won’t look back at twice, the Canvas Overcoat by Folk Clothing is a great Winter option.
Having become a well known regular with us and being a well established Folk favourite, this mid weight overcoat is a novel design that encapsulates both classic features of a double breasted overcoat while being merged with contemporary styling. This modernist approach of a classic design by Cathal and the Folk team means the Canvas Overcoat is practical and versatile, while it’s a smart substantial winter option that will serve and protect during the height of Winter, it also has a removable button out padded chambray lining allowing the coat to be worn when the weather does decide to pick up, being in England we never usually get our hopes up.
To no surprise the Canvas Overcoat is full of Folk signature detailing, I say this because the beauty to all Folk’s pieces is the detailing is always subtle and functional, serving a function on the garment while always having a great attention to the detail. Crafted from a hardwearing 100% cotton from a Belgian supplier who has supplied their military for many years, the cut of this Overcoat is really workwear inspired with a wider, straighter body. With hand cut removable vegetable tanned leather straps, Corozo Nut Buttons, Folk embossed brass buckles (crafted by a small forge in the UK), Stitched underarm detailing, drawstring detailing and a ticket pocket that holds a iphone if that’s your mobile phone of choice, this Double Breasted Overcoat is a all-rounder, a name given to many but truly only applies to a selection, whether it be worn to the office during the week or to the pub at the weekend it’s good food for thought for that adventurous search that is the perfect Winter Coat.
