Many of you have asked us for advice on men's winter coats. Which material? Which cut? How to recognize a quality coat?
And we understand why. The coat is the centerpiece of our wardrobe when fall/winter arrives. A piece that we will wear every day to fight against low temperatures.
It therefore introduces two important things:
you have to find a coat versatile enough to wear it with everything
it is necessary to be sure to invest in quality (it is an expensive part)
THE RAW MATERIALS FOR A GOOD MAN'S COAT
1. WOOLEN COATS
When you want warmth, nothing better than a fur coat (there are several varieties). It is an insulating fabric even in rainy weather, breathable and comfortable. And it adapts well to the shape of the body.
To recognize a quality wool sheet, it must be dense and slightly stiff.
We therefore avoid polyester and acrylic. Or really very little: at least 70% wool!
When we add a synthetic material in small proportion (less than 10%), it is possibly to improve the hold of the piece. But beyond that, it indicates that the wool chosen is a lower quality fur.
Let me explain! If we add synthetic to strengthen the piece, it means that the fur chosen is a short fur of second choice, or that it is recycled. A qualitative wool with longer fibers is sufficient by itself.
