The Wool Overcoat

The Wool Overcoat

How to pick and match one of the quintessential elements in a man’s wardrobe


hatever you like to throw on your clothes, there are a few pieces of outerwear that your wardrobe should never be short of, such as a stylish overcoat to wear over suits or office clothes on formal and semi-formal occasions.
Unless you opt for a super-fashionable style, an overcoat is something that will stay in your wardrobe for a very long time: after all, overcoats are not particularly subject to trends and they have not changed a lot since the invention of the very first modern overcoat, the Chesterfield, which dates back to the 1840s.

Because of its inherent timelessness and staying power, an overcoat should be chosen with great care in terms of quality, fabric, color and design. It is always a good idea to opt for classic cuts, fine wools that will allow them to last longer and patterns in neutral/dark colors that will make them versatile.

The Montedoro Overcoat And How To Wear It

Is there anything more timeless than houndstooth? This duotone pattern of small broken checks is the main feature of the Montedoro overcoat, a sophisticated piece of outerwear with a slightly vintage flair in warm tones of brown. Made from smooth and soft alpaca wool, this unique model revisits the formal overcoat by integrating classic elements like the double-breasted front and the back belt in a minimalist, contemporary layout.
To enhance the Montedoro overcoat’s smart casual character, we paired it with a sleek double-breasted unstructured jacket worn over a classic Zanone turtleneck and a pair of slim fit flannel Incotex trousers.
