With the sudden drop in temperature lately, many men are starting to feel the initial effects of the fall weather. This is the perfect reason to invest in a custom overcoat.
Overcoats are the outer layer of your attire and should keep you warm and comfortable for these colder months. In this article we've selected the 2 basic variations to showcase, as well as a handful of details so that you may have a better understanding of what to look for in overcoats before coming in to customize your own.
[Classic & Timeless]
Single Breasted Overcoat
The most classic and timeless look is the single breasted overcoat. Simple, sophisticated and elegant, many men opt for deep navy, charcoal grey or black coats for a neutral tone to match any style. Camel is another popular option for a rich, sophisticated look.
If you are investing in your first overcoat, we would recommend a notch lapel and slanted pockets for a clean and versatile garment. The coat shown has a thick notch lapel for an elevated level of sartorial style.
Double Breasted Overcoat
The double breasted overcoat is a stylish look with more fabric coverage that provides a closer fit and more warmth. The overlapping fabric creates a leaner silhouette while the 6x2 button style lends a more detailed aesthetic.
Some double breasted overcoats may have more buttons and a higher button stance for more warmth and protection. The coat shown features patch pockets for a more casual look, however, there are plenty of pocket variations and details to add to a double breasted coat.
Take a look below at 4 simple examples of the vast variety of options for unique and stylish overcoat customizations.

Contrasting collar for a formal look and warmth.
[Turn Up Cuff]
A folded cuff for extra weight prevents buckling.
These are just a few examples of the many customizations you can add to your coat for a personalized and practical garment. The truth is that all of these details have a practical benefit to them that will help you stay comfortable and warm this fall/winter.
