The Sensible Sartorialist’s Menswear Guide To Surviving Spring
Two words: slouchy and fluid. These are the adjectives to ruminate over in the coat stakes for that bit between now and summer. Shapewise this is not complicated — just gravitate towards parkas, macs or a trench. Zara has a rather marvelous swingy, oversized belted trench with a detachable hood in khaki. At last month’s Henry Moore-inspired Burberry show, the brand’s signature trench coat was given a suitably winning slouchy remix – throw it over hacked-off jeans and an oversized shirt to see in spring with ease. Meanwhile, Parisian label Lemaire – faultless clothes that hang like a dream – championed an easy lightweight parka that can be worn with practically anything. The brand’s ongoing project with Uniqlo also offers up a shorter minimalist hooded anorak in off-white and olive. Usefulness rating: extremely. See more at Evening Standard.
