You’ve got to hand it to custom men’s clothier Indochino – they know how to create stylish looks that’ll fit a variety of tastes. Whether you’re looking for a classically styled suit, or a blazer that’ll help you stand out from the crowd, they’ve probably got what you’re looking for. Their latest outerwear collection is no exception. With more than 20 coats to choose from, you’ll be able to find exactly what you need to complete any cold weather look. In addition to the outerwear, they’ve also released a line of 100% mongolian cashmere scarves in 6 different colors.
We asked Indochino to let us try the Essential Black Military Coat and an Olive Green Mongolian Cashmere Scarf on for size, and you can see the results here.
It’s the little things that always impress me with Indochino’s products. Details you wouldn’t find in clothing you purchased elsewhere (that in some cases cost much more), you’ll find in the garments they put together. The military coat($349) is made from a blend of wool and cashmere, which looks sturdy and well put together while still feeling soft to the touch. Inside the coat, you’ll find a quilted lining that you customize with the color of your choice, as well as a few well placed pockets and a removable suede scarf loop. The neck enclosure protects against the elements, and just looks really cool with the attached metal buckle.
You can also get an optional belt if you’d like, but for big guys, I’d recommend skipping it as it has a tendency to segment your body in a way that isn’t quite as flattering.
The Mongolian cashmere scarf ($99) is a great addition, and if you’re just starting to become adventurous with colors, the fact that these scarves are all solid colors is perfect for you. Indochino guarantees that each scarf is 100% cashmere, and you can certainly tell when you wrap one around your neck; They’re warm and soft, and won’t leave your neck itchy like some lesser quality products do. Though I’m a fan of the green, you can also choose from purple, red, gray, and two shades of blue.
As we always mention when talking about Indochino, the best part about the company is that your clothing order is custom made to fit you, so you know it’ll be exactly what you’re looking for. If for some reason, you need it altered, they offer a $75 alteration credit that you can use at your local tailor. They’re doing a lot to make it easy for you to order clothing to your exact specifications.
If you’re looking for a coat for colder weather (or a gift for some other lucky gent in your life), consider Indochino’s outerwear collection for high quality, great looking clothing in the sizes you need.
