Take these traditional British-made duffel coats: great for teaming with jeans, cords, leggings and skirts, they're inspired by a timeless design that's more than 100 years old. So what's made Montgomery Duffels so popular for so long? The answer is reassuringly oldfashioned: quality materials, quality tailoring and painstaking attention to detail.
The warm wool-rich fabric is double-faced woven, meaning the outer and the chequered lining are woven together (unlike inferior versions which are glued). This is then skilfully tailored for a flattering line and ease of movement. The toggles are genuine buffalo horn and the thongs are made from hand-sewn leather.
Finished with three pockets plus a draughtproof hood, Montgomeries, worn by military officers in two World Wars, are acknowledged as the finest true duffel coats in the world. Demand is sure to be enormous, so act fast to avoid disappointment. The Short duffle is fitted, and a true reflection of the size quoted.
