Do you own an old and faithful coat that you keep wearing, knowing that it’s time to buy a new one? Well, here’s a coat you can add to your wardrobe and integrate its use. The good old duffle coat has been revamped in so many ways that you can find a version of it that will suit your needs.

Did you know the duffle coat’s hood was designed to accommodate naval caps and its toggle and cord closures; so that it could be easily operated wearing gloves?

Years later impoverished students snapped them up and wore them to coffee houses, wine bars and jazz clubs. The style has also been perceived as signifying ‘rebel’ but more recently edgier duffles have hit runways.

Valentino and Lanvin are leading the duffle comeback playing with creative colours, designs and quality fabric.
