A BRIEF SURVEY OF HOW EURO MAN DEAL T WITH THE LAST WINTER.
Wintry chaps from Paris and Milan
Cold weather is fashionably late in Australia this year but presumably we’ll at least get a month or two where we can layer up against the elements.
Obviously men in Paris and Milan, where Lee Oliveira captured these images during the European Winter earlier this year, have much more opportunity to pull on the statement coat, the on point beanie and the handcrafted scarf for an outing in the town.
A serious coat is an increasingly important weapon in a man’s fashion arsenal – see our edit of some of the best options in our main fashion shoot beginning on page 120 of this issue. No matter what else you have on, the right coat adds a degree of polish and gravitas to your look that is becoming of a modern gentleman.
Our Esquire section this issue (page 82) has an instructive piece on the various styles of men’s coats down the ages which may also help you work out which one suits you best.
In our view a coat should be relatively simple – you can add interest and di erence through what you wear with it, like the men of Paris and Milan.
