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.
