If you’re still on the hunt for your dream winter coat, even after browsing through our beautiful selection of camel coats, you might?consider going double or nothing.

The original double-breasted coats were heavy, naval pea coats and had three button closures so that shorter men didn’t feel compromised. Presumably they were also cut short so the hems didn’t get soggy. Nowadays, double breasted coats come in all shapes, weights, textures and lengths. Sharp tailoring is super flattering and covers a multitude of potential sins beneath (you’ll always look smart if the outermost layer is neat).

Whether you go for a classic short navy number?or a voluptuous long one which will keep every inch of you warm,?you’ll?look the business.

Et voila: our?pick?of this season’s best double breasties for all price ranges. Remember, if you wish to get all the shopping details, ?go ‘fullscreen’ in the gallery.
