These are the best overcoats under £1000

Stay warm in these wallet friendly woollen wonders

When it comes to autumn essentials, the overcoat has always reigned king. Ideal over a suit or with jeans, while great knitwear, sturdy boots and a refreshed collection of trousers and accessories are key, the overcoat is the one cold weather item you really can’t go without.

The problem is a well-tailored overcoat can also be a big investment and, although we’d all love to buy several grands worth of overcoat, that’s just not realistic for most men. However, you needn’t settle for substandard fabrics or shoddy construction to save money. We’ve scoured the market and compiled a list of the best overcoats that won’t break the bank.

Paul Smith Epsom Coat

Gloomy skies and cold weather don’t mean you have to dress solely in dark shades. A camel coat is a great traditional alternative to navy and grey and, if styled properly, can look even more sophisticated and refined than its darker counterparts. We’re big fans of Paul Smith’s Italian cashmere take. Finished with a soft black and turquoise culpro lining, it’s the perfect piece for wrapping up in until spring comes round.
