Donkey Jacket

Proudly made in England, our contemporary take on this classic piece ticks all the right boxes, and is sure to see you through even the harshest of snowball fights in style.

Designers often claim that they prefer the Autumn Winter season to Spring Summer. You might not agree as it means cold feet, runny noses, dark mornings and months before you’ll see the sun again. But if you hear them out before writing them off as lunatics, we're sure you’d agree as well. They would argue that the winter season allows them to work with great fabrics: heavy wools, elegant cashmeres, kooky tweeds and amazing leather with shearling details. Nowhere else in your wardrobe is that as obvious as with your jackets and coats, the flag bearer of any winter collection. Outerwear garments mean heavier fabrics can be used and thinner materials can be layered on top of each other, creating new and exciting silhouettes. As a result the designer gets more body surface to play with.

The double-breasted overcoat is excellent for more formal occasions, perfectly swallowing up a slim suit underneath. A luxe shearling collar adds attitude and allure in equal measures. Going for a more classic look, a David Niven-esque feeling of old school coolness? Well, that’s the camel duffle coat for you then. Finally, if you are in the mood for some pure attitude dripping with heritage and rock ‘n’ roll DNA, then there’s only one alternative: channel your inner Kevin Rowland in this Donkey jacket. You’ll be shouting ‘Geno, Geno, Geno’ as you walk the streets in a merry mood. Just make sure you do it quietly in your head – otherwise you’ll be celebrating Christmas alone, in a padded cell.
