Big fan of cord at this time of the year, so of course I’m all over the John Simons made in London corduroy overcoat.

To be honest, I could have picked out more than just the cord one. There is a range of overcoats at the iconic retailer right now, with a few finishes to pick from.

All are based on a vintage Burberry model ‘famously purchased and worn’ by John Simons back in 1961, whilst he was learning his trade in the clothing business. Specifically, as a window dresser for Cecil Gee on Charing Cross Road.

That look, feel and shape has been adapted for the modern era and offered once more and for me, the cord really stands out. I love a bit of cord and it’s rarely seen on an overcoat. Which is why it literally jumps off the page.

Not just any cord, the coat is produced from the finest fawn-coloured Brisbane Moss corduroy fabric, giving it a great look and plenty of warmth too.

As for the all-important details, the coat has that 1950s A-shape, as well as a one-piece raglan sleeve, Cupro satin lining, Selvyt cloth-lined side pockets with buttons, adjustable cuffs and a centre vent, along with mostly hidden buttons at the front.

Just lovely. Available in three shades, you can buy one online for £495.
