Military style has consistently come in and out of style among men’s coats, with the most memorable surely being Sgt. Pepper’s. While there’s been many a catwalk coat inspired by that look, it isn’t exactly wearable for most of us.
Avoid looking a bit Adam Ant with a more understated, yet still retro style look. This wool/cashmere blend coat from John Lewis has just the right amount of military embellishment. Using a square shouldered shape, high structured collar and epaulettes, this is a sleek and perennially stylish take.
It’s available online or in shops from John Lewis for £220.
