Temperatures dropping? If you can’t afford to buy an original Gloverall duffle, then perhaps you should look at the wool blend duffle coats at Uniqlo.

Ok, it isn’t a 100 per cent wool Monty, but it doesn’t claim to be either. Of course, if you have the money and want the real deal, then I can heartily recommend you check out Gloverall for one of the most iconic coats on the planet. But the Monty duffle coat costs £450 and that’s a huge outlay for the majority of us.

So if you want the look and the warmth and are willing to compromise on a label, then you might want to have a look at Uniqlo’s offering, which hits the racks around this time of the year pretty much every year. It looks like a classic duffle coat, but it’s a fraction of the price. Job done for most of us.

Uniqlo has its duffle coat for men in just brown and navy blue this year, which might be a disappointment if you fancied the green one that tends to frequent its racks. But the two colours here are classic shades, so hard to complain.

Note a slightly different design this year too. Still warm and still fairly lightweight, but this year it has close-fitting sleeves to keep the cold air out, an added 4th toggle closure and a slightly narrower shoulder. A longer length too, which is essentially to help keep out the cold.

Same price though, with the coat available for £89.90.
