Just in time for the colder weather comes this Gloverall 1970s Archive cord duffle jacket.
Classic Paddington Bear-a-like duffle coats are always a worthwhile choice of retro outerwear, providing practicality and classic style all at once. There's always room for some variety, though, and with vintage looks like this Heart Duffle Coat from Miss Selfridge there's no compromise.
The peach-orange shade has an instantly mid-sixties look, along with the shortened a-line cut that's girly and dollish enough for a mod inspired style. The addition of faux fur in a rich cream shade adds some luxury to the coat, belying its High Street price tag, while bell sleeves are a cute touch.
Get it now from Miss Selfridge for £70.
The Gloverall Monty duffle coat is a classic and something we have covered numerous times in the past – but here's something a little different – the Gloverall Monty Detail short duffle coat.
Yes, it's a cut-down version of the wartime classic. It keeps the three wood and rope cord duffle fastenings, but cuts the length down for something more approaching a jacket. There's also two large pockets, a single inner pocket, a double button throat flap and an adjustable hood.
Made in England and from an 80 per cent wool mix, you can pick one up in black or navy for £219.
It's not something you see around too much these days, but the duffle bag is back from a rather unexpected source – Lyle & Scott.
Better-known as makers of heritage knitwear and casual gear, the company is also selling this eye-catching bag in a shade of 'french blue', complete with trademark Golden Eagle and white rope cord fastening.
Available online from Lyle & Scott, it sells for £55.

Duffle coats have become an undeniably classic wardrobe staple for both men and women, providing the perfect coat for everyday wear in the chillier months. This short version from Miss Selfridge provides a great option for those who months when full length is just too far.
Utilising the standard duffle fastenings, the coat's shape also leans on a sixties aesthetic, with a swing style silhouette. The A-line shape is ideally complimented by ruffled shoulders for added femininity, while the hood is both practical and appealing.
It's available now from Miss Selfridge for £50.
Think a duffle is just for winter? Not if you opt for the Gloverall Short Monty summer duffle coat.
Yes, the same timeless look, but adapted for the conditions. Which means a 'summer weight' for the 100 per cent cotton finish and a shorter profile, but you still get a zip front under the toggle fastening, an adjustable cuff tab and reinforced pockets.
Two colour options, both selling for £190.
