Not dissimilar to the coat worn by Benedict Cumberbatch in the TV series, which is presumably why the above is called the Sherlock Shawl Coat by John Lewis & Co.
Mainstream outerwear has long had a rich seam of vintage inspiration, with this Winter seeing a major comeback for the sixties look cape. Some high street designers are still finding plenty of inspiration from the style, as seen in this Sherlock Cape by Rocha.John Rocha.
With a trench coat inspired style, the look is kept classic with a fawn colouring and true retro detailing. The high collar, storm flap and epaulettes retain the military influence on original trench coats, while the cape cut and waist belt add some mid sixties design flair.
It's now available from Debenhams for £89.
