From the label that brought us the Harry Palmer raincoat comes another 1960s classic, this time a cold weather coat inspired by the smocks worn in the classic 1965 war movie The Heroes of Telemark.

Not some mass-produced item either. The Alpine Smock by Lancashire Pike is a bespoke garment, hand made and made to order. So the chances of seeing someone in one is fairly slim (although not impossible).

Colour choices are navy, a stone finish or a limited edition blaze orange if you want to stand out more from the crowd. As I said, it is bespoke, so you might want to factor that in if you want one for when the temperatures (that means order one quickly). As for the price, you are looking at £390.
