Hello everyone.
Winter is here, the cold too and I need a coat to protect from the cold but with a good look too.
I was thinking about Duffle Coat.
I plan to use it casually but I also wish I could use it in more informal situations like a lunch / dinner out, to go to some events etc.. is the duffle coat a good choice?
Thanks

At first I was looking for a Gloverall but later I discovered on a recommendation the Original montgomery which costs half the price and seems to be of good quality, although not some details like the flaps in the pockets.
Could anyone have had such a coat tell me if it really is a good buy?

If it were my choice, I'd get a Gloverall. The "original montgomery" version seems too short, to me.

Short is not, is the traditional size, has 96cm will hit me by the knee.
As I see it, there are flaps on the pockets, buttons on the sleeves, and it's made of 70% wool and 30% mix fibers.

I just have to choose his color now, and I'm between navy and camel.
What should I consider besides my wardrobe to choose one of these colors?

I’ve just bought one of these for my four year old daughter. The workmanship looks quite good and the look is the spot on traditional British thing. Personally, I’d go for a 100% wool fabric though.

I found a few 100% there.
Even the most gloveralls are 80%.
I also prefer 100% wool but this one for the price (£ 150) I think it's a good deal
