#1858 Little Brother’s duffel coat is worthy of the hype

Introducing the most hyped jacket of the season: Little Brother’s now famous camel duffel coat (this bad boy has gotten more local press than a shamed All Black). I’ve had mine for about five weeks now, and I’ve gotta say all the attention is well deserved – you’re unlikely to find a better looking winter jacket for $399 NZD. My one caveat is that the sleeves are too tight to fit a blazer and a sweater underneath, and while you might not need all those layers here in Auckland, that may be a deal breaker for gentlemen in colder climes. For everyone else, I say go buy the jacket. It’s a classic piece that will last a long while. If the slim fit concerns you, go one size up – I’m wearing a small but the medium still fit; the extra small fits a size eight girl.

Full disclosure: I was gifted the Little Brother duffel coat by Barkers, but do keep in mind that I extolled its virtues weeks before this occurred.

I’m wearing: Little Brother for Barkers duffel coat, Standard Issue sweater, Bedwin and the Heartbreakers shirt from Qubic, Crane Brothers trousers, Converse Chuck Taylors.
