The Autumn Coats of Maketh the Man

Brace yourselves, the winter draws near! But whilst we’re still having those classic bipolar moments of sunshine, then wind, then more sunshine, allow us to take you through our autumn coat picks to defend against the elements:

The Camel Epson Coat

This is an immediate yes or us, given its immense level of popularity last season. With a camel Epson, you get the perfect balance of outerwear, perfect for formal or casual attire. This wool camel Epson comes from the Hammond & Co range by Patrick Grant and we love the fact it comes with a nice dash of cashmere too.

The Textured  Revere Collar Coat

In this divine season texture is fundamental in your dresscode, whether it’s the trousers, jumper or coat. On this occasion the importance of texture, is all about the coat. We discovered this fantastic revere collar coat from the M&S collection with a neppy surface. Perfect with a roll neck & jeans. Or smart trousers for a more formal look.

The Bomber Jacket

The reality is the good English weather is going to make us sweat it out a bit (literally) before it hits us with the real cold blast. So before the blizzard to come does arrive, keep a dark grey bomber by your side, for a less hardcore arctic explorer look. This bomber jacket, also from the Hammond & Co collection is ideal to match with both formal and casual outfits.

The Dogstooth Change Coat

There is no entry really needed when it comes to anything from Chester Barrie, as anything they bring to the menswear battalion, simply speaks for itself. Chester Barrie bring to us their change coat, made from 100% wool with a striking dogstooth design. When the colder weeks do creep up on us, this is perfect for layering with knitwear, keeping you warm with pure style.

Maketh The Man launched in 2010 as a home to showcase male jewellery. From the best chunky necklaces to our favourite signet rings. Whilst the Mark Twain quote does say "Clothes maketh the man", we actually think its the finer details that make an outfit really pop. Hence why we decided to focus our attention on how to accessorize your wardrobe.

We quickly expanded our coverage to include all accessories from the best footwear, to the most stylish bags and pocket squares.

Today Maketh The Man has grown to be one of the UKs top male lifestyle blogs covering a range of different categories. From the greatest holiday destinations to the tastiest cocktail or finest whisky recommendations, with a healthy dose of technology and grooming thrown in.
