I'd like to redesign the site so I'm holding back on the posts. Ciao.

Time for the winter wrap up! Gone are the days of excitedly regurgitating the fact that this is the hottest November on record for ages to whomever will politely pretend they haven't heard the newsflash already, a 'proper' coat is needed. Single or double breasted, sheerling is a winter winner.
Burberry Prorsum (who have recently seen a massive growth in sales of late) proves classic luxury fabrications and heritage design are key to executing this stylish trend. Easy to do with a rabbit draped around ones neck, giving this wool and cashmere blend overcoat shear pazzazz.
Not to be outdone by the Brits, not that fashion is a competition or anything, The largest cashmere manufacturers globally, Loro Piani have made dolly into a delectable suede and 100% lamb skin coat. This must feel amazing to wear! One can dream...
Bringing up the shear, sorry... rear good old Ralphy (Purple Label) has brought us this deliciously dark Spanish sheerling made in Italy. I think Del Boy and Rodders will agree that dark and lovely is the way to go with sheep lined coats, Only Fools and Horses would disagree.
All available at Mr Porter

Mark McMahon is a bit of a renaissance man. He is a consultant, a stylist, designer and experiences in fashion PR. I am in no position to say which of these many skills he is best at, BUT from the looks of it he is a massively talented stylist. Check out this sullenly, smooth and epicurean images shot for Oki Ni's 'STYLED' section.

Oliver Spencer Navigator 100% British Millerain Waxed showerproof Jacket
The love for this jacket is all in the deets! The large field parka or hunting jacket style pockets, good for stashing everything from shotgun shells to iPhones. The lovely jetted pocket, its the hidden one on the right side of the jacket, our left, makes an unusual addition to a piece of outwear. Usually such specification is saved for formal tailored jackets/blazers. In my humble opinion this makes the jacket even more appealing as it cleverly blends classic and contemporary styles. To top it all off, the single L shaped breast pocket with contrast coloured button has to be the most eye catching feature on this understated piece of apparel.
Oh and if you did not know, Millerain is a British made (this is a rarity in itself), premium, waxed, performance fabrication. You know this is durable and quality material when the very same company makes military and medical performance wear, as has done so for over 200 years! Need I say more?
