The Edward Sexton greatcoat is our pièce de résistance - a luxurious coat that is both elegant in appearance and a technical feat of cutting and tailoring. Inspired by mid-century military overcoats, with a generous stand-and-fall collar, full wrap, ’S-shaped’ double-breasted closure, and a pleated, panelled back, it’s an elevated, imposing overcoat, destined to impress passers-by for years to come.
This charcoal wool greatcoat is the result of years of meticulous cutting and tailoring; Edward has refined this coat’s pattern over many months, ensuring that it captures everything that makes our bespoke overcoats special in a beautifully made ready-to-wear limited edition. Dramatic and imposing, it is cut to fall to the shins with a generous double-breasted front that buttons to the nape of the neck, and oversized stand-and-fall collar. The body coat back runs into deep box pleats with a half-belt overlaid across the waist seam. It is finished with delicate top-stitching and double-sided buttonholes along the length of both lapels. The cloth itself is a sumptuously soft 18oz wool, woven in Italy, which feels both luxurious and robust to wear, it has the surface softness of cashmere and the body of wool. True to our DNA and beautifully tailored, this timeless overcoat is destined to become one of your most treasured pieces of fine tailoring.
