The duffle coat

Left to right: AllSaints quantum duffle coat £225| Raf Simons duffle coat @ Mr Porter £830| Topman mid grey duffle coat £80.

Originally designed for seafarers to tackle the bitter cold, the duffle coat is now a must have in every 'modern man's' wardrobe.

It is said that the coat's characteristic fastenings - large wooden toggles slotted through rope loops - could quite easily be manipulated with the coldest of hands, and were even used heavily by the Royal Navy during the Second World War. 

With this is mind, could you find a better coat to have this winter?

Thought not, see above three great picks to choose from.
