Bespoke TopCoat - A Gentlemen's Essential to Staying Warm and looking Stylish

When it comes to Men’s suit accessories, a wardrobe simply can’t be complete without a bespoke topcoat.

Apart from the obvious of looking stylish and gentlemanly, it will greatly help in keeping you warm and dry in Toronto's not so warm winter and fall months. From a regular day in the office to a meeting with your future in-laws, your topcoat will only give the essence of luxury.

Founder of Hajjy & Sons: Hajjy wearing Grey Cashmere/Wool Topcoat

Fleece coats from your typical retail store don't keep you warm, they're mass produced and fail several quality control measures. Hajjy & Sons on the other hand make topcoats not just for style but for complete functionality. With the inner silk lining and worsted wool as the most basic optional available, functionality is built in to the coat. Hundreds of different options available, including Khan camel hair and corduroy lining, your top coat will be one of one.

There are several characteristics to consider when creating a bespoke overcoat, first and foremost; fabric. If you plan to wear this coat for years to come, there is no substitute for wool. In general, heavier coats last longer because the fabric is more durable. On the flip side, cashmere coats are very nice, soft and warm; but they can show wear fast overtime if warn a lot. So, a popular alternative is a wool/cashmere blend. It is softer and warmer than wool, and last longer and shows less wear than your typical cashmere topcoat.

The next important characteristic to consider is the length and fit. The coat sleeves should completely cover both the suit sleeves and the cuffs, this way when you wear gloves, there will be no break between topcoat and gloves.

Traditionally, topcoats used to be fairly long, almost reaching your ankles. These were the choice of seasoned gentleman. Today, it’s most common to see them reaching just to the knee’s or just above. It is a convenient option, especially if you find yourself getting in and out of a car multiple times a day.

When it comes to the fit, remember, topcoats are made to be worn over a suit and not by themselves with a shirt.
