The Fabulous Follifoot for Men from Cordings of Piccadilly

Weighty yet Supple - Photos by Salt Water New England

The fabulous Follifoot, a Cordings' tour de force, is made of 100% Irish Donegal Wool from Ireland's Magee.  It is made for Men but being on the tall side I can easily wear it, especially with the raglan sleeves.  They describe it as weighty yet supple and that is precisely what it is.  The Irish tweed is especially soft and putting it on feels like a dream.  A wonderful piece with a wide range of wearing options.

  2. That is gorgeous. I could well imagine a prep bypassing the camel polo in favor of this!

  3. You should have gone for their loden coat, which is also water-resistant.

    1. Yes Susan, I agree. The speckles of colour in the tweed are
      wonderful. LOVE menswear.

  5. Lovely tweed however how about something in a similar tweed but in more accommodating womens sizing or at least suggestions for where one might buy a coat such as this. PA

  7. I bought a similar Donegal Follifoot Coat from Cordings about three years ago, and it is everything a tweed coat should be. Great quality. (A photo of my coat being modeled can be viewed on Cordings' Instagram account from November 23, 2016.)

  8. It's unconscionable to shoot and kill a tweed just to satisfy one's lust for luxury.

  9. This might be the best coat I’ve seen... just gorgeous. Being 5’ 1” doesn’t give me much hope for ever wearing it.

  10. Thank you for putting this on my radar. I was wondering if you can confirm if it is made in Ireland or England? I checked the website, but could not find any confirmation.

    2. It may not be Ireland or England. In recent years, Cordings have used factories in Scotland, the Netherlands and Italy to make garments using British cloth.

  11. I turned 60 three years ago and treated myself to this coat. It is extremely stylish and has attracted compliments and queries of 'where did you get that coat?' It is certainly showerproof and looks fine with a brown racing felt (trilby) hat or tweed cap. Definitely winter-weight.
