The New Conrad Herringbone Tweed Car Coat from Cordings, Made in England

Photos by Salt Water New England
The new Conrad Herringbone Tweed Car Coat from Cordings perfectly combines so many favorite elements.  It is made of a thick (20oz), comfortable, warm Herringbone Tweed made by Lovat Mills. It has the proportions of a Car Coat with an action back, so it is generously sized and non-binding.  It has hand warmer pockets,  real horn buttons, and is double breasted with a substantial collar, so gives a bit of a peacoat silhouette.    
The result is a commanding coat that is ideal for both town and country, and for both work and play.  The first feeling upon wearing it is, "This could be my favorite coat."  It may also be the most worn this season.

  1. A perfect garment in every respect! Well chosen!

  2. The very wide lapels and £895 price tag have put me off the Conrad car coat. After missing out last year due to illness, I'm hoping that the putty British Warm coat will be restocked in store.
