Black Tie Event - The Overcoat

You still need to look the part when you arrive and leave, so no parkas, trench coats, anoraks or other casual coats.
The chesterfield is the traditional formal overcoat, but other dressy long overcoats in a dark colour are acceptable. The formal scarf is white silk with tassels.
Oliver Sweeney Enfield cashmere coat
Oliver Sweeney has a simple but high quality navy pure cashmere chesterfield coat (no velvet collar) named the Enfield after the vintage motorcycle. Price at time of print £795.00. More details on their website: www.oliversweeney.co.uk
Udeshi Astrakan coat
Udeshi has a more flamboyant overcoat again in the chesterfield style. The Astrakan coat was inspired by a coat worn by a prominent 1960s “gentleman” gangster, and the collar and lapels are covered in astrakan (Persian lamb) imitation. The coat is cut with a fly front and unusually double vents – which allows more comfort and easier access to the back trouser pocket. Price at time of print £1475. Check out there website for more details www.udeshi.com

Remember, Black tie events are where you guys can look suave and sophisticated in monochrome – leave the glitz and colour to us ladies – dressed in the right attire you don’t need it.
