Your New Topcoat for Fall 2012
The Editors, GQ Magazine
This is undoubtedly the season of the topcoat, something that was made very clear all the way through the Milan, Paris and New York shows. The double-breasted silhouette isn't as commonly seen on the streets as are the single-breasted models, but that doesn't mean it's not as versatile and essential a piece — maybe more so. Thanks to the military-influenced six-button closure and peak lapels, the silhouette packs an instant, elegant bunch when buttoned up, whether over a gray flannel suit or T-shirt and slim cargos. And always ignore the sales associate who says to size up when buying your topcoat. It should fit snugly, so you're consistently sharp, whether showing up to brunch or a black-tie ball.
