Classic pure wool covert coat to cut a dash: Members save more than £180
A genuine covert coat always cuts a dash, and this is the proper job, tailored by Magee of Donegal from pure wool worsted. It will probably last for ever. The covert coat started life in equestrian circles, swiftly moving from stables to trainers and owners, thence to the smartest racecourse enclosures and the City. A distinctive feature of the proper covert coat is the rows of stitching, or ‘tramlines’, around the hem and sleeves (traditionally so it could be cut to fit a shorter wearer with a pair of shears).
Our handsome coat is beautifully tailored in the traditional proofed wool worsted; it is so hard wearing that these coats were worn out hunting in all weathers, which of course gave the coat its name. Time-honoured features include ticket pocket, three-button fly fastening, flapped waist pockets, centre back vent and satin lining. The collar is trimmed with velvet.
Choose from brown with dark brown velvet collar for the traditionalist, and grey with black velvet collar for the man who cannot possibly be seen about town wearing brown, other than in August. Chest sizes are 40-60in in regular fitting.
