A few weeks back I wandered the streets of Saltburn by the Sea in my new River Island Black Overcoat. We’re approaching the end of our Winter months and Spring is about to begin, however, as you all know… In jolly old England, we have chilly weather all year round, so this coat is still coming in handy from time to time – a definite go to piece! I have become very attached to the Black Overcoat and have in fact purchased its brother, the River Island Camel Coat. These coats really suit any kind of look you’re wanting to achieve! This one goes well over the top of your suit, for a more casual look (as you can see in my pictures) or if you’re looking to emulate a more iconic look, you could try and make your very own stockbroker/ old fashioned gentleman look with it!
This River Island Black Overcoat is made of premium soft fabric and comes in a longline fit. This is fantastic if – like me – you’re a tall, slim guy looking for a well fitting and reasonably priced jacket. The feel is second to none also and feels super soft and durable when worn. The River Island Black Overcoat also benefits from long sleeves, which as stated above, are hugely beneficial for somebody like me. I’m always worried when I get off-the-rail sizes from shops as I’m a tall, slim guy… Probably one of the more awkwarder body shapes to fit! This River Island Black Overcoat fits my body type fantastically and is a size M. The overall look and feel is superb!
All in all this River Island Black Overcoat is a fantastic quality jacket and certainly does not feel cheap. It has a few little details which are wonderful and is a telling price at £80. If you’re interested in this Gentleman fashion statement winter jacket, then I’d recommend you take a look at this one.
