Thanks CK, that's so nice to hear. And yes I think you're right on the black. We're not planning to redo the pre-order next year, no. Sorry. And as to a colour for next year, to be honest I haven't even thought about it yet!

Lovely visit to William Crabtree & Sons this afternoon to try on the trench in olive. A wonderful experience - speaking with the representative there (Jake, I believe) was a pleasure. Highly recommend those in or around London stop in. It was also, for me,…

Beautiful flowing coat which would suit a big hat. Very dramatic. Certainly one for making an entrance.

I agree. Time to update the “if you only need 5 coats” article- just get all the colours of this beauty

I'm 172 cm and my favourite overcoat (I would even say my favourite piece of clothing) is well below the knee. I know that they make me look shorter and it's been noticed even by "non menswear people" but apart from more elegant they are…

Simon, On this topic, in November I aim to purchase the cashmere shawl collar sweater. Will it be less expensive to have it sent to my London home, or my place in Venice? Thank you and cheers.

There should be a small number of greys available at the end of October. I'd say they're both equally versatile, but this is a touch smarter, and a touch better with darker clothes perhaps, like the ones shown here

Yeah that makes complete sense Matt - it's more interesting, more creative. Interestingly I could see it both on a fashion catwalk and in a classic menswear wardrobe.

The coat looks brilliant. The joy is that it can be worn in so many settings.

I must say this is my least favourite of all iterations. Maybe it's just the photos, but the flecks seem to stand out way too much against the navy background. I certainly see the night-sky comparison, but for me it's not really a positive. Of…

Ahh Simon, man, this is really, REALLY nice. First thing's first, great choice of outfits on this one, from smart to more casual, from black to grey to colour 8, I know you must put thought into a shoot like this, always does the PS…

Please don’t take me seriously I was attempting to be light hearted x I think as long as the chinos are of the smarter variety and a neutral colour like beige or grey it works, esp with a classic navy hopsack or similar. But even…

Hi Simon, which one do you think is more versatile, this navy or the previous grey herringbone? I have unfortunately missed the pre-order of the grey version, when will it be available at the webshop? Thank you.

Yes that's true, I hope you understand that the association was pretty loose. I suppose what I was really try to get at is that the coat is fun. And it's an excellent implementation of the often dicey idea of "fun" in classic menswear. Huge…

Cheers RK. But no, I would never offer a ready-made sports coat - I would always recommend people have those made to measure. Even with the Donegal, I only offer it as a coat because it's not a style it makes much sense to have…

We're still trying to tie up the last few from the pre-orders Martins, then we'll know what if anything is available from the other colours

Ha! Love it. I'm going with pictures of deep space, I feel like those robes were a rather brighter blue

The coat indeed looks wonderful, Simon. May I ask if you are considering offering say a sports jacket in similar styles in the future? All else being equal, I will not hesitate for a moment snapping it up. I’m sure I can’t be the only…

Maybe it's more to do with slimness, but I'm only 180cm, I don't think 5cm shorter would truly make you look lost in it - Ethan Wong is shorter than either of us and he sometimes wears big, long coats and looks great. I think…

what about grey one? I could have sworn you said there will be couple pieces for those that didn't preorder and I was on waitlist for that one.

Simon. The coat looks like the night's sky. It's beautiful of course. And really based on these photos I would call it the most casual one of the donegal coats you've produced, very bright despite being dark navy. I hope you'll forgive me if I…

actually a really lovely colour! but going purely by colour, and seing as I'm trying to end up with no more than 4-5 pieces out outerwear, and I already have your bridge coat, I don't think its a good idea to have 2 navy coats.

Looks great in navy. I love how readily apparent the flecks are against the navy. If I had the money and space I would love to have one in each colour. As it is the brown one brings me great joy whenever I get to…
