[Men] Full Length Coats

I skimmed this morning from the drinking trough

And held against the world of hoary grass.

It melted, and I let it fall and break.

But I was well

Upon my way to sleep before it fell,

And I could tell

What form my dreaming was about to take.

Magnified apples appear and disappear,

Stem end and blossom end,

And every fleck of russet showing clear. – Robert Frost

As the leaves fall from trees, indicating a change in season towards autumn. Many of us will be adjusting our wardrobes accordingly. With autumn, days are shorter and winter easily creeps up on us in a flash.

Staying warm, now becomes a main priority for many of us. Coats have often been a favourite for winter, due to their thickness and length. Insulation all around. But in the world of fashion you can’t just say coat, there are mackintoshes, peacoats, full length coats and trench coats to name a few. And which one you opt for is totally up to you. But for me, hopefully if the funds allow, I will be rocking a full length coat. Full length coats have long been seen as a garment worn by older much affluent men or someone living in the Scottish Highlands. But why should they have all the warmth? Having at least one full length coat in your wardrobe should be as key as having 3 pairs of jeans, especially the winters of England and other countries of the Northern Hemisphere. Full length coats exude a ministerial sophistication and give off the impression you can know how to talk shop. Here are a couple of full length coats that are out there in the market.
