Eidos Double-Breasted Officer Coats from No Man Walks Alone

It's a snow day in DC today so I thought it would be a good day to share what I think is the ideal overcoat and one that happens to be on sale at this moment, the Eidos wool/cashmere double-breasted officer coat in grey large herringbone and burgundy offered by No Man Walks Alone.


For those of you who are unfamiliar, No Man Walks Alone is a e-commerce menswear store based in NYC that sells both high-end classic menswear and avante-garde casual clothing.

When I evaluate an overcoat, I have a few criteria I look for and this coat has almost all of them.


1. Quality maker ✔

2. Double-breasted ✔

3. Wide lapels ✔

4. Knee length ✔

5. Vented back

6. Self-belted back

7. Ten button front and functional button holes so the coat can be buttoned all the way up ✔


While I would have preferred to have a vented and self-belted back, it's so rare to have this many of the qualities I prefer in a single coat that I'm seriously tempted.


I'm torn between the plain, but bold burgundy and the more classic, but also busier herringbone. I think either would be a superb addition to anyone's wardrobe.


At $971.75, the coat isn't exactly cheap, but a much better dressed man than me once advised me to buy half as many things at twice the price. Given that I have two coats that cost around $450, this seems like it's right about what I should be buying next. It may be the same for you. Even if it's not, I encourage you to visit the site, scroll through the additional pictures, and admire the craftsmanship that went into this coat.


Until next time,


David


Update: No Man Walks Alone let me know the code FINAL15 will save you another 15% bringing the price to down to $826. Still not cheap, but as affordable as it'll ever get.
