The Chesterfield

Sale price Price $999.00 Regular price Unit price  per 

Named after the Earl of Chesterfield, and invented in the mid-19th century, it was the very first overcoat of its kind. Over the years, it has only changed insignificantly and today a Chesterfield features:

  • No waist seams or front darts (up until then, those were the standard)
  • Single-breasted fly front
  • Short, notched lapel
  • Velvet collar (optional)
  • Straight side pockets – it looks like a flap pocket but it could be a jetted pocket
  • No cuffs
  • Single back vent and an otherwise plain back

This show-stopper features a rich jet black Super 110 Italian Merino Worsted Wool with a form fitting single breasted front and notch lapel. Generally, it is about knee-long and makes for a great business overcoat. If you go with a velvet collar, you will definitely own a conversation starter.
