Car salesmen, gangsters and Del Boy gave it a bad name, but the shearling coat has so much more to give. Throw it casually over a low-V tee as they did at Berluti and “Hey, presto!” You’re the cosiest chiller in town. Feeling more adventurous? Opt for a shinier black number over a full chequered look as they did at Coach for all sorts of Kanye cool. And that’s the beauty of a good shearling—it looks as good over your suit as it does over your pyjamas, and equally at home on a country walk, on the slopes or in the city. It’s cooler than a puff and far more nonchalant than the ubiquitous parka. It has that unpindownable cool-without-even-trying vibe; you know the one.
