A 3/4 long, single breasted camel coat. This is what adds to a gentleman's winter wardrobe. It is essential to own one of these, if it suits your style, because it acts both as a buffer against the cold and adds a touch of gentlemanly style to any layered or suited ensemble.
The brand is Durburg. I don't know much about it but its name and origins is definitely a cause for research and a post at a later date. Since this was a gift I will not divulge the price.
