Our debut car coat in a statement weave and palette.
Cream forms the base shade, forming repeating oval motifs in Compton’s chain-like pattern. Each link in the chain is coloured in plum, with the shading in-between in a deep tone of green.
We spin our yarns in Scotland. Chalcot is then stitched in Portugal at a specialist factory whose standards are as high as our own.
Being a car coat, Compton has a relaxed fit, so it hangs loosely and has plenty of room inside, with just a single covered button. It’s a mid-thigh design and is an example of how to work a menswear silhouette with elegance.
Wool is the primary yarn in this tweed cloth. We’ve treated it so that it’s soft, but not so much that it removes wool’s natural character and texture. Expect warmth and a slightly coarse texture, but our silken lining means its smooth on wearing. The perimeter and outer arms are edged in suede piping.
Compton’s composition is 66% wool, 20% acrylic and 14% polyester
Dry clean only.
