007 Topcoat Edit - Skyfall vs SPECTRE

by Roberto Revilla

We have our first glimpse of the new style topcoats in SPECTRE! Skyfall saw a very popular take on the classic single breasted topcoat, with Bond wearing a navy, three-button number cut to just above knee-length.

I caught a fleeting glimpse of the same in SPECTRE but with a covered button front.

Then there this new double breasted number in the new film - black, cut to below knee-length.

For me the new version is better suited to taller gents, the Skyfall version will still most likely be the most popular this season just because it's suited to a wider range of body styles and is far more versatile, since it can be worn over a suit or over a sweater and chinos. The double-breasted version may be too imposing and formal for some.
