Signature features of this versatile jacket are four (sometimes five) lines of stitching at the cuffs and hem, notched lapels, flap pockets and a centre vent. The traditional colours are greenish-tan-brown-fawnish - some say to better conceal squirts of mud from hunting and riding others that the drivers wearing covert coats during a hunt were more visible for the guns.
My Covert Coat from Hackett London has all these features.
And a perfect match for a navy three-piece city suit.
