The Inverness Cape

The perfect overcoat for kilt and breeches walking in the moisty meadows and windy round hills of Jutland is the Inverness cape.
Mine is fifty-some years old; made by Burberry in a lovely Harris Tweed.

The British Warm. .. perfect for the colder weather as Winter is soon upon us.The British Warm was introduced in 1914 by the Scottish company, Crombie, as a Greatcoat for British officers during WWI. Made in heavy Melton in a taupe colour; slightly shaped and cut in a lenght that still revealed part of the jodhpurs or breeches over the field boots.
