The Shearling Coat

tumblr_nr54jeWhrm1r745vdo3_500

The rugged shearling jacket is a classic investment piece that you’ll find yourself going back to each season. It brings to mind the classic styles donned by Messrs Marlon Brando in On the Waterfront and James Dean in Giant. Other exponents include Tom Hardy, Jim Morrison and Bob Dylan.

The Shearling coat keeps you looking smart and provides natural insulation, perfect for those chilly winter days. It is smart and practical that’ll work with casual and smart outfits alike.

The only problem we have is that they are a costly investment.

Unlike your dad’s woolly jumper, shearling is made from the actual skin of a lamb or sheep and the treating process is often comically expensive. And then there’s the legwork in actually fashioning a garment out of it. It takes much longer to produce a shearling jacket than it does, say, a cotton bomber jacket, and even clothing manufacturers need to pay the bills.

If you want heads to look up when you enter a bar, we say, buy a Shearling jacket, and change your life for the better.
