Norton and Townsend
From the classic Chesterfield or Ulster, through to a pea coat or Crombie, an overcoat is a wardrobe essential, designed to keep you warm and provide protection from our notoriously bad weather. There’s so much more to an overcoat than just function though and choosing a tailored overcoat is a great way to ensure you look stylish and elegant, regardless of how cold, wet and windy it is…
Choosing a bespoke overcoat offers a great opportunity to put your own unique stamp on a handmade garment that you’ll enjoy wearing for many years to come. Whether you see yourself as a Crombie man, or prefer the smart yet utilitarian look of a double breasted pea coat, here at Norton & Townsend we have the expertise to design and make a tailored coat to match your individual style.
Now you might already have a clear idea of what you’re looking for in a bespoke overcoat but if not, our highly experienced London tailors will talk you through the wide range of options available. We’ll take detailed measurements and take into account your body type and posture, and help you choose the style that’s going to suit you best.
The next step is to pick the perfect fabric and we offer our clients a huge selection of premium quality fabrics and linings; from classic wools and cashmere, through to tweeds, weaves and blends. Last and by no means least, your tailor will help you choose those all-important little extras that will make your overcoat unique; including buttons, collar, trims, vents and pockets.
Once you’ve decided on your chosen style and fabrics, our team of skilled pattern cutters will get to work on creating a pattern that’s unique to you. All tailoring is carried out in our workrooms and once your bespoke overcoat is ready, your personal tailor will get in touch to arrange a delivery fitting. Buying a tailored overcoat is the best way to ensure the ultimate fit and quality and if you’re not 100% satisfied, we’ll carry out any alterations which may be required as quickly as possible.
Your coat is likely to be the garment you reach for the most during the autumn and winter months. It keeps you warm and dry; protecting you from the elements. Because you wear it every day, it needs to keep its shape whilst also being hardwearing. Unlike an ‘off the peg coat’, a bespoke overcoat is designed to fit you and only you, enhancing the rest of your wardrobe and giving elegant, stylish protection for years to come.
From Lodens and Parkas, through to Duffle coats and Trench coats, we can help you help you choose a coat which reflects your own individual style, fits you perfectly and is completely unique. Our team of highly experienced tailors are available throughout the UK and fittings can be arranged at a time and location to suit you. Our tailoring workshops are situated in Spitalfields, London and Ilkley, near Leeds – offering customers in the South or the North of the country, high-street locations for your convenience.
