Overcoats have become lighter and shorter. A British warm and a ulster are seen rarely nowadays.
Pitti Uomo i Florence tells the story. Passing by the stands I saw a good amount of overcoats but of the slip-on type.
Lighthearted teddy bear overcoats symbolize the movement. They have a long history in fashion indeed. James Joyce wore one. Yet, they are modern too. They don’t take their role as overcoats too seriously. Fun, not protection, is their prime virtue.
