Some impressions of the Apex Coat...
A couple of months ago, I walked into the Allsaints store and saw this displayed on a mannequin. It was a Big Wow - just stopped me in my tracks.
It's simultaneously smart and rock & roll. It's just a great blend without going too far in either direction.
For example, the quality of the material is apparent and it's got pick stitching along the pockets and lapels. But the peak lapels aren't so sharply defined as to make it too formal. And the cut isn't too aggressive (like some of Diesel's overcoats) but it's got a definite edge to it. A nice touch is the peaks on the lapels are tethered by thread (I suppose you can snip it) that seems to keep them in line when you flip the collar up.
And the material is gorgeous-- Allsaints' rich ink color. Very soft and felty. Good stuff.
So, here are a couple of different looks, from smart to casual:
Over a full suit--
Over shirt and trousers--
