The original Cordings men's Covert Coat is the epitomy of style meeting function and is so steeped in British heritage that the V&A museum have one of our very own covert coats in their permanent collection.
The versatility of the Covert Coat, immaculate tailoring, neat lines and functional style mean that it has become a modern classic, much coveted the world over. Not that this is the origin of its name - covert is a hunting term, from the French couvert meaning a thicket, which in English came to mean a hiding place for game birds. The tightly woven twill fabric and rail road stitching makes it very durable, thus designed to resist when charging through the brambles on horseback. Nowadays, however, it is just as likely to be seen on the man about town, appropriate for almost every occasion and an indispensable part of every man's wardrobe.
Our Covert coats come in Charcoal, Navy, Herringbone Tweed and 'Original'. The Original is made from cloth woven in the West of England by the Fox Brothers who were responsible for weaving the original cloth well over a century ago. It is designed in a baize wool Covert twill so that horse hair doesn't show up on it. The original, along with the rest of the Cordings Covert Coat collection personifies classic simplicity and effortless style.
Whether Herringbone Tweed, Navy or Original, these are the world's favourite Covert Coats. Shop online today.
