Words: T. MacInnis


From puffers to trenches to blazers to parkas, there are many coat options with different features that differentiate them. One that might be particularly elusive is the double-faced Epsom coat.

If you’re looking for an overcoat you can wear over a suit or to dress down at the weekend, the Epsom coat could be what you’re after. But what exactly is an Epsom coat, and what makes it special? Read on to find out and see how and where you can wear one.

What is an Epsom coat?

A double-faced Epsom coat is a particular style of overcoat with a single breast and a hem that sits just above the knee. The fabric is usually cashmere, wool, silk or another natural fabric, and is double woven. Two thin layers of fabric are threaded together to make a thicker fabric, hence the “double,” and you can use either side for the outside of the coat. Special seaming and finishing techniques are usually done by hand and there’s no lining, which makes the coat lightweight but still warm.

Thanks to their quality fabric and construction, double-faced Epsom coats are great investment pieces.They’re warm, well-made and super versatile. We offer them in a range of colours for you to choose from like camel, chestnut and navy, which means you’re bound to find one that fits into your wardrobe.

What can I wear with a double-faced Epsom coat?

Thanks to their clean lines, you can wear Epsom coats with just about everything. The chestnut-coloured coat pairs well with joggers, a roll-neck jumper and trainers, and the charcoal one layered over your best Italian suit. Essentially, you can smarten up a more casual outfit with a Epsom coat, or you can maintain a more dressed-up office or formalwear look.

Where can I wear a double-faced Epsom coat?

We love versatility at Moss, and our double-faced Epsom coat captures it perfectly. Unlike some coats that feel more right for a weekend away or more formal occasions, these coats suit just about any day or destination. We think the camel one is best for a casual weekend while the navy, black or charcoal would make a great topper for your wedding suit.

If you’re in the market for a new winter-ready coat, the Epsom is a great choice. You’ll wear it loads, it’ll last for years to come, and it will always fit seamlessly into your wardrobe. What could be better?
