Bal Collar Coat - Harris Tweed Patchwork
A classic solution to a timeless problem, the Bal Collar Coat is a stylish take on the essential raincoat. Although often associated with British businessmen, for decades this style has been adopted by sartorially minded individuals the world over. Japanese retails BEAMS remains committed to savouring these moments in fashion through their BEAMS Plus range.
The Bal Collar Coat is said to originate from a town in Inverness, Scotland named Balmacaan. The defining feature of this style is the functionality – designed to protect against rain. The collar can be pulled up and secured like a storm flap, which gives full coverage against the weather. In order to keep water away from your body, the coat is also cut with an a-line silhouette – encouraging water to run off and away from your trousers and shoes.
This particular coat is created with a patchwork of fabrics from famed mill Harris Tweed. For over 200 years, Harris Tweed has been manufacturing the world's finest tweeds and other textiles in the Scottish Isles. Here a combination of iconic patterns are stitched together to form a quilt of tweeds, making for a supremely unique look.
