The Picardy overcoat is named after the area where it is produced, and where the first collections of the brand were made. Patric enjoys the ponds and forests of the region, and this three-quarter length straight coat is a call for long walks in the countryside. Inside the collar is a buttoned hood that protects well against bad weather. Once packed in, it stuffs the collar to keep the neck warm. The front protects the body from wind and cold thanks to a two-way zip covered by a snap-fastener tab. A delta-shaped back slit promotes walking and the bottom double stich closes the wool lining. If needed, an inside lace takes in at the waist, and cuffs are sealed by a button and by stretch-wool lining. One can easily don the wide tailored sleeves over a jacket or a thick sweater. The two bias hand pockets take some lateral tension off the shoulder by bearing the arms’ weight. To fit a notebook or a phone there are two buttoned flap pockets, and inside are four stout zipped pockets, one of them very large. This high-quality overcoat is a perfect pick for a modern city-dweller wanting a confortable but elegant daily-life outfit.
