Strolling through a leafy street of a weekend, en route to pick up the papers and a coffee or on the way to a pub on a Sunday for a decent roast, which guarantees falling asleep on the sofa when you get back home!

Most similar to a polo coat, this Outer Gown is an ideal balance between the casual comfort of an unstructured jacket and the formality of a proper length overcoat. It can be worn in several different ways; with the belt tied and collar down in its most traditional wrap coat style, or loosely open with the collar popped for a devil-may-care louche look.

Ideally paired with flannels and knitwear, this coat is also at home over jeans and a shirt or even tailoring. Dress it up or down depending on mood. The style of the coat works for both smart and casual outfits.

Historically polo coats would be thrown over the shoulders of polo and tennis players between chukkas or sets. Their easy style was ideally suited to gentlemen in sportswear and it is this hybrid smart/casual aspect that the Gownsmith Outer Gowns have inherited from polo coats.

Made in England

The Cloth

Heavy, sumptuous 22oz pure wool in a brown glen check; perfect for a traditional polo coat. The hazelnut and cream pattern makes for a warm, autumnal tone. The deep blue lining perfectly complements the outer fabric, and is, naturally, our signature blue as found on the trimming of the lounge and resort gowns.

Wool is without doubt the best choice for overcoating fabric both from a performance point of view, but also thanks to its sustainability. At Gownsmith we are proud proponents of wool as a material and encourage you to read more of the Campaign for Wool.

Outer Gowns

Gowns for wearing as coats; thicker materials, lined, but still with our trademark comfortable slouchy look and feel. These Outer Gowns are based on a hybrid of our lounge gowns and the sort of Polo Coat that would have been thrown on between chukkas a century ago.
