This was my Christmas gift for my boyfriend: a duffle coat!
I chose the Albion pattern by Colette patterns for its classic shape (and because it comes as a unisex pattern so I can one for myself later).
I used a beautiful (and expensive) beige wool cashmere and lined the coat with blue and beige striped bemberg lining (I couldn’t find any traditional tartan flannel lining in warm Valencia, I guess it wouldn’t sell).
Instead of the classical toggles (couldn’t find them either), I used these leather snap-on fasteners and I love the more modern look they add.
