AK MC Men’s Contemporary Duffel Coat in Caramel Camel Hair
For more than 170 years, Duffel Coats have claimed their place in the wardrobes of connoisseurs around the planet. Originally of Dutch origin (Duffel refers to a region near Antwerp), they had been adopted by the British Navy in the late 1800s and since then spread around the globe, acquiring in the process close military associations. A noted duffel coat aficionado was Field Marshal Montgomery (Earl Montgomery of Alamein) in whose honor the duffel coat is also referred to as a “Monty” in several countries. The duffel coat is utilitarian in origin, usually made of heavy, coarse material designed to withstand the harsh elements on the coast and the sea. Distinctive elements of the duffel coat include the toggle fasteners in the front, large patch pockets and often also an integrated hood. Due to these origins, the duffel coat has always been a sportier alternative to other types of overcoats, to be worn off-duty in the country rather than in a more formal city setting. Alexander Kraft has always had a soft spot for the duffel coat, but found almost all models on the market lacking in several aspects: They are almost invariably made from heavy, scratchy cloths and feature a boxy coat, creating a rather unflattering silhouette. Quite often, both materials and construction are severly lacking in finesse. Kraft has brought his usual, highly personal approach to the duffel coat and has redesigned it in his own manner: First of all; the AK MC duffel coat is cut slimmer and shorter than most standard models. The hood has been eliminated for the sake of elegance. The toggles are made of real horn, and the fasteners of the finest caramel leather. These, dare we say, improvements to the original allow the coat to transition elegantly from country to town and is the perfect piece to wear with jeans and a cashmere sweater for a leisurely stroll to your local café. This gentlemen’s duffel coat is made from a super-soft angora-/wool mixture, providing an incredibly luxurious feel. In addition, the coat is unlined for additional ease of wear. Due to the scarcity of the material, it comes in a very limited edition and will probably sell out very quickly.
