My go-to brand for coats has to be Seasalt. Whether you’re looking for light weight or heavy duty, long or short, brightly coloured or understated, Seasalt is the place to start.
When I moved to the UK from Australia I had no idea of the need for such a
variety of outerwear – one leather jacket, one denim jacket and an umbrella pretty much gets an Aussie through the cold weather! So after shivering through my first Winter a helpful friend told introduced me to the notion that there is no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.
Hello options such as waterproof, windproof, breathable, packable, rollable, reversible, belted, buttoned, zipped or toggled… coats for dog walking, beach combing, school runs, day trips, errands and standing on the sidelines at sports matches.
Seasalt follow the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) base code and provide information on their social and environmental policies which deserve a read. And what’s more they can be found on the high street which is very rare indeed for a truly ethical fashion label.
Now I would describe my coats as a collection, and Seasalt is very much at the practical heart of it.
