Throughout the film George Smiley (Gary Oldman) is seen in his reversable Aquascutum trench coat. An absolute classic! We had one recently that was almost identical, though it was snapped up very quickly from our eBay shop. I think that every man should have a classic trench coat, it really is the ideal coat for wearing over a suit and doesn't go out of style. I love a good trench coat, we have a few in our shop at the moment -
This one's by Burberry.
It's not the only great coat on show though, as you can see from the picture above. For colder days, the stylish spy needs a wool overcoat. Here's one I love-
This amazing 1970's sheepskin coat is unusual, since it is almost knee length and has a belted waist. Super duper!
Also he had a very nice Harrington style jacket with an attractive tartan lining -
Also in this film we get a couple of great leather jackets, always a favourite -
Unsurprisingly though, the jewel in the crown here is the tailoring. Every man needs a great suit, and this film is just choc-full of great suits, including a couple with amazing flares worn by Benedict Cumberbatch.Whether you want two-piece, three piece, checked, striped or plain, this film will provide you with some great vintage tailoring inspiration.
All the way through this film I was thinking to myself 'Ooh, we've got a coat like that' or 'that suit looks just like one we just sold!' so it really was right up our street. I'd recommend it, whether you love thrilling twists and turns or great clothes, as you'll get both in spades.
