Of course, this isn’t a cheap item. But the Ace Suede Coat by Connection Knitwear is a dream of a (Mod) design.

You probably know all about Connection Knitwear and if you don’t, I would recommend you have a read of the interview with Daniele Savare, the man behind the label, who I caught up with a while back. He’s also on the fourth picture down modelling the coat.

You’ll get an idea of what the label is about and the inspiration behind the designs. To sum up, it’s about bringing back quality designs of the past, recreated using small makers who still have the skills to produce these premium designs.

They don’t come cheap, but they are good investment pieces. I say that from experience having bought from Connection in the past.

Do have a look at past designs, but I am focusing on this one as it rather special. As you might have worked out from the imagery, this is based on an original 1960s design, remake here with the sort of attention to detail that has won the label so many admirers.

Probably not the coat for the warm weather we are experiencing now, but when the temperatures do start to drop you’ll appreciate this Italian-made coat in full grain suede, which is detailed with two flap pockets, three-button front, a leather collar, inside button pocket and silk lining. Check out the close-ups to see that lovely stitching and a few other leather details too.

The kind of coat that would have turned heads in the Mod world in the early 1960s and would have coast a pretty penny too. It’s no different today. Yes, it is still a coat to get attention, but it’s also an investment piece.

If you want one, you can order one of these from Connection for €980, which works out at around £840 at the current exchange rate. You will also have to wait on it to be made too, as each one will be made individually for the buyer.
