Kanye West, king of coats, was at it again just before Christmas. Spotted out strolling around with his wife Kim Kardashian West, the rapper/producer/new face of Balmain rocked a seriously excellent grey three-quarter-length overcoat.

As well as being a classic menswear staple, the wool coat is an ideal method for staying both snug and stylish throughout the festive party period. And while, as a resident of balmy Los Angeles, it’s debatable whether he strictly needed his for functional reasons, Yeezy provided a lesson in pure outerwear form.
The key to rocking a topcoat as part of a cool smart/casual get-up is balance. If you're lucky enough to own a real statement piece like Kanye's speckled black-and-white number, keep things clean and simple down below with a pair of smart black or dark grey jeans, a basic black tee or crew-neck jumper, and some sweet brown suede boots. Very nice.
