Get The Look - Prince Harry

Though public attention is currently focused on the older of the two princes (who's currently very busy signing-off bone china engagement mementos) Prince Harry is still around, and on his recent trip to Berlin we thought he looked rather dapper.

The double-breasted great coat fits like a charm, and it's a look of which we should all take note. If there's one piece of style advice to follow this winter - particularly during the snap - it's to ditch ill-fitting puffa jackets in favour of wool or cashmere-blend coats, which will keep out the cold as well as any synthetic, and have you resembling royalty in an instant.

The Hybrid

Excuse the pun, but Joseph's double breasted woolen number is a bit of a turncoat. Somewhere between a pea coat and great coat, the sharp cut combined with the high, wide lapels means that this can be worn with both smarter and more casual looks

The Traditionalist

This double breasted five button wool trench is designed around a military jacket found in Savile Row taylor Gieves and Hawkes' extensive archives, and it shows. One for the traditionalists among us.

The Chancer

Though we're big on double breasted styles this season, they're not for everyone. This single breasted Epsom coat from Paul Smith is a good compromise, combining a traditional cut with contemporary features such as a velvet-trim collar and a rather jazzy lining, it's a good option for dressier ensembles.

The Extrovert

For the braver among you, this is the avant-garde option of the four. Featuring a beaver fur collar, this single breasted black wool and angora mix coat is belted, not buttoned, and has been influenced by a ‘geometric cut jacket’ found in Milan in the 50s. We'd be right there with it if it wasn't for the £1360 price tag.
