Camplin, renowned for their traditional, dependable and all-weather ready collection of outerwear, has adhered to the changing of the seasons to offer a range of lightweight, versatile and comfortable raincoats for Spring.
Although we are creeping into warmer climes, Spring showers and crisp mornings continue to dictate our daily dress and particularly our choice of outerwear. So it pays to put some thought into what invariably is the season’s most significant purchase – as coats are central to the way a man looks. After all, even the greatest of figures are recognised by their outerwear – consider the Belstaff jacket of Steve McQueen, the detective cape-peacoat of Sherlock Holmes and James Dean and the bomber. One more synonymous name with outwear is Camplin; the inventor of the Peacoat and trusted supplier to the British Royal Navy.
The iconic heritage of the Camplin brand is unprecedented amongst contemporary menswear outfitters. Today, Camplin still make special outerwear to the same traditional techniques and silhouettes – crafted from the finest materials to offer comfort and functionality.
Having just landed online at OPUMO, the latest collection stays loyal to tradition by reinvigorating two classic designs – the Storm Peacoat and the Raincoat. Available in a range of neutral colour hues to complement every colour in your wardrobe, both silhouettes are crafted from a lightweight and water repellent cotton.
First up, the minimal Rain Coat is a modern adaptation of a vintage-style. Cut in a classic Rain Coat silhouette with a slightly slim-fit, the coat is refined with traditional details in the form of a large spread collar, a concealed button placket and a split seam on the reverse for added comfort. While, the more military-inspired, Storm Peacoat features a double-breasted front with complementing button fastening that acts as a subtle reference to the brand’s naval heritage.
Ideal to be worn as the last layer to a well-thought out look, the neutral colour hues of the new Camplin collection are best paired with darker tones – be it a Black Cropped Chino Trouser from Wood Wood or alternatively, a Light Grey Edwin Jean for a summer-inspired style. Simply layer with your favourite staple tee and a lightweight sweatshirt or knitwear – like the Gant Rugger Navy Turtleneck Zip Sweater or Oliver Spencer Cardigan– for added warmth.
Whether it be through casual spring layering, as featured, or simply paired with a tailored trouser and sweater –Camplin’s lightweight raincoats will be the perfect complement to all.
