Crombie - Under the Overcoat




























When we hear the word Crombie, we are likely to think of their overcoats, such is their renown - particularly its three-quarter length style. Crombie has a venerable history. The British company was established in Aberdeen in 1805 and remains British-owned.

Let's not forget, however, that they produce more than overcoats. I was in Fortnum's recently, picking up some of the excellent gourmet marshmallow they sell there (violet and Rose), supplied by Confektz of Suffolk, which you can also buy directly.

























A dapper chap was also at Fortnum's confectionery counter, wearing blue blazer with yellow cotton trousers. I was rather taken with the trousers, so set about searching for something similar. The closest match I've found are from Crombie, which are part of their Quintessentially British Collection. The collection doesn't have an overcoat in sight.
