In what has been a frankly sensational week for looking at new big winter jackets this Birat jacket is the teddy bear fur coated cherry on the cool coat cake. A Kind Of Guise make some superb schmutter and this wonderfully tactile woollen/mohair number is no exception with it’s quilted lining and steiff collar. That’s not a typo by the way, their collars really are made using the same material that the legendary German teddy bears are made from. I think this is definitely an early contender for the best winter jacket to pop up so far and just imagine how warm it is too? Vorsprung durch teddy neck as they say in Germany.
