Guys, Listen Up: This Is The Most Badass Topcoat We’ve Seen All Year

It’s called the “Assassins” for a reason.

Tweed conjures up a certain image: an old man in a British pub, smoking a pipe. It telegraphs traditional and classy — it’s just never been exactly city-cool. But local menswear maker Commonwealth Proper has fabricated a tweed topcoat so secret-agent badass that they named it the Assassins.

The just-released piece is windproof and light, with modern touches like a slim cut and look-at-me lining. So even if you’ll never actually be 007 you can at least cop his style. Herringbone Assassins Topcoat, $2,950 at Commonwealth Proper, Rittenhouse.

Published as “Covet: Bond Ambition” in the November 2018 issue of Philadelphia magazine.
