It’s pretty clear at this point that Bridge & Burn is a label that I’m quite fond of, so I’ll spare you any long winded meditations in favor of putting out the word (albeit a little late) that they have three new coats available for winter.
My personal favorite is the Major Major (the first image in this post), an update of a style from last spring that’s been reworked in a heavy wool with a quilted satin lining. With the hood, shirttail inspired scooped hem, and slightly off-kilter pocket formation, it caught my eye when it first hit in the original cotton iteration. Seeing it reworked in a more winter-ready version is a welcome development.
There’s also the Berthoud, a longer jacket with five front pockets and a black/red checked lining. Featuring a covert cuff system with ribbed, knitted cuffs tucked inside the sleeve, it looks mighty toasty.
But the Berthoud isn’t the absolute toastiest. That honor falls to the Fraser, a heavy duty interpretation of a vintage Sweedish military piece, according to friend of the blog/Bridge & Burn owner and designer Erik Prowell. So: straight from the horse’s mouth, as it were. Even though I haven’t worn it, I’m going to take him at his word when he says it’s the warmest of the bunch.
All three are currently available online, and prices hit at a pretty-darn-reasonable $250-$290.
