A classic coat can last you years on end and if looked after, be passed on for future wearers. So finding one that’s well made and passes the test of time on a style front is mandatory. Finding one that’s ethically made with quality fabrics? Even better. There’s no need to sugarcoat these Australian and New Zealand brands.

1. Arnsdorf

Arnsdorf coat

Arnsdorf has the classic coat range covered – from the oversized wool coat to the bright and funky tailored trench. In true Arnsdorf style, the coats are made from natural fibres such as linen, wool and cotton. Check out the cost break down on each item to see just how much cash goes into the quality fabrics for these fine garments. A cosy coat from Arnsdorf will set you back between $730-$990.

2. Kowtow

Kowtow coatKowtow has warmly welcomed its first collection of ethical and sustainable wool coats for winter 2019. Impeccably tailored, the styles on offer are made from mulesing-free ZQ certified merino wool and fully lined with cupro and finished with tagua nut buttons. These coats are no doubt an investment for years ahead, and are priced accordingly around $820-$860.

Melbourne’s Obus Clothing has kept its usual commitment to colour in its Winter 2019 coat range, but pared back the prints a little to let the cuts do the talking. There’s an oversized, double-breasted variety in clay or check that sits mid thigh, or a longer cut that’s belted around the waist. All of the coats are ethically made in Melbourne and come in between $499-$599.
