Out of this winter’s male fashion trend of simplicity and checks, the most popular pattern seems to be the glen check pattern, which consists of an array of irregular checks.
MC Yoo Jae Suk and model-turned-actor Kim Woo Bin were both spotted wearing the same coat recently, Yoo Jae Suk on MBC’s “Infinity Challenge” and Kim Woo Bin on SBS drama “The Heirs.”
The coat in question is the slim-fit Prince of Wales check wool coat, belonging to the Ami 2013 Fall/Winter Collection. Ami is an up-and-coming affordable luxury label by French designer, Alexandre Mattiussi. Made of warm wool, this coat features a glen check pattern (sometimes known as the Prince of Wales check), a design with small and large checks. The knee-length coat retails at 1,180,000 KRW (or ~1,116 USD) in Korea
