Once again, What Meghan Wore presents Fashion Flashback Friday: Meghan’s Coats Part 3 – Tailored Coats.
Meghan’s love of Canadian brands continues starting with Smythe, a brand she has worn for many years now.
In November 2016 Meghan was spotted out in Toronto wearing the Smythe ‘Brando’ wool coat in salt and pepper. For Meghan’s first public appearance of 2018, when she and Harry visited Represent Radio, Brixton, UK, she wore the Smythe Brando coat in camel.
Meghan first wore the camel version of the ‘Brando’ while on set in Toronto filming the television show Suits, April 2016 and November 2016.
In April 2018 the Duchess wore Smythe’s ‘Pagoda’ Coat ($995) in the ‘Storm in Neutral’ color, as she attended the Anzac Day dawn service at Hyde Park Corner in London, England. According to the brand this is one of their best-selling coats.
The double-breasted contemporary-fitted coat is crafted in a wool stretch suiting. It features stunning shoulder detail, a high back vent, contrasting dark buttons and double pockets.
For the Together cookbook launch in September 2018, Meghan wore the Smythe button-front peaked lapel coat in Zephyr ($1195).
The gorgeous bright blue coat is done in a wool/viscose blend with contrasting black buttons and side slit pockets.
This next Canadian brand, Mackage, is one we’ve seen Meghan wear many times. The family-owned business is based in Montreal, Cananda and is the sister-brand to Soia & Kyo (pronounced “Swee and Keeo” for those that are not aware). For the Duchess’ first official appearance with Prince Harry in Nottingham, UK, December 2017, she wore the Mackage ‘Elodie’ military style wool cashmere coat in navy ($890). Not surprisingly, Meghan wore the coat several other times including London, December 2016 and December 2018.

Sentaler has a coat that looks very similar in style to the Mackage Elodie. It is their Double Breasted Trench Double Breasted Trench wool coat. Meghan wore the coat in the mulberry color while arriving on the set of her television show Suits, Toronto, November 2016.
The coat is crafted in wool and alpaca blend and features the Sentaler signature ribbed detail at the cuffs.
Another Canadian retailer that the Duchess favors is Aritzia. While attending a meeting at Kings College, London in December 2018 she draped the retailer’s Wilfred wool-cashmere blend long ‘Cocoon’ coat in Petale over her shoulders.

From Canada we cross the pond over to the UK to take a look at some British brands Meghan has worn and favored.
Another style that echoes the Mackage coat, is this Victoria Beckham navy wool coat we saw on Meghan for Christmas in Sandringham 2018 as well as in February 2019 when the she stepped out in New York City with friends.

British brand Burberry has also played a strong point in Meghan’s fashion collection. We’ve seen Meghan wear the brand numerous times including several episodes of Suits when she played her character, Rachel Zane.
In the October 2017 issue of Vanity Fair, the Duchess wore the Burberry ‘Wool two-tone blue and black coat’.

When she and Harry visited Edinburgh, Scotland in February 2018, we saw her in the Burberry Double-breasted tartan wool and cashmere-blend coat ($2160). The coat remains a favorite among fans.

Another British brand Meghan wore more recently was Reiss – their sabel wool blend overcoat in camel ($645) back in January 2020 when the couple visited Canada House in London.

On several occasions she wore Stella McCartney. The first was a bespoke version of a Stella McCartney coat believed to be based on a style from Stella’s A/W 2019 collection, worn to Remembrance Day services in London.
Then for a SHOUT event which was held in sometime last 2019 or early 2020, she wore the Stella McCartney floral embroidered navy coat.
This beautiful navy wool coat adorned with embroidered flowers really threw us for a loop when trying to identify. Reese Witherspoon had recently worn the coat and we thought perhaps it was from her Draper James line.
When Harry and Meghan visited Sussex, UK, just before their tour of Australia, Meghan wore this Emporio Armani cashmere double cloth coat with classic lapels.

Jumping back to Suits, Meghan, er uh, Rachel Zane wore Gucci’s sleek black wool coat with faux pearl buttons embossed with the brand’s iconic ‘GG’ logo in season 7, episode 4.
