The classic peacoat, originally crafted with navy wool and worn only by European and American navy sailors, has become a wardrobe staple for the modern man. The peacoat has transcended beyond its nautical beginnings into a versatile style of coat that is available in multiple colours and fabrics, and can be worn as part of a sophisticated tailored ensemble, or paired with a simple tee and jeans for an elevated casual look.
What is a peacoat?
A men’s peacoat usually features a double-breasted front, broad lapels, vertical or slash pockets, large buttons, a short length, and is made with heavy wool. Although, some brands make small design changes to reflect current trends, such as longer lengths, or using cashmere or cotton instead of wool.
How do I style a peacoat?
The beauty of the peacoat is it’s incredibly versatile. A peacoat can virtually be worn with anything; from a t-shirt and jeans to a three-piece suit, a peacoat will effortlessly elevate your look while keeping you warm.
