Always In Style: Classic Peacoats Look 1
June 29th, 2012
1. The OG Naval Issue
I figured we’d start with the original.
Some of the best peacoats were commissioned by the military and issued to the naval academy. They were made from tough and rugged navy blue wool and were built to keep their shape through the toughest conditions.
The best part is, you can usually find a reasonably priced selection at just about any decent vintage store.
Bonus Tip: Whenever buying army or navy gear (and vintage most of the time) keep in mind that you may have to size down to get the fit you are looking for.
Bonus Tip II: Yes, you can wear it over a suit. As long as the coat is longer than the jacket, and it fits comfortably over the shoulders and midsection, it’s fair game.
