If you’re investing in a coat this winter, a peacoat is the best choice. Fashion designers have often tried creating new styles, taking a twist on army uniforms, and though not all have worked out well, the peacoat became a timeless hit. A well-fitted, classic peacoat is a must-have for every man.

Peacoats have been around for a while, always suiting up men to look their best during cold winters. The term ‘pea’ was derived from a Dutch word ‘Pije’ which means a coat of coarse woolen fabric. They were worn by European sailors in the 18th century to keep warm from cold sea winds. In those days, they had a more heavy and thick design.

The collar of a peacoat is something that draws attention. It can be worn down flat or worn up to protect the neck and ears from chilly winds. It usually features deep pockets, you can tuck your hands in when your fingers start getting numb. The peacoat complements a man’s physique with its broad shoulder and wide collar design.

This outerwear is dressy enough for a gala in town and casual enough for a stroll down the streets. For a casual take on the peacoat, wear it with dark wash jeans and a classic white tee.  Pair it with colored khakis or chords to make your outfit more interesting. With the peacoat, you can easily transform your causal look to formal by switching your jeans for a pair of flannels or wool trousers.

If you like wearing scarves, tuck them under the coat for a clean, polished look. Team the peacoat with a pair of chunky boots for an edgy look.

What do celebrities like Usher, David Beckham and Tom Cruise have in common? They like to suit up in a peacoat while they’re out and about.

The latest Bond sequel ‘Skyfall’ had our famous spy looking hot in a navy peacoat. The ‘Amazing Spiderman’ star, Andrew Garfield didn’t wear one in the movie, but was recently spotted wearing a navy peacoat with dark green skinnies on the streets of New York City.
