Korean label Wooyoungmi offers their take on the classic peacoat, delivering it in a wool-blend shell that’s got a hint of cashmere. Available in camel brown, the coat features wide lapels and a stand collar for a modern silhouette. Available now at MR PORTER.
Selectism turns us to this Denham’s Longshore Pea Coat, which the label’s made available in three different fabrics. Apart from the Japanese denim shell you see above, the Pea Coat’s available in black painted canvas and (Fox Brothers & Co) Melton wool as well. “The coat’s overall design draws influence from vintage naval outerwear, yet deviates from the box-fit of archetypal works attire, parading a number of modernist revisions and a streamlined silhouette.” There’s a fresh blend of American heritage and Japan’s desire for detail and functionality.
Band of Outsiders delivers this lightweight double-breasted peacoat in waterproof cotton twill that’s been fitted with a hood as well as gold button detailing. It’s made in Italy and as you’d expect, the cut is impeccable.
There are plenty of peacoats out there and we’ve mentioned a few others in recent weeks. The Kaiser peacoat by Hyden Yoo caught our attention due to its melton wool shell and the double breasted closure. The dark navy color is definitely a plus as well as it breaks away from the black peacoats we’re accustomed to seeing out in the wild.
