JOE FRESH PEA COAT FALL 2012

 

BUY RIGHT | While it may not possess the enduring absolutely-have-to-have status of an archetypal trench coat, the classic pea coat (it’s actually a jacket) is one of those iconic fashion items that enjoys recurring cachet.

While variations abound (CLICK HERE to see a range of interpretations), a close-to-authentic pea coat is what most serious fashionistas want. This pea—the type worn to this day by US Navy seamen—is a simple construction made of pliable Melton wool in a weight that is warm without being heavy. Cut slim (but never form-fitting or snug—you need be able to wear a sweater underneath), it is double breasted with six visible buttons, and it has a wide, deep lapel that can be buttoned to help make the collar stand up against the wind. This pea has a vent at the back, and vertical slash pockets in the front (the higher up the better) that are designed more for hand warming than carrying stuff. A true pea is always navy blue.

Pea Is For Perfect
