A Pea Coat is a double breasted jacket with naval origins. They are a beautiful mélange of style with utility. A Pea Coat is built for rough usage physically but looks sophisticated and polished. I think it is one garment that says,” I can look this Good even when I am working this Hard.” It is for a man who is not afraid to toil and wants to still look his best while doing so.
A Pea Coat besides having multiple uses like:
- Beating the cold and
- Braving the storm
Is also a very flexible and versatile piece of garment that can be worn formally as well as casually? Depending on the occasion, you can dress it up or down, with some staple pieces from your own closet. No extra boost required. And just like that you will stand out from the rest of the men. Since it is something you will wear very often and team up with different pieces in your wardrobe to create fresh new looks, I bring to you the 4 basic and neutral shades to opt for. These are easy to sport and easy to pair up. They are a safe bet, so I would recommend beginners and novices to go for any or all of these colors first. Once you get a hang of it you can experiment more. If you are the kind of person looking to buy just one pea coat then these are the colors you need to choose from. So here goes:
Suave and Sexy. Black Pea coat exudes mystery and puts you in a position of power. Works great for business and pleasure. Pair it up with red, blue or white denims or chinos to increase its range. Layer it with some great patterned or textured scarfs. Black is a classic color. You can even go for the monochrome look. Minimalistic fashion is in this season.
Grey is a nice break from the usual Black and Blue shades. If you wish to try a different hue but still want to play safe, then this is the color for you. It is formal, can be teamed up with white, black, navy, emerald, burgundy and even lime. Grey even works well when going monochrome. It is like having your cake and eating it too!
For men who love to dress in neutral colors, the tan pea coat is quintessential. Tan, camel Tan and rustic brown all work to add warmth to your persona and also make you look younger. They can be teamed up with both deeper and lighter shades of blue, black, green, red and grey.
