The casual style pea coat : a safe bet

The short or fitted pea coat is easy to wear, in all circumstances. It is easy to associate it with more urban outfits. Combined with raw jeans, sneakers and a miki, it enhances the outfit without overdoing it. By wearing a turtleneck in a contrasting colour, the pea coat will highlight it thanks to its wide collar. If you are a man of small or medium height, prefer rather the short cut.
