Although the pea coat was originally worn by sailors, it goes perfectly with a dressy outfit. Its high collar brings presence and lets your shirt appear. Its metal buttons give relief to your outfit and it's "the" perfect detail to complete your look! This warm coat is very easy to wear over a suit jacket, provided it is longer than the suit jacket.
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.
It's just a matter of taste and outfit. The pea coat is available in different colours (navy blue, black, grey, and more). All you have to do is choose your favourite colour. Even if navy blue remains the classic colour of the pea coat, black and grey are also very easy to match with the different pieces of your wardrobe!
A quality pea coat is an investment, so it is essential to know how to maintain it so that it accompanies you as long as possible.
