Pea coats are ten a penny on the high street, but All Saints’ grey wool version (£160) has vintage good looks which will set you apart from the mainstream.
The front double breast is slim enough to avoid all the chub-making perils of a normal double breaster, and the casual tailoring makes it wearable enough for the weekend as well as work. Team with fitted dark denim and a bright scarf for an effortlessly stylish casual outfit.

Time for a pea coat revival?

Bringing coat styles back from the dead seems to be a favourite of designers at the moment. They did it with the trench coat and they’re trying the same with pea coats, with stores from COS to Liberty stocking updated styles of this classic look.

With an item as classic as a pea coats it’s always possible that you could get a better version from a vintage store. Given the preference for slim fit styling right now, the vintage version could be a bit too outdated, so which do you go for?

While Topman do have a perfectly lovely version on their website, Vintage is the way to go with this one. This pea coat from Rokit is a better shade of navy blue and just has more character than the Topman version. It’s available from Rokit’s site and costs £30.
