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 Given the preference for slim fit styling right now, the vintage version could be a bit too outdated, so which do you go for?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.

Cheap Monday look set to keep on branching out with their KOSTYM
range. Featuring suits, trench coats and the ubiquitous check shirt, the detailing on the items is what they’re hoping will set them apart. The asymmetrical buttoning on the trench coats is similar to 70′s leather jackets and the suits are very slim fit.

After H&M’s buyout of the company it’s interesting to see the brand move into suits. Topman are pretty much the only company specializing in tight suits and it’ll be interesting to see if H&M start stocking Cheap Monday in a select few of their outlets in order to compete. If you can’t wait that long you can order some of the Kostym range from Alter.
