Sure, you might’ve missed out on the great peacoat craze of the mid aughts, when people were snapping ’em up by the dozen in an Americana-induced frenzy, but that’s why now’s the time to go all-in on the style. You never really want to invest in a trend when it’s peaking, man. Much wiser to wait it out and get in on the action once the brouhaha’s died down and you’ve had time to consider if the damn thing actually works for you.
Thankfully, calling the peacoat a mere “trend” is a grave disservice to an outerwear silhouette that’s stood the test of time better than almost any other. (Like, literally any other.) And now, a decade-plus after s of rugged-looking dudes rocking the style first started making the rounds on a small subset of the blogosphere, the peacoat’s suddenly starting to look pretty, pretty good again.
This time around though, there’s no reason you need to stick to a classic military-inspired take on the style. Hell, you can even go really crazy and—gasp!—opt for a color other than navy (you daring sartorial daredevil, you). Either way, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite options to get this particular round of the peacoat’s resurgence started in style. So anchors aweigh, folks, because this ship’s about to set sail. Destination: Big Fit Island. ETA: As soon as you commit to copping.
