Pea coat poppycockery. - Page 2

post #16 of 41
Even three years go it was impossible to find a peacoat under $300 unless you were buying from an Army Surplus. SF had threads galore about "where to get a good peacoat" and "peacoats under $200" and fawning all over peacoats in general.

So don't start backlashing something you know you were hyping up last year.

Bollocks. I had no difficulty finding one for $80 at Nordstrom Rack (marked down from the original price of $150 at Nordstrom.) I shouldn't think location would have such a dramatic affect on price. I could be wrong.

And I bought one for about $50 from an Old Navy outlet seven years ago. They've been cheap and ubiquitous (if not high-quality) for a long time.

I remember people wearing them in HS in the early to mid 90s. I have one, it's a J Crew Peacoat with Thinsulate. I wear it in Chicago in the winter time, so the guy claiming that they didn't keep him warm is farqing crazy. Is it becoming ubiquitous? Yes. Do I care? No. Style is nice, I would like it if style became ubiquitous, but women still insist on wearing leggings as pants.

Whoever says peacoats aren't warm has never worn a decent peacoat. They're crazy warm!

love peacoats.

amusing how one op would start an opinion in a thread (merited nevertheless) but then a whole slew of posters reply according to groupthink of the particular thread.

I really don't mind this trend, at all.

I bought a peacoat from Sterlingwear within the past 2 years. The fabric isn't soft and luxe, but it's stylish and keeps me warm. It's my go-to casual coat down to about 25F. Needless to say, I'm a fan of peacoats, though not necessarily peacoats from fashion brands.

Nothing wrong with duffle coats, either.

Both are classics.

I bought mine in October of 1988. Some things are not style or fashion, but an entity. The peacoat is one of these. I guess I was guilty of groupthink back then.

Eh, saying peacoats are a trend or a fad is like saying suits or leather jackets or sneakers are a fad. It's just a kind of coat. It's been around for thousands of years* and it's not going anywhere. It is in a boom period at the moment, but so is everything eventually.

Striving for "classic style" is trendy right now so we're just seeing classic items being worn around because a) thats what the stores are stocking and b) because its fucking trendy.

There will always be trainwrecks and tryhards but overall I support people getting into style again after 40 years of endless shittery.

END.

I considered getting a peacoat but I've recently seen them more seldom then I hope to. The trend is getting too big. Usually I buy things not everyone else wears b/c looking the same as the person next to you at the bus stop is pretty lame.

There aren't a ton of casual wool coat designs out there, for obvious reasons.

I laugh at all the luxury pea coats everytime I wear my slimly cut $70 vintage pea coat that has uses thicker and rougher wool, its going to last me long during the cold. And not to mention has an uncommon 10 buttons, great for pulling away emphasis on my short height.
