Both are classics.

post #34 of 41 "As the temperature starts to drop, many white people are forced to start wearing winter coats. Though many will simply don outdoor performance gear, a great number will turn to the #1 white winter jacket of all time: The Pea Coat. The Pea Coat was originally worn by sailors and members of the European Navy. If you think about it for a second, this means that the coat is European, Coastal, and Vintage. Three of white people's favorite things. Another common characteristic of the coat is that white people will write their names on the label inside the coat. This is not done for fear of theft, but rather as a necessary precaution against party mixups. You see, when a white person attends a party in the winter time they will often be required to put their jacket in a room with literally dozens of other pea coats! Since these coats often contain ticket stubs to the same concerts and identical Trader Joe's receipts, it can be impossible to find the original owner without a name written inside. Like with sweaters, the process of acquiring a Pea Coat is almost as important as the coat itself. Fashionable white people can purchase designer pea coats for well over $1000, but the top ranked white people purchase their at Army Surplus stores. This makes them feel better than the white people have spent thousands of dollars on an identical piece of clothing. But perhaps the greatest value of the pea coat is its ability to help you determine which non-white people have been accepted into the ranks of white people. It is not known if the coat is given to them in an elaborate ceremony or if they buy it themselves, but in either case by wearing the coat they are telling the world that they have white friends. Long story short, if you want to increase your popularity with white people this winter, get a Pea Coat."

I love the pea coat, they've been everywhere for umm, pretty much the past 20 years. I have 2, a grey one from H in Chicago and a blue one from Muji in Beijing, both keep me warm and are an excellent choice as a casual winter jacket. There are only so many casual jacket choices, I can't imagine the pea coats ubiquity changing anytime soon.

^ Eh, I enjoy the self-loathing, mockery, and irony (#50 of things white people like).

It's basically "you might be a redneck" for yuppies.

I love my pea coat. I bought mine at Tall & Mighty for £100. Needless to say it's not the best quality (one pocket had a hole in it when I got it from the store, I noticed after I had left London) and it has some unbalanced elements in the design (I actually removed the hideous epaulettes), but hey it fits (I'm 6'6" so it's really a hassle to find anything in my size unless I go MTO).

It's a good informal garment for cold climate.

I like the look of a peacoat with skinny denim, which is a far preferable "casual" look than a lot of "dressy-casual".
