    Just curious, what's the consensus on popping peacoat collars around here? Old-school-classic or abercrombie-pretentious?

    Personally, I think it looks better popped - yet I don't want to come off the wrong way, especially as a young guy (18 yrs) who has yet to earn his worth. As for functionality, I believe they were meant to be popped too - or I could be mistaken.


    Thoughts?

    I sometimes pop when it's really cold or when there's excessive moisture in the air. I hate having a cold neck.

    My opinion, as a young guy (19), is that they don't look good popped. Whenever I wear mine I pair it with a scarf for added style / warmth

    I think you should only do it when the weather calls for it.

    I think it's a good look on peacoats. Nothing else though.

    It can work on anything. As always, it depends on context.

    Sometimes I pop it, and sometimes I don't. Do what feels comfortable to you. IMO both look good.

    Looks good on wool coats, but I only do it if it's really windy/rainy/snowy/cold.

    Although I am not an advocate of the popped collar in almost all cases it seems to work on the peacoat

    I am vehemently opposed to popped collars on everything else I can think of, but you have to do it with a peacoat. They were made for it.
