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

Always pop your collar!* Steve McQueen would do it.

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.

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.
