MEN’S OVERCOAT CASUAL LOOKS FOR FALL | THE CLASSIC PEA COAT

THE PEA COAT TIMELESS OUTERWEAR FOR MEN SINCE 1700

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 400 views

The Classic Peacoat Trend for Men is Timeless to wear this Winter

We’re not quite there yet, but I just thought I’d share with you some of my favourite picks out there on the high street for winter coats and jackets ideal for keeping the wind chill out. I think everyone should have at least a classic staple such as a peacoat which never goes out of style and keeps you warm and snug in the cold while out and about.

I don’t know about you, but there’s always an opportunity to window shop as there’s so many great brands to choose from at reasonable prices to compete with the designer brands and does not break the bank.

Peacoat for Men

 

I remember the first time I tried out this peacoat style I was actually looking for a coat that fits closely to the body as well as being warm inside too

Definitely something you should consider when looking around as fit and quality is most important to me and not comprising on style.

 

“The Peacoat Jacket in STYLE since the 17th Century”

Come to think of it, when tracing back to the origins of the peacoat style throughout history it is in fact a Military Maritime coat used at sea by Sailors.

Traditional colours which are most common are dark navy to more non traditional black that offers timeless outwear since the seventeenth century.

Peacoat for Men

The Classic Peacoat originally worn by Sailors as Maritime Uniform.

The first thing that comes to mind when investing in a new men’s coat for winter to wear outside is that you want it to look effortless to pair with everyday style staples as a statement piece.

 


Timeless Outerwear for Men – The Classic Navy PEACOAT 


These coats come in different lengths too but personally I like mine mid calf instead of full length to match my height including both single and double breasted jackets to choose from according to style preference.

Even though it get’s very cold in London this coat style is perfect to see you through the bleakest of mid winter at least til the very end when we can once again look forward to spring time.

GETTING READY FOR GOODWOOD REVIVAL | STYLED & FITTED IN TWEED BY DESIGNER ELOISE GREY

Dressing for Goodwood Revival in 40’s inspired Menswear for the Day

Goodwood Revival

#MyRevival

Who can forget the smell of engines with the roar of iconic race cars. Experience a thrilling three day festival celebrating the halcyon days of motor racing and vintage style

I remember my first ever visit to Goodwood Revival because it was so memorable. Also, it was an opportunity to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane and experience vintage clothing and costume from a bygone era at its finest.

Goodwood Revival

 

Revival fashion on the day tells the story of fashion throughout the revival era. You can re-live it all from the evolution of the hemline, how men’s iconic style changed from nineteen forty eight to nineteen sixty six and the sub culture phenomenon of the Teenager.

So excited I’m collaborating with Tweed Jacket Designer Eloise Gray for my fitting to get ready for Goodwood Revival today and really looked forward to attending this year’s event.

 

“Revival Fashion #GoodWoodStyle”

While I was here I got to have a bit of wonder to see what was going on from vintage clothing stalls, food pop-ups, street performance singing quartets to the Goodwood circuit track to check out the vintage classic cars.

The memorable highlights of the day were close racing, tight overtakes, roaring engines, screeching cross-plys, spitfires flying overhead to various vintage outfits and stores.

Who could forget the Revival Greats from the legendary cars highlights from Jaguar E-Types, Ferrari 250 GTOs to Lister Knobblys, Alfa Romeo 1600 Guilia GTAa and Shelby Daytona Coupes.

It was a spectacular day out and I got to wear an amazing tweed suit from talented UK Ethical Fashion Designer Eloise Grey on the day. Tweed is very much in style these days and the only thing I own is from Harris Tweed Made in Britain which is a classic statement piece. Also, works well when you pair it with other items in your closet like a trilby and nice brogues perhaps. I had the most stupendous weekend playing dress up, fashion shows and trying swing dancing was great fun with friends at Goodwood Revival. It was an opportunity to travel through style in time and make some new nostalgic memories. I’ll see you there next year!

LONDON FASHION WEEK STYLE DIARY: WHAT I WORE AT THE BEN SHERMAN SS 19 SHOW

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 384 views

As a matter of fact I chose to pair a tailored jacket with weekend essential staples such as a  simple t-shirt for a smart casual look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colour against other textures which can look great in contrast to one another. I felt today I wanted to capture the essence of Summer in London but with a resort sort of feel.

For instance, hence the t-shirt evoking a bit a bit nautical details as its’ all about being outdoors making the most of a sunny day in June. Alternative separates apart from your conventional Light weight denim could be chinos also if you want to dress it up a little more depending on the occasion such as sporting events in English Social Calendar this weekend at Polo in The Park Fulham. I’m at Fashion Week anyway and that’s what I’m up to going to shows during the day and if there’s time to catch up with friends why not!
