I have decided to add a classic navy pea coat to the mostly closed shop of the capsule wardrobe. Just because I got one recently and did a double take and high-fived the mirror at what an awesome piece of tailoring it is.

I was inspired by whatsisface in McMafia wearing one and I thought OOoo I want one of those, before becoming thoroughly bored with the programme and starting on Unabomber instead. First person to tell me I look like that ginger human trafficker WILL BE SHOT.

There aren’t that many peacoats around at the moment – (and I know I have written about pea coats recently so I maybe repeating myself here) – we STILL seem to be in the dog days of the sales, FFS!!, but I have found a few to inspire you.

Keep an eye out in the next few months if you don’t like any of these and I will also update if I track down a clear winner.

It’s not styled very nicely here, but I think this one (above) is really good.

It would normally be a “non” from me on these red wrist bands, but actually maybe they are cool.

Not strictly a peacoat, but this one will look really good on someone.
