The Peacoat has been a cornerstone of the gentleman’s wardrobe for over three centuries; changing very little in this time. Built for the hardiest of conditions, the peacoat made its way onto the boulevards of fashionable Paris via visiting mariners at a time when men were turning away from fanciful brocade and embellishment and embracing practicality and military-inspired utility. The double-breasted button stance and a stand collar provided the wearer with much protection from the elements.
Like many Timothy Everest ready-to-wear pieces, our new Wool Peacoat started life as a one-off garment cut and tailored by our bespoke department. Having been set the task of creating a piece of outerwear that added unique twists to a recognisable classic, we added some refinements to this tried and tested bit of kit, elevating it to a little more out of the ordinary. Replacing the stand collar with a full shawl collar adds a dramatic line to the garment, while still providing the warmth the wearer craves. A simple three-show-three button placement and angled welt pocket make for a pleasingly unfussy look. The hip length cut coat is available in traditional Navy Blue and a deep rich Khaki Green to coordinate perfectly with our Autumn/Winter 18 collection.
