Visit the link: Madder Print Silk Tie in Orange Red with Buff Micropattern Medium Size: https://gentl.mn/2kZzAPc I'll briefly discuss the Pea coat's history, its characteristics, the fabric and how you can buy one and what you pay attention to. It's not entirely clear where the Peacoat actually came from: - There is a Dutch version that says it came from the word "pijjakker". - There is a Reefer version which came from the men who climbed up the mast. -Others say it was the British manufacturer Camplin in the 1850s who invented it. -Some others argue that it first appeared in the tailor and cutter in 1869 as a pea jacket. One of the most important parts of the Pea coat is its fabric. The fabric used for Pea coats is called Melton, which is a woven fabric usually made of a 100% wool sometimes with a cotton weft. I suggest you go with a hundred percent wool versions which are higher quality and overall the coat is not that expensive. One of the defining parts of the Pea coat is its collar. It's called an ulster collar, it's very wide and it allows you to actually pop it up and button it that's why you have an extra button here on the side, that way, you're protected from the elements and it keeps you really warm when it's raining or when it's windy. A Pea coat has 8 buttons, it's always double breasted so four on one side and four on the other side. Then, you have a 9th button on top that allows you to wear your collar closed and protect yourself. The traditional pea coat buttons have a little anchor on them and are black plastic buttons and they're very popular and you see them all over the place today. Even brands like Ralph Lauren have come up with their own interpretation of that style but if you go to a regular military surplus store, they will definitely have the original navy issue pea coat. Of course, they've changed a little bit over the years but basically, you just have two options, you have black plastic buttons or you have gold brass buttons. The black plastic buttons are reserved for sailors at the US navy whereas the gold buttons with the eagle on them are reserved for officers and chiefs. The traditional cut of the pea coat is rather slim and it's actually wide at the bottom because the reefers had to move up and down the mast so they need a little bit more space. Usually, you will either see two short side vents or no vents or center vents for pea coats. The length of the pea coat is very important and it just reaches down to your hips maybe just a little below your hips but not any longer. Basically, you can cover a jacket with it and it's just a good alternative to have in your closet because it provides a different more youthful look. Pea coats have been around for a long time and even today, you can find old ones from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s or whenever. Every Pea coat comes with a little bit of history, you can usually find the owner's last name in there and if it was a US navy pea coat, you can always find the four last digits of the social security number. There is a store called Sterlingwear in Boston, I suggest you look on eBay, military surplus stores or consignment stores, you'll always find them there and they are usually well under a hundred dollars and considering the quality and the warmth, it's an amazing deal. Make sure you get the heavy about 24 ounce, 750 grams melton cloth. ======================================= To never miss any of our videos again, sign up here for free: http://gentl.mn/1S60nk9 Want to see more videos?

Petrol Blue Men's Gloves - https://gentl.mn/2CeGM1X 1. Don't just buy the same black boring overcoat that every other man out there has. Black, in my opinion, is quite overrated especially for overcoats because it shows every little hair and dust speck and you just blend in. 2. Do look for longer overcoats. By that, I mean something that covers your knee because you stay warmer that way and traditionally, it's a very classic look that won't go out of style anytime soon. 3. Do opt for hundred percent natural materials in overcoats. Unfortunately, even expensive overcoats these days are often blended because it makes the fabric less expensive and thus more affordable or increases the profit margins of the manufacturer. While polyester nylon fibers can make a garment more durable, they're not as insulating as natural fibers such as cashmere, or wool, or alpaca, and because of that, I'd stay clear of them. 4. Don't buy an overcoat with a zipper. Yes, you can see them in ski jackets and functional jackets but an overcoat is a classic garment that is stylish and as such, you'd go with buttons. 5. Opt for a double-breasted one. Yes, it's true that single-breasted coats are the norm out there but double breasted ones make you stand out from the crowd and on top of that, they keep you warmer because they have two layers of fabric on top of each other. 6. Don't forget the Hat. An overcoat is great to be worn with a hat because it keeps you warmer and because it's a classic garment, it is stylish, a hat always works well together. 7. Do wear a boutonniere or a pocket square with your overcoat. 8. Don't buy an overcoat that is too large and baggy because it makes you look unattractive. First of all, determine how you want to wear your overcoat. If you do want to wear a jacket underneath, make sure you have enough room in your overcoat. 9. Do look for striking yet classic details. No, I don't want you to wear bright orange reflective overcoats, however, I urge you to consider maybe an interesting weave in the fabric such as on this one here, where you can see, it consists out of gray, black, and blue, and because of that, it's super versatile because I can wear with all kinds of suits in those colors. 10. Don't buy overcoats that combine the styles of different overcoats because they will look dated very quickly. 11. Don't be afraid to invest a little money in a good-quality overcoat because it's something that will last you longer than a suit most of the time and you also have to buy fewer of them. 12. Do consider vintage overcoats. Personally, I love vintage overcoats because they have heavier fabrics that drape really really well and on top of that, they have interesting color combinations such as the coat I'm wearing here right now, in fact, most of the overcoats in my collection are vintage. 13. Don't mix an overcoat with casual attire. If you want to wear your sweatpants, maybe go with a quilted jacket or a hoodie and leave the overcoat at home. 14. Do look for heavy fabrics in an overcoat because they're much more forgiving, they don't show wrinkles as easily, and they'll keep you warm. 15. Don't show any cuff on an overcoat. With regular suit jackets or sport coats, most men want to show a little bit of their shirt cuff. With an overcoat, that's not the case, you want it to reach all the way down to the beginning of your thumb. 16. Do look for the little button in the vent area because when it's very windy, you can just close it and stay warmer that way. BONUS: If you wear an overcoat, try to add classic accessories such as a scarf or gloves. #overcoatsformen #mensovercoats #notsponsored --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is discussing three jackets that are critical - awesome & stylish! He's tried, had, and owned a lot of jackets in his style arsenal, but he always comes back to these three. If you have these three, you don't need any others (unless you are going skiing, doing something extreme, or need a climate specific coat). 1. Black puffer jacket - it looks dynamite with jeans. It's super warm while keeping you looking super cool. They range in prices. Pro tip:size down when you're purchasing as they look better slimmer in the body. 2. Leather jacket - you look like sexy stylish ninja. Unlike the puffer, you can dress it up. You need to understand that real leather is pricier but think of it as an investment. There are some incredible faux leather jackets out there too which more affordable. 3. Peacoat - it's one of the most perfect jackets ever created. It can be dressed down with jeans or up with slacks. Because it's double breasted, you can get a nice synch-ing action with the waist appearing smaller with shoulders broader. Popping the collar and adding a scarf, it's a great essential jacket that keeps you warm. The charcoal and navy are advisable. Price points are all over the board, ranging under $100 and then upward.
See our written guide, here: https://gentl.mn/overcoat-topcoat-greatcoat-explained Get your hands on the gloves I'm wearing: https://gentl.mn/2lAIceT 1. Overcoat Traditionally, that means it was a fabric that was heavier than 30 ounces per yard so it was really quite heavy and the goal was to keep you warm during cold winters. It was always so long that at least covered your knees and sometimes would go all the way down to the ankles. The first overcoat as we know it today was probably the Chesterfield. It was invented sometime around the 19th century, and today, they're very popular, mostly as single breasted with a velvet collar. In terms of styling features, there's really nothing you can't do. Patch pockets go well with a more casual fabric like the one I'm wearing here, right now. On the other hand, if you have a navy blue cashmere overcoat, probably flap pockets are better. When you have double-breasted, go with peak lapels, with single-breasted, you got to have notched lapels or peak lapels depending on what style you're going for. Unlike regular suit jackets, overcoats have something called the Ulster collar, and you can see it here on the trench coat. That means, it's like a notched lapel, but they go out very far. 2. Body coats It is either a tailcoat, a morning coat, or a frock coat. It has the name body because it's tailored so it sits very closely to your body, and it's a garment that is very formal in any case and therefore, you hardly see it anymore today. The best place to see morning coats is the Royal Ascot horse race in England or if you want to see a tailcoat, you have to go to a white tie ball, and frock coats are even older and mostly not worn by people anymore. 3. Great coat A heavy overcoat with a military heritage. Greatcoats include a British warm which is what I'm wearing here right now. Such as an Ulster or widely cut, double-breasted overcoats with a distinct v button silhouette. They're usually cut without any waist suppression meaning, they're very loosely fitting, they're heavy, and they're draping well. The whole idea was to create a garment that looked impressive and kept the men in the military protected at all times. Greatcoats are always double breasted because the military had this double breasted shape which is supposed to be more powerful and more impressive. You can also find epaulettes or other military hallmarks such as throat latches. For example, this overcoat here has the epaulettes which is part of the military heritage. If you like history, and you want an overcoat that keeps you warm, I can really recommend a British warm or another kind of greatcoat with a heavy fabric because they will last you for the years to come and always looks good and different from what other people are wearing. 4. Topcoat Technically, a topcoat used to be a lightweight over garment that was made of fabric that was 18 ounces or about 500 grams or less. Now back in the day, that was a lightweight, outerwear fabric. Today, it's actually a heavy outerwear fabric. Topcoats are typically only trench coats such as the one you can see here which is made of cotton gabardine. The idea of distinction was to have something that was really heavy for winters and something that was more lightweight for in between seasons in fall and spring. You should definitely have at least one topcoat and one overcoat in your wardrobe because they're just meant for different seasons, they have different weights, and they feel very different as well. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Most Popular videos: How to accept a compliment - https://youtu.be/_EKXNmM1PUo 101 things that change when you dress up - https://youtu.be/JyGDd_iYaCI How to tie a Bow Tie - https://youtu.be/2I3cfa0BOOc _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Want to stay updated?
