has a nautical / navy - like feel.

Is that John Cusack in the first pic? If not, that's his lookalike!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 AM) : 

Beautiful "Pea Coat" , the effect of the golds buttons is Great- I want one!

Gold buttons on a rich navy wool? Always a good look as long as the size is right as shown here. i'm intrigued by the third picture - love the buttons high up on the shoulder - i guess they are for fastening a hood? wonder what the front looks like? i loved the Italian posts, how will Paris live up?

I was never a big fan of gold buttons. I think they look gaudy.


Blogger Mad Hatter said ... (9:34 AM) : 

love this coat,


Blogger jeffersonandwhat said ... (9:36 AM) : 

I like the third one


Blogger poor guy fashion victim said ... (9:36 AM) : 

absolutely italy!!
loving it


Blogger BTrain said ... (9:38 AM) : 

That is a classic piece of wardrobe. I love the buttons around the hood. Any idea about the manufacturer?


Blogger Alice said ... (9:41 AM) : 

oh, pleeeaase give me those coats!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:54 AM) : 

I don't especially like this mini-trend. Buttons, I think, should generally first be utilitarian--function before form. When they're fighting to make a statement on their own, they tend to limit one's own freedom to accessorize.


Blogger Laura said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Ooooh...I love the buttons on the hood!


Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (10:09 AM) : 

i love gold buttons.
they're a nice touch on the hood


Blogger Hemaly said ... (10:12 AM) : 

The detail on the last picture is my favorite!


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (10:21 AM) : 

Gold buttons scream for attention. It is a nautical look, one too bold for me to try. The only golden buttons I have came with an old Loro Piana cashmere jacket I found at a thrift store, and on the jacket they stayed, although I would switch them if I knew how to do it. I like the first example, but again it is too strong a statement, and they tend to overwhelm the outfit, IMHO. Jorge from W Palm Beach


Blogger Dominica said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Aaaah (sigh) a caban !
I'm a sucker for cabans (and the men in it ...)


Blogger J said ... (11:03 AM) : 

I love military-style coats and coats with gold buttons - I don't see enough of them (maybe has something to do to the fact that people don't wear coats in SoFla).


Anonymous MaxW said ... (11:17 AM) : 

Top jacket is gold.


Blogger Milo Beloved said ... (11:28 AM) : 

I know it's not, but it just smells Americana to me.

Good call.


Anonymous Paige said ... (11:46 AM) : 

hood buttons are so unusual and interesting
not a fan of gold buttons in general tho...too uniform-like


Anonymous Isobel Saoirse Dylan said ... (11:58 AM) : 

Makes the coat more playful!


Blogger joe t said ... (12:00 PM) :

Blogger pve design said ... (12:02 PM) :

Blogger thesearchforchic said ... (12:09 PM) : 

I Love gold buttons on jackets myself.. I have a short coat.. pea coat style.. I don't really see anyone else wear it so thanks for the pictures. =)


Blogger Geisslein said ... (1:02 PM) : 

Hm - the man of the first picture looks great...would love to see more pictures of him...


Blogger fabio said ... (1:05 PM) : 

Nautical in the City. Love it.


Anonymous crowsfeet said ... (1:45 PM) : 

I love the last photo! Navy wool coat and gray trousers in the fore flanked by puffer coats, beanies and jeans just out of focus.

And the bare nape of ivory neck and pink, cold ears are just all little boy wonderful. You know he kissed his mum before he left this morning!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Who is that first man, and when can I marry him?!


Blogger NVA said ... (2:34 PM) : 

nice details....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:58 PM) : 

I'm not crazy about the fit of the coat on the man.. it almost looks too big for him and I don't like the way it bulges when he sits down.
Otherwise it's a good and classic look you can't go wrong with.


Blogger Trent Moller said ... (4:36 PM) : 

Silver buttons look much better on a navy pea coat, check for yourself. But not bad.

AMO os gilden buttons...


Anonymous Yumei said ... (11:43 PM) : 

Cool Photos!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:21 AM) : 

i dont think silver looks better. in this kind of coats with the navy feel its all about gold and i love the effect. you have to be carefull and be sure to pull it off and not over-do the outfit so that it doesnt look like a fancy dress. but i like it.


Anonymous Philip said ... (6:11 AM) : 

hey i got the same it s the duffle coat from Ralph Lauren with the lovely details on should have feature a pic of the front...maybe next time


Blogger J.A.F. said ... (7:39 AM) : 

Since yellow gold jewelry seems to be making a comeback this seems natural...I really like the buttons. They look great against all the navy wool


Blogger pam.s said ... (8:45 AM) : 

i love the gold buttons, I believe that it is going to become a big trend.
my idea: buy a usual black or navy or white coat and replace the usual buttons with gold ones.


Anonymous YourFriend said ... (9:28 AM) : 

1st Picture: The jacket looks great, normally the shorter pea coat’s aren't that nice!
Would have worn navy blue leather gloves though, or a lighter brown, of course depending on his shoes.


Blogger Antwerp Fashion Observer said ... (10:09 AM) : 

hehe I have the exact same gloves as the guy on the first pic !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 AM) : 

Are there really that many Italian men who wear white pants in January?


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (1:16 PM) : 

wow, I should put some gold buttons on my jacket too!


Blogger Carl Freedom said ... (8:28 PM) : 

hmm...those gloves are seriously Pimpin', ready to put the smack down if need be. The coat looks expensive, the gold buttons I like. I wish I could see what is on the button, an eagle? The back of the jacket looks sort of funny, like a fat man in a little jacket. I'm sure its suppose to be that way, I can dig it.


Anonymous FPG said ... (9:44 AM) : 

That's the type of coat I'm looking for but in a more girly version :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:06 AM) : 

Does anyone the brand of the first peacoat? It looks fantastic.


Anonymous Bea said ... (1:18 PM) : 

reminds me of David Bowie in THe Man Who Fell To Earth. love it.


Blogger iluwfashion said ... (5:37 PM) : 

I love the first jacket. Looks like it's by Balenciaga. Lovely!


Blogger Tiphaine said ... (2:23 PM) : 

Wonderful caban !


Blogger Rockin' Rufus said ... (4:56 AM) : 

How about some rocker fashion for the hip rocker dad?

-rufus humphrey

Jorge! Please don't tell us you can't sew a button! Please return to the thrift store and find another jacket with buttons you love. Check that they fit through the button holes on your jacket, then just nip off the gold ones and replace them with the new ones.

Then offer the gold ones for sale on here because it sounds like they will be in high demand :)

These folks look fabulous in their outfits! The gold against the navy blue always looks right & is a classic combination that never goes out of fashion.
