Best Men's Peacoats

The 15 Best Men’s Peacoats

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, STYLE By

Make no mistake, the best men’s peacoats are certainly worthy of having on your radar — and on your back this season. The peacoat is a style rooted in the type of practicality that guys need and enjoy nowadays, with roots in military function — yet plenty of modern style to back it up.

This historic silhouette has remained largely unchanged in its classic iteration, but some of your favorite designers are taking this icon and making it a dash more modern. That’s good news for you, and it means that you can wear a classic, tailored peacoat with grey wool trousers and black chukka boots (a la James Bond) or alongside slim black denim and a crewneck sweater (similar to how style icon David Beckham wears his).

Yes indeed, it was mighty tough to narrow this list down to just 15, but we think we did alright — you be the judge, and be sure to shop some of the best men’s peacoats before it’s too late.

Ralph Lauren Warrington Peacoat

Ralph Lauren Warrington Peacoat

There are some things that certain brands just do well — very well. Take Ralph Lauren. The brand is as iconic and American as it gets, so is it any surprise that they’ve produced their own suitably fitting take on a classic outerwear style? The Warrington Peacoat is a piece that manages to convey a strong, bold look — yet it won’t detract from any sharp tailoring that you choose to wear it with. The Italian-made construction and premium virgin wool are among the best of the best, so it’s no shock that this handsome peacoat will set you back nearly 3 grand. Maybe add it to your wish list? – Buy It

Orvis Naval Peacoat

Orvis Naval Peacoat

With the spirit of rugged adventure in mind, Orvis has churned out a peacoat that your father or grandfather would be proud to wear — that means it delivers in terms of tough functionality and expert styling potential. The blend of melton wool and nylon is crafted to military specifications, so it can surely handle any wind, rain or snow you deal with this winter. Polyester fill ensures extra warmth, too. We think this peacoat would look outstanding layered over a marled navy henley and worn with tan chore pants — plus your toughest leather boots. – Buy It

J.Crew Dock Peacoat

J.Crew Dock Peacoat

J. Crew continues to be a one-stop shop for outstanding menswear that’s built for everyday wear — that’s true even in an era where retail is changing seemingly by the week. But there’s no need to worry about quality or styling issues with the J. Crew Dock Peacoat, the type of uniquely rugged-yet-modern style that the brand does so well. Made from cotton in a cool shade of vintage indigo, this peacoat draws inspiration from strong military silhouettes and throws in a dash of weather-ready functionality thanks to the corduroy collar. – Buy It

Billy Reid Wool Peak Lapel Peacoat

Billy Reid Wool Peak Lapel Peacoat

What kind of peacoat would James Bond wear? Perhaps the more accurate question is what kind of peacoat does James Bond wear? For the time being at least, it’s a Billy Reid peacoat, one that we should all aspire to own — right? Made with premium wool felt and featuring unique peak lapels, it features a slim, trim fit that’s still mobile and easy to layer (see Bond’s Shanghai adventures in Skyfall for reference). If you want to feel like Bond (at least a bit), then start with this peacoat and build your outfit from there. – $130

Belstaff Stoddard Peacoat

Belstaff Stoddard Peacoat

Belstaff has built its brand on creating outerwear that’s ready for the road and the country, and with its Stoddard Peacoat, the brand shows it can make city-ready gear, too. As the brand says, it injects a bit of “subtle moto attitude” into a style that finds its roots in the military — it’s a welcome touch for the modern man, one that’s worth the price tag (over a grand in U.S. dollars). Leather-trimmed pockets and quilted sleeve detailing drives home that moto inspiration, while the black color is sharp and easy to pair with winter style staples. – Buy It

Dunhill Double-Breasted Wool-Felt Peacoat

Dunhill Double-Breasted Wool-Felt Peacoat

Dunhill manages to capture classic British style and a continental appeal with its handsome, refined double-breasted peacoat — as you’d expect from this mainstay Transatlantic brand. Featuring old-school style details like a throat latch in addition to the customary double-breasted silhouette, this style is a bit more tailored than other picks on this list. That’s good news if you plan to layer this modern icon over a crisp light blue dress shirt and a merino V-neck sweater (which we certainly endorse this winter). Add sturdy wingtip dress boots and get ready for that first snowy day. – Buy It

Theory Double-Faced Cashmere Peacoat

Theory Double-Faced Cashmere Peacoat

With a focus on crisp, minimal and easy-to-style pieces, it makes sense that Theory would produce a handsome, refined and well-made peacoat. The kind of peacoat you’re going to want to wear with slim black denim and tan suede chukka boots, namely. The kind of peacoat you can style with a navy crewneck sweater and dark blue denim for monochromatic style. It’s helpful, then, that this peacoat features premium Italian cashmere, perfect for adding a bit of luxury to your daily ensemble. Just add slim wool trousers and black dress boots — your next big day at the office is already covered. – Buy It

Schott Leather Naval Peacoat

Schott Leather Naval Peacoat

Looking to inject even more moto-inspired edge into your winter layering game? We turn once again to Schott, who’s taken the classic peacoat silhouette and done it up in rich black leather, as you might expect from a brand that makes some of the most iconic jackets on the planet. The nylon quilted lining offers extra warmth and durability, while the cowhide leather exterior is cool and sleek, not flashy. Layer it over a cream thermal henley and team that combo with slim black denim and beat-up moto boots for truly badass seasonal style. – Buy It

Tom Ford Wool-Blend Peacoat

Tom Ford Wool-Blend Peacoat

If you normally associate Tom Ford with beautiful tailoring, fragrances and accessories, don’t sleep on the brand’s standout attention to detail and quality when it comes to the Wool-Blend Pea Coat shown here. It’s a jacket done just exactly as you might expect from Tom Ford, featuring an oversized notch collar and large buttons, plus the sort of strong fit designed to accentuate your shoulders. The sleek black color also helps any guy look great — layer this piece over your best white dress shirt-navy sweater combo and add a black knit tie (plus pinstripe trousers) for a seriously cool, office-ready look. – Buy It

Abercrombie & Fitch Italian Wool Peacoat

Abercrombie & Fitch Italian Wool Peacoat

The ongoing transformation of Abercrombie & Fitch into a brand that pays homage to its classically rugged and adventurous roots is a welcome change, at least according to us. And that change continues with the introduction of this premium Italian Wool Peacoat, a style that’s at once rugged, tailored and uniquely affordable. Based on a naval jacket style from more than a century ago, it’s a stylish and wearable piece that would look at ease with either heather grey joggers or classic khaki chinos. Winter doesn’t stand a chance thanks to this piece. – Buy It

Ralph Lauren Wool-Blend Melton Peacoat

Ralph Lauren Wool-Blend Melton Peacoat

Can’t get enough Ralph Lauren outerwear? Then you’re going to like the Wool-Blend Melton Peacoat, made with a comfortable wool-nylon blend in a classic navy color. It’s the ideal in terms of a classic peacoat, yet upgraded for the modern man on the go. In this case, the brand made its Wool-Blend Melton Peacoat with a removable liner for extra protection, warmth and styling potential. We think this peacoat pairs best with your most comfortable jeans and durable retro hiking boots. Is it worth the price tag at nearly $900? We certainly think so. – Buy It

Scotch & Soda Wool Peacoat

Scotch & Soda Wool Peacoat

Scotch & Soda is perhaps best known for taking classic styles and silhouettes that you know and love, and punching them up a bit thanks to stellar fabric and seriously cool styling potential. Such is the case with the brand’s Wool Peacoat, a uniquely modern and slim-fitting number that’s here just in time for winter. The large notch lapels and double-breasted front call to mind classic touches from peacoats in past years, while the navy color is versatile and easy to pair up with everything from burgundy corduroys to grey joggers. – Buy It

Schott Slim Fit Peacoat

Schott Slim Fit Wool Blend Peacoat

If you normally associate Schott with utterly classic, iconic and timeless leather jackets … well, you’re entirely right on the money. But the brand has also done beautifully when it comes to making other equally iconic, rugged and easily wearable styles, like the brand’s Slim Fit Wool Blend Peacoat. And if a peacoat is more of your speed than a black moto jacket, this could be the very piece you want to pick up now. Featuring a nylon-wool blend and a versatile charcoal color, this peacoat is wearable with faded blue denim or burgundy chinos in equal measure. – Buy It

Calvin Klein Wool Blend Peacoat

Calvin Klein Wool Blend Peacoat

Just like a few other brands on this list, Calvin Klein is among a set of instantly recognizable global brands, ones that specialize in making classic-yet-modern menswear — the Wool Blend Peacoat brings that same approach to outerwear. Available for a downright steal in terms of price, this simply designed peacoat features the iconic notched collar and reliable fit you need when it comes to an essential winter jacket. We’d wear this piece with slim grey denim, a comfortable navy crewneck sweater and black wingtip boots for a mix of high–low styling. – Buy It

Taylor Stitch Mendocino Peacoat

Taylor Stitch Mendocino Peacoat

As Taylor Stitch so wisely says, they made the Mendocino Peacoat with “no detail spared.” It’s an approach that we’ve come to expect from a brand that makes some of our favorite gear out there, from perhaps the perfect pair of slim chinos to a classic chambray shirt. You can add this peacoat to that list. Made with an incredibly rare archival Luxe Italian Wool found in the Golden Bear archives, this style is highly, highly limited — that also means that it’s been built to exacting specifications, featuring leather detailing and custom-dyed buttons. – Buy It
