Pea Coat Price Points | Does Higher Price Equal Higher Quality?
The pea coat is versitle for fall and winter. In this video men’s style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro describes the attributes and construction of the pea coat.
Three Options in Three Price Points
Alpha discusses three pea coat options in three price points. Check out department stores for all price points. Color choice should be gray or navy blue because you can wear with black or brown shoes. It boils down to fit so size down! If you can button it, it’s the right size. Don’t have a big boxy jacket.
- American Rag | Twill Pea Coat $100 price point (Macy’s) with nice fit with wool / poly blend. Weight is light with plastic buttons.
- INC International Concepts | Double-Breasted Pea Coat $250 price point from (Macy’s) with a better fit and higher arm holes. It’s a bit heavier and longer of a jacket but not that much better quality than #1.
- Ted Baker | Herringbone Wool-Blend Pea Coat $500 price point from London. The fit is flawless and the quality is better (78% wool) and much heavier. Nicer details are also apparent. In conclusion, however, the American Rag does the same in regard to offering you a versitle jacket for fall and winter.
