Fall Lusts & Musts I: Pretty Pea Coats

After foolishly letting go of my beloved navy pea coat last year (shown in second pic below), I'm on the hunt for the perfect replacement. The one below is from J. Crew, but I found it far too expensive. I know the ideal vintage one is out there....anyway, this is the first item at the top of my Fall Lusts n' Musts list!

That pea coat looks fantastic on you, I can completely see why you're yearning to find a replacement for it. I'll keep my eyes thoroughly peeled for you while doing my usual online clothing hunts, as well as offline, too.

Though not an exact duplicate, I have seen somewhat similar pea coats at Sears and Reitmans over the years, if you're opening the field up to modern sources.

I LOVE peacoats. I have a navy one, but unfortunately I don't get to wear it very often as it never gets cold enough where I live (northern Australia). Yours is gorgeous :)

Such a cute photo of you! I agree, the right pea coat must be somewhere out there waiting for you, and it is definitely a perennial favorite.

I don't know if you have them in Canada, but in the States we have Army/Navy Surplus shops and an actual peacoat could be had for not a lot of dough. Might check one out if you do have them. They are such a great classic design. Good luck!
