The Pea Coat Vibe

According to Webster the word vibe is defined as   a person's emotional state or the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others. The pea coat is defined as a short, double-breasted overcoat of coarse woolen cloth, formerly worn by sailors.  When you are aiming for a distinguished fashionable, stylish and professional look, I suggest to all the The Pea Coat Vibe. The Pea Coat can bring so much diversity to any individual’s wardrobe. The pea coat was originally worn in the Navy, Shockingly! The Navy trailblazed this fashionable look and we should all pay homage and be glad they did. The pea coat does wonders in the winter and the fall.

The Pea Coat comes in various styles, colors and lengths. It should be the outermost layer when wearing it. Below are a list of items, to piece together with the Pea Coat to keep your vibes positive.

1. Turtle necks

2. Suits  

3. Sweaters 

4.  Scarves 

5. Vest  

The Key to maximize The Pea Coat Vibe is layering up. Below are some pictures that do not belong to me but are great examples.

Turtle Neck Season

A wise man once said "when in season give me a reason"!! That wise man is known as no other than myself, Mr. Sharp Crisp Clean. Bowties as stated in previous blogs can take any outfit from boring to extraordinary, from dry to classic, from aww that's nice... to damn that's Sharp Crisp Clean!! As a SCC individual, standing out, making a difference and doing it while looking good should be the motivation. Just like the saying goes "we were all born original so why die a copy" gives us even more affirmation that we can be fashionable in a suit. 

Which leads me to why all SCC individuals should invest in turtlenecks. Ladies and gentleman it's turtleneck season for a reason!! Imagine a medium grey suit with a black turtleneck underneath with a Sharp Crisp Clean pocket square or a royal blue double breasted suit with an off white turtleneck and brown wingtips. I'm a strong advocate for Bowties but versatility is the aspect to all of life.  That versatility can be attained with the insertion of Turtlenecks within your wardrobe. Turtlenecks are pleasantries, sent from heaven above. A fashion statement that keeps you warm, dapper and brings instant sex appeal to any outfit.  

The turtleneck plays the role of the accent color when pairing it with a suit, so be careful in trying too do to much while wearing it. All of us are guilty of overthinking the most simplest things in life but I'm here to provide you with the keys to success.
