Embrace the cold this winter with Alexander McQueen’s contemporary take on the classic peacoat. If you haven’t already, you and your winter coat are going to become best friends over the next few months – so if you’re going to invest in new outerwear, you want to know you’ve made the right choice. This Alexander McQueen peacoat has just the right amount of classicism and innovation to serve you well throughout this winter, and many more to come.
Coming in navy blue and tailored with a traditional double-breasted structure, the Alexander McQueen coat is ideal for peacoat virgins. It’s sleek, sophisticated, impeccably tailored and masculine.
However, the good people at Alexander McQueen have left their own mark on this modern classic. The British design house, who are famous for their iconic, skull-emblazoned silk scarves, are all about mixing the hard with the soft – and this piece is no exception to their rule. The addition of cashmere and, most importantly, the contrasting silk detailing give this peacoat a softer touch that is subtle enough to complement, rather than distract from, the masculinity of the silhouette.
Additionally, the peacoat is beautifully tailored on the back, with the panel detail emphasising the masculine broadness of a double-breasted cut.
The peacoat has, and always will be, a sartorial favourite – it is never too late to pick up one that will last you a lifetime. Retailing at £1,125, invest in the Alexander McQueen Silk-detail peacoat at Selfridges.
