Ask the MB: In Search of the Perfect Peacoat

John Varvatos Star USA Suede Peacoat via Bloomingdales, $895.00
John Varvatos Star USA Suede Peacoat via Bloomingdales. $895.00.
Q: I would hope that you are continuing your search for the perfect peacoat this year. It is a bit early in the season, but have you found any potential candidates? Price is not a factor.
--Aaron


A: Aaron, if you haven't noticed, as a result of the economy, most fall 2009 collections suck pretty hard, and peacoats are no exception. There is one standout, though, and it's this John Varvatos Star USA suede model. A real statement piece. The only bummer is that the collar is faux fur (principle of organic materials).

If $895 is too rich, GQ just published a Best Coats Under $500 piece that's worth checking out.

  • 1 raw sugar cube

  • 3 oz bourbon

On bottom of Old Fashioned glass (what else?) dribble bitters on sugar cube. Muddle. Fill with ice, then with bourbon. Garnish with lemon twist. No, not a thick orange wedge, handful of cherries, or a cup of fruit salad. A simple lemon wedge.
