Button fly- for the boys

Long live the pea

Long live the pea, the pea is dead…. or so we thought. This winter season marks the first in recent years where a strong offering of pea alternative winter coats has arrived.

Consistently wonderful at outerwear (and yet ever surprising) All Saints bring us the huntington coat which is available in ‘snow cuddling’ fawn and ‘brisk walk’ charcoal.

This piece does what most winter coats only dream of… it reinvents the genre in an effortless way.

The funnel collar, asymmetrical button line, smooth front (concealed button holes which we secretly love but please don’t tell) and the welcoming of fawn to the coat mainstream.

The huntington is a standout yet understated work accessory and also bridges the casual/smart casual gap so easily given its modern detail. Aside from all, the huntington looks equally alluring when its undone and open to the elements a key test for any winter coat- the asymmetrical concealed button line attracts and intrigues. We love the pea… but like with any true love sometimes you need to let go…
