You can get a nice surprise when you discover something new. One such surprise was when I saw one of the looks in Simon Crompton’s Style Guide. In it, Simon wears what looks like a peacoat with dark corduroy trousers and sweptback single monks. I have a pair in shell but I’ve never thought of wearing them with anything other than a suit till now. Simon’s outfit looked great so I thought I would take some inspiration from that. Where he wears a shirt, I’ve subbed in a tan turtleneck which I think still works well. I hope he approves.

Peacoat - The Real McCoy’s
