Original Penguin Floyd Coat – SALE $149.99 (Org. $225.00)
So you still haven’t put away your favorite wool overcoat. It’s May. Time to move on to something lighter, cotton, maybe a bolder pattern. Lucky for you Original Penguin’s cotton-blend Floyd Coat just went on sale.
Simple in shape and structure, this is a coat with character in the pattern. Buffalo plaid. But tonal blue on blue so it’s not overpowering. Its got a four button front, standard collar, and a couple of slash pockets up front for your hands.
Original Penguin didn’t have to create an entire new line dedicated to the smartly tailored retro-feel… but they did anyway. This coat belongs to their new “Abbot Pederson Collection”. I’ll let OriginalPenguin.com provide the description: “Classic, casual, well-tailored pieces inspired by the Original Penguin Archives.”
Moderation in all things, so be warned. Dress head to toe in any sort of throwback line and you’ll look like you just stepped off the set of The Legend of Baggar Vance. But layer this over a smartly tailored modern suit, and you’ve got a hell of a look that’ll turn some heads.
