Get the Look: His and Hers Peacoats

12/21/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

Even though they haven’t been a romantic item for years, Brad Pitt and ex-fiance Gwyneth Paltrow are still on the same style wavelength. During his and Angelina’s visit to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, Brad kept warm in snowy Pennsylvania with a millitary peacoat. A few weeks later, Gwyneth buttoned up in a similar black coat leaving a London gym. Peacoats are always fashionable, but both of theirs offer a nice twist on the classic style, with chic epaulets on the shoulders. Here’s a roundup of similar peacoats in stores right now.

How i wish they just ended up together and they would probably be the chicest couple with 3-5 good looking children!!! Brad would not have broken Jen’s heart and he would not have gone desperate for children by being with Angelina who shows to the world how good and humane she is to the 3rd world countries when she herself cannot even stop HATING her own father.

those people in the 3rd world country has not done anything to hurt her feelings, unlike her dad. there are a LOT of people who are helping charities but they do not have good relationships with their own family.

Um- guess someone doesn’t like Angelina. Anyway… love the coats. Comfy, warm and stylish.

I think Brad and Angelina make a wonderful couple. People need to stop critisizing them. Why do people assume that Brad broke Jennifer’s heart, maybe he was sick of her thinking about her career instead settling down and having the family he’s always wanted. Brad and Angelina are in love, leave them alone. They do amazing humanitarian work, for countries in need. They are using all of the money they make to help people instead of buying pricy houses and clothes. The last time I checked the USA was not a third world country. I commend all of the charity work they’re doing. They are also opening up a lot of other celebrities to adopt. And what does Jennifer Anniston do? She doesn’t do any charity work that I am aware of.

Love the coat for him or her! Kaye…come on. I mean people need to get over the whole Brad-Jen deal. He chose what is best for himself and look at the end result…a beautiful child & they are helping out those who are less fortunate. Who cares about Angelina’s deal with her dad…we don’t know the whole story and frankily it is none of our business. They are a beautiful couple and obviously Gwyneth is happy as well.

Lets just wish both couples happiness as they BOTH have beautiful happines. Back to the subject…both coats are great and look very classy.

Brad Pitt did not cheat on Jennifer Aniston. He FELL OUT OF LOVE with her before he met Angelia Jolie which is understandable……….Aniston is boring.

YES, it can happen…falling out of love…….and it’s ashame that love/relationships are put under a freaking MICROSCOPE in Hollywood!! Who are We as the public to say anything! People are so in love and/or infatuated with being in love, it’s very concerning!?

But, about these wonderful coats!
The Pea Coat has always been so stylish, sexy, and smart!!! Brad wears it well and so does Gwyneth.

Plus, I think these two are happy with their current lives and both have an understanding and most important a RESPECT for each other, which is good.

I really love the people here who give comments, they are good and confident people. Readers of PEOPLE magazine are civilized people and I admire them for that.

My comment earlier was out of being naive or curious … I mean Angelina already destroyed a relationship between Billy Bob and Laura and I belive the cliche “history always repeats itself” …. and knowing Angelina she loves challenges and OBSTACLES, it was probably a challenge for her to get Brad away from Jennifer, and she won. And most of all I believe that the only way you can give GENUINE LOVE to other people is when you are at peace with yourself and that includes being at peace with your family.

….This my friends are just my honest opinion. I am a realistic person and I am not a hypocrite.

Hello, we’re supposed to be talking about peacoats! Why do these things always turn into gabfests about celebrity misdoings???

Back to the coats: LOVE EM! I lived in my peacoat in college during the 90’s. I had a dark blue one, and even wore a blue knit hat. My dad asked if I had joined the navy.
Now, I wear a black cropped hooded style, a blue one (sorry dad) and a longer styled black one. It’s just a classic style that makes everyone look intstantly put together!
