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.

I love pea coats. I have been wearing them for years. I currently own 4 in different colors. I love the ones Brad and Gwyneth are wearing. I better rush out and buy more!

Gwen looks beautiful and stylish.
I like Brad’s too, but button it up! It looks sloppy with only the top button done and makes him look like he has a belly which he doesn’t!

I think Brad, Angelina, Gwen, and Jen are all beautiful intelligent people…..and I bet they all look good in peacoats. :)

Peacoats are timeless…when I move back to a state that has cold weather that’s first on my list of things to buy!

As far as the whole Angelina issue, without knowing what went on in her personal family life, no one can really understand. There could be any number of valid reasons she doesn’t want her dad to be a part of her life. That doesn’t mean she can’t truly love someone! Sometimes forgiveness is given, but to protect your life or your children’s lives, you have to keep at a distance. It sounds great to say you have to be at peace with your family to be a good person…but its simply not true.

The Pea Coat comes from the days of merchant sailing. The Captains, Firstmates, and Helsmen of their beloved ships were the ones that wore these coats. The coats were made out of thick heavy boiled wool that kept out the wind, cold, and salt water. These coats were so thick that ice would form on top and could be shaken off. The coats were only woren when on deck not going aloft to fix a sail. And, the coats were always a deep blue never black. The long version of the Pea Coat was only woren by a Sea Captain.
Just alittle fun trivia!

Always loved peacoats … classic, timeless, stylish AND warm to boot! I prefer the longer version {mid calf length}. I invested in a wool one in Germany in 1977 and almost 30 years later, it still looks brand new. Guess that proves that quality and TLC go a long, long way!

Life is not simple ,but you have to learn how to forget specialy when is your father, what kind of love she will teach to her kid, that crazy, you are not just walking around the world and show people love if you are not able to show that to your closest one, is stupid.
