The Wish List: Jess from New Girl’s Pea Coat

14 Nov

A lot of the things you will find on the TV Ate My Wardrobe wish list are coat related and as the temperatures are starting to drop dramatically it’s time to dig out the thicker outerwear. Today was the first day that my pea coat has come out of my wardrobe since the spring and while this denim number is still doing the trick (thanks to the super warm borg lining) it’s time to get serious with winter coats (not too serious though, that’s what December and January are for).

Many shows give us coat envy here at TV Ate My Wardrobe with Scandal being top of this list (when it comes to jackets and blazers that’s all The Good Wife) and Masters of Sex has been doing a good job of competing for this title. When you can’t afford Burberry, Armani or find the perfect vintage number then shows like New Girl might have a reasonable (ish) price alternative. When it comes to coat buying I’d rather spend a bit extra for something that will actually keep me warm and the great thing about a quality coat is that it will last for years (I just realized that I sound like my mother).


So the pea coat and on this week’s episode of New Girl Jess wore a traditional navy colored pea coat that is available from J. Crew. Pea coats were originally worn by sailors and typically have broad lapels and double-breasted fronts; it’s a timeless design that suits both women and men (see Joshua Jackson on Fringe). It’s super flattering as it cinches in at the waist and sits nicely on your hips. This one from J. Crew has a rather grand name; “Majesty” and old-school stadium blankets have inspired the fabric choice. It sounds super warm and that’s a key element to a really good pea coat and anything that was originally intended to be worn at sea is probably a good winter option.

There are more colors available than just the traditional navy like Jess is wearing on New Girl and this is perfect if you want to brighten your coat collection while also opting for a classic look. This version in gold is probably my favorite because anything with a vaguely mustard hue is generally my first pick.
