Encouraged by the success of Autumn/Winter 2010 Longshore Pea Coat, Denham include an updated version of the garment for their new Autumn/Winter collection, reaffirming its status as one of their key outerwear designs. The Pea Coat arrives in not one, but a trio of exciting fabrics; black painted canvas, (Fox Brothers & Co) Melton wool and robust Japanese denim. The coat’s overall design draws influence from vintage naval outerwear, yet deviates from the box-fit of archetypal works attire, parading a number of modernist revisions and a streamlined silhouette.
The various fabrications offer an intelligent spectrum of choice, each with its own unique selling points; the painted canvas exudes a sense of contemporary flair, the Melton wool airs of the side of tradition and the denim option subtly hints at Japan’s fixation with all things Americana, the later providing a great transitional piece from late summer through to autumn. -jr
