The Black Peacoat from Banana Republic. Image from Item #774661.

Guess what?

We found the jacket you are going to wear for your holiday and new years parties this year.  We’ve talked about peacoats as a fashion essential, but when they are well made, affordable and fit well, peacoats turn from daily wear to “I am going to hook up with the hottest chick in the office” wear.

The images on the Banana Republic website don’t do it much justice; this particular coat would look good with something a little more formal underneath, like a tie, suit vest and matching pants.
