A casual buy no. 24


A lightweight rain mac from Penfield. I really like this brand, from its truly iconic Sanford bobble hat, to the 60/40 Vassan parka. A US brand established in Massachusetts in 1975, Penfield is popular with all sorts of people – outdoors types, preppy students, and of course match-going lads. An everyman label.

Lightweight nylon with an inner mesh lining, this coat is light enough for warm and wet Autumn weather, and looks great worn unzipped over a smart button down check shirt, an instantly classic look.

    excellent choice, had one similar meself – used it for years. wasn’t considered casual though – but like you said, an everyman’s coat.

    Hi Jon,

    ‘Casual’ is for me only a poor label to describe a state of being, or a certain outlook on life. Ian Hough describes it best as “The nameless thing”. Most early ‘casual’ brands are definitely off-limits to many who associate with the word nowadays.

    Individuality, more than one-upmanship, is my own personal take on being a dresser
