My friends, just as “James Bond will return,” so too, will the much-loved Billy Reid Bond Peacoat. The now-iconic style (named for Reid’s Bond Street store in NYC and worn by 007 himself in Skyfall) is back in stock for 2022 and features some seriously cool new details, to boot. Of note, the famed Billy Reid Bond Peacoat is now, well, the Billy Reid Waxed Bond Peacoat. That’s right: Where the much-loved and fast-selling Bond Peacoat was once made of heavy, warm Melton wool — like classic peacoats from days gone by — the new iteration of the style features weather-resistant Scottish waxed cotton from legendary mill Halley Stevensons.
It’s a major step up that turns the Billy Reid Bond Peacoat into a jacket you can reliably wear in fall and winter — and spring, for that matter — with the specs and high-quality design to match. Making some of the best jackets for men is just one specialty of Mr. Reid, based in Alabama and a favorite of the blog for making seasonal staples like one of the best men’s henleys, too.
The soon-to-be-legendary (IMHO!) Billy Reid Waxed Bond Peacoat ups the ante in a major way. The original version of the Bond Peacoat already featured luxe details like a back-collar leather lining and genuine horn buttons and the Billy Reid Waxed Bond Peacoat also features standout details. In this case, that means your new favorite peacoat also features a warm quilted lining with an engineered stripe as an added style detail.
For good measure, the impressive Billy Reid Waxed Bond Peacoat even features leather tabs at the waist pockets, plus those same durable horn buttons. This jacket is both rugged and yet luxe and sleek, the sort of coat you can wear on blustery fall and winter days aplenty without missing a beat — while drawing compliments all the while, I’d bet. Of course, the Billy Reid Waxed Bond Peacoat is an investment at just under $700, but it’s an impressive jacket you’ll have for years to come — Bond himself approves.
