Gimmie That Vegan Peacoat!

It’s getting really cold here in D.C.! And with the cold comes office chatter about nonwool peacoats. I don’t know about the rest of the country, but three-fourths of the people I passed on my way to work today had peacoats on. So it seems that if you live in D.C. and don’t own a peacoat, well, you obviously don’t really live in D.C. Plus, let’s face it—they are just so darn stylish!

So, if you’re like me and shun wool but are still craving the posh look of the peacoat, have no fear! There are plenty of options out there for us caring consumers that are a lot more friendly on your wallet and animals than their wool counterparts.

If you’re looking for your classic black peacoat, Pangea has both men’s and women’s styles in Polartec. For something with a little more of a tailored look, check out this sweet little number at Zappos. Tilly’s carries quite a few cute vegan coats, so you can rock the plaid or, if you’re not quite a peacoat person but more of a trench coat person, have no fear, they’ve got that covered too.

If you’re in the mood for something a little more … nontraditional … check out the vast selection at My favorite is this green piece. So this season, wear a coat that’s not made out of wool, and show everyone that compassion really is beautiful.

    Hey Chris, we’ll try to get an article about men’s vegan coats this season. Let us know if you find any good styles or deals!

  • Chris says:

    I also need a vegan men’s pea coat! The men’s pea coat at Pangea/Vegan Store sucks and is extremely overpriced. Help

  • Nicole DeJoseph says:

    @ Sam Gorst:

    Hey Sam. In the article above there is a link to a man’s peacoat as well:,-unisex-black/Page_1/346-BLK.html

    hope that is helpful.

    Also – a lot of folks seem to think this article is a contest, it is not. This is just a review of peacoats. 🙂

  • JIll Boggs says:

    Wow, this is just want I’ve been looking for. This would be terrific for me and my 2 daughters to share. It would be a great advertisment for veganism!

  • Sam Gorst says:

  • Grace I. says:

    I always wanted a cot like this. Never bought one. Animal friendly makes it perfect.

  • Carla says:

    I would love to have that peacoat! I have vowed to never buy any gear that is not animal friendly…

  • Mary Jane Pike says:

    Thank God, finally a coat that isn’t filled with death.

  • Kathleen says:

    I found a Marc New York Coat at Nordstroms – 1/2 off. 100% man-made materials. Let me tell you, it was tough digging through all the wool and down to find this great warm coat.

  • Abby says:

    sooooo cute!

  • Nathalie says:

    Hi there!

    I am very happy to know that these coats are available now! The thing is I live in Montreal and I can’ t seem to find any.. 🙁

    If anyone can guide me to a place where they have them I would really appreciate it!

    Thank you again PETA for everything you have done and still doing for our wonderful friends, our earthlings!

    God bless!

    I’m a vegetarian and try to make the most conscious decisions possible in every aspect of my life. What I’m wondering is why people are calling Polartec fleece eco-friendly. Unless it’s made from recycled plastic, non-recycled Polar Fleece is made from non-renewable petroleum derivatives. I understand the desire to be animal-friendly, but let’s not tout something as being earth-friendly when it’s not.

  • Lisa says:

    It’s so hard to find good quality, affordable vegan clothing. This coat looks wonderful! I haven’t worn wool for a few years now, but still have the old coats around…it would be a nice change!

  • Satine13 says:

    It looks wonderful, and long enough to keep the backside from freezing while sitting on the bench waiting for my carpool or the metal bus stop benches!!

  • Samantha says:

    I live in WI and am a vegan and NEED a stylish, warm winter coat! I would LOVE to have this coat 🙂 WI winters … vegan, nuff said!!

  • Maria Riedyk says:

    Great news that we are getting more eco-friendly, animal free clothes to wear. We have come a long way from the leather loin cloth!

  • Ellen Starr says:

    I’ve had one peacoat and wore it for yrs and would like to have another one.

  • Ellen Starr says:

    Everyone could use a peacoat and i would love to have this one.

  • Lori says:

    What a terrific looking coat! I just bet that the lucky winner wearing that would get many admirers.

  • Valentine Fernandez says:

    I just want to know where I can buy one!!! It is so beawesome!!!!

  • Marjorie Mcentee says:

    Not liking the truth

  • Marjorie Mcentee says:

    Nobody loves animals more than I do..I don’t understand how using wool, harms animals?????

  • Jen Block says:

    I want 1 pick me pick me!!!!

  • Leanne Hilgart says:

    I just left a note here before- not sure why it wasn’t approved?

    I’m a girl who spent a year trying to solve this question of the warm & stylish vegan pea coat, and they’re super warm as well as eco and made in Chicago on a living wage.

    My indie label is Peta2 has us up for a Libby Award, you should check it out.


  • Polly says:

    I ordered the vegan pea coat from Alternative Outfitters and I’m so disappointed — it’s thin as paper and there’s no way it’ll keep me warm. (It’s more like a light pea “jacket.”) I have been a vegan for two years but I continue to wear an old down coat out of necessity because I cannot, for the life of me, find a warm vegan coat. I’ll keep looking.

  • Lyly says:

    O my goodness, that is such a pretty coat, and animal friendly, it can’t get any better!

  • Destiny says:

    I need a new enviormental friendly coat. The one i have now is ripping at the seems, and this coat is so lovely and all my friends will be jealous to see me in it! Plus its a gorgeous coat!

  • Jennifer Jenkins says:

    It looks so warm and comfortable!!

  • Kim says:

    Does anyone know of a coat that comes in size Tall? I keep wearing my wool one that I bought many years ago, but should it give out, I’m going to have a really hard time finding one not made of animal products. I am a VERY tall woman, and there is no way that I can wear a regular length coat – they pull at the underarms to the point that it hurts. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

  • Nancy says:

    Thank you! I’ve been trying for months to find a nice, winter coat that didn’t use animal products!
