Hailing from deep in Alabama, not your typical fashion powerhouse location, award-winning designer Billy Reid built a business around what guys actually want to wear, and it worked. Awarded in 2010 as GQ's Best New Menswear Designer, and again in 2012 as the CFDA's Menswear Designer of the Year (considered the equivalent of the Oscar's of fashion), Billy Reid & team continue to turn out classic pieces that are equal parts refinement and lived-in luxury with a hint of old Southern charm.
Perhaps the most iconic piece of clothing worn by James Bond in Skyfall, the traditional peacoat from then under-the-radar Alabama-based Billy Reid developed a story and cult status of its own. After learning Daniel Craig had purchased the same coat for himself prior to filming Skyfall, a small, in-house team at Billy Reid began an effort to have the coat placed organically in the upcoming Bond film. Successful in that mission, the peacoat went viral in the 007 community, selling out countless times, backordered for over 2 years, before finally being placed in the brand's core collection. Now available again in the same heavy 80% wool / 20% nylon blend as used in the film, it's not quite bulletproof, but you might feel that way slipping it on. Ideal for clandestine missions and polar vortexes alike.
