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.

Ideal for clandestine missions and polar vortexes alike.
