"Ahoi matey!" is most likely one of the most common phrases shouted by the original pea-coat wearing, seafaring men. I'd like to think they look something akin to Popeye, are devout spinach consumers and enjoy the occasional puff on their trusty pipes.

The blue pea coat was and still is the outdoor clothing worn by navy sailors, and although I love spinach, I don't think I'd fare very well on the seven seas - I'm not really the manual labour type. I would like to think I'm pulling off this classic piece by Aspesi quite well in an undeniably classic way with, of course, a strong Sophia-specific dose of modern quirkyness (queue the face shoes and giant candy bag). Yes, I went to the hairdresser this weekend and it took an hour to force my mane to submit to such sleekness.
