How to tell if pea coat is for male or female if tag don't say
I think by the way you button it. Just like men's shirts are buttoned from the left, and women's shirts, the buttons on the right. My Pea coat has its buttons (that you actually button), are on the right.
Depends on which side the buttons are for males the buttons are on the right side and the button holes are on the left, For ladies it is the opposite.
The shape and the cut. If it's boxy, it's probably for males, although a woman could wear it too, if she wants.
for men the buttons are on the right. for women the buttons are on the left.
