Pulled the trigger on a sterlingwear 44r yesterday from eBay. That's all I know about it. It's NWOT and was $75 so I figured even not knowing if it was the navigator or authentic it would be worth it. Hoping I didn't need a 42. Guess I'll find out.
Hey guys, looking at getting my first peacoat here in a couple weeks. I'm leaning towards the j crew bayswater even though I know the majority concensus is vintage is better.
My question is sizing. Not sure If I should get a large or Xl. I'm a 44r in blazers generally. About 6' 225lbs, so I'm bigger than most of the people in here. I thought large would be good, but I went to the local j crew and tried on the only wool coat they had which was some Wallace and Barnes one...
Don't know if anyone knows about the unbranded Instagram but they posted about a collab with pronto for denim carnival. I did a little research and they are brown weft 18oz selvage. Anyone know anything about them?
Edit: they also apparently have a denim jacket? Never seen anything about that except on their IG. any info would be appreciated
The waist will stretch. Just wear them. Only one that you shouldn't size down on is the skinny fit. The pockets will also stretch (mine did anyways) but I just got to a point where I can use them comfortably and I've worn them since January, but not a lot because I can't wear them to work.
I've read most of this thread and haven't seen much mention about this. My 221s seem to have fixed my issue with the pockets. The depth wasn't so much a problem to me, it was more that I couldn't get my hand in the pockets at all on my 201s. But my 221s pockets are very easy to get in even though I've only worn them one day. Also they're a lot looser even though they're the same size. Maybe this shipment has different measurements/some changes?
Saw a post a couple pages back about cutting the belt loop thread to open the front pockets a little more. I am so sick of not being able to use the pockets I was going to buy some Norman porters or tellason in the next few weeks anyways so I gave it a try. It doesn't do anything except take the belt loops off.
