are there any peacoats that fit more modern (slim in the body and with trim sleeves) and cost nomore than 200-300$?
oh and it needs to have the actual military peacoat characteristics (naval buttons, side pockets, nothing fancy)
any opinions on the Schott peacoat 740N or its slim-fit model? I tried on a denim&supply pcoat which fit really well also...
i see most shops advising to size down a whole size from your actual shoe size (same as your UK size).
for example i'm a size 8.5US, i wear size 8 in Alden barrie but will probably need size 7.5 in Viberg
i could size down more even in my semi dress; i wear size 8D in Barrie/Trubalanc e but 8C in semi dress.
Nevertheless I own a pair of Indy's in size 8C as well which i can wear although they are a bit tight
"A commando sole would be a deal breaker unless it was a mini lug recessed and hidden from side view"
This! Especially the commando heel will not work with this kind of boot so it will need to be another kind of rubber heel or the exact make as pictures, that would work for me too
wanted to show some excellent craftmanship from 'the Shoehealer' who repaired my Indy's in less than a week. Neoprene sole changed for a single leather midsole and dainite outersole
