I am down to 15 or 20 peacoats. And yes, they are all vintage except one Sterlingwear civilian peacoat and maybe one or two current issue military Sterlingwear.

I havent got a parka though. I may consider getting one though. But ive got too many coats now though i think. A man only needs one coat, a pair of shoes and a bed the saying goes i think. A bed is the most important of those items. I...

However, with the insole, the fit feels much better...
Yes, the jumper will need to be wool. The thicker the better as it will take up more space. -5 C is good peacoat weather with the sweater. Although I'm not familiar with the Burton, I think you will find the vintage peacoats are more wind and water resistant than any other peacoat on the market. Also warmer if they are well fitted or worn with a sweater (in the UK, a jumper). I have spent many a cold night in NYC with a peacoat and a sweater and never got cold. Our...

Because there doesnt seem to be much in the way of lining. There is space between one's body and the liner of the coat. That's why I recommend wearing a sweater (jumper) under the...

Should I follow their size chart and get a size 40? Thanks! I believe most of the posters here have said to stay with one's own size or go down a size with the Sterlingwear. I haven't heard any say go up. I only have one civilian Sterlingwear, and it is...

Basically he ended up having to taking it in so much in that the arms would have to be taken off etc, making it cost much...
