In my opinion, based on reviews of the Schott and the Sterlingwear, the latter is of higher quality. I have had a couple of the Sterlingwear current issue peacoats, and they are warm and of high quality. Sterlingwear sells these to the public under the name of Mil-Spec peacoats. One must call the company and place the order that way.For sizing info, read the guide linked to in my signature line below. The fitting section is near the end.And, welcome to the forum. PC.
