I am looking to pickup the RRL peacoat, but not on sale online
Located in Los Angeles Area
I'm not sure about the current season stuff, but there have been at least two different pea coats.( I didn't see a pea coat on the pre-sale web site though.)
There's one that's made in Italy and another that's made in China. The Italy one retails for about $1000 and the made in China one is a couple hundred less.
I got the Italy one and it's pretty damn heavy. I'm not sure where you'd wear it in LA since it's too heavy for a lot of Seattle weather.

I got the Lindrick boots. I don't think it's quite as oversized as a Barrie. It's more like 1/4 or 1/3 of a size big as opposed to the Barrie which is 1/2 size big. YMMV depending on your foot. Pretty sure they're 325 last and they fit the same as the Darlton/Marlow wing tips. I ended up sizing down to same as Barrie size.
If you can get them for the 40%+15% they're well worth it. They're finished a lot nicer than the Alden equivalents like the Epaulet Brixton or those J Crew wing tip boot (not that I don't like my Aldens) and end up being cheaper.
Only thing is they seem to have the problem common to C&J shell in that I got those water spots. I just about wore out my arm brushing those mofos to get rid of the spots. The Lindricks in particular seemed to have been loaded up with polish which I think is the problem. And even once you get rid of the spots they'll come back but eventually with enough brushing they go away for good.
