zazaza, thanks for the info on the ducktailing! Seems like MrNick's side view photo also shows this problem. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue and it seems to be a common thing so I guess I will live with it.

Does anyone know whether sterlingwear cuts their coats particularly different for children or women than they do for men? I'm 5'3", 125lb, 36 chest, 28" waist, and really short arms. I'd probably have to shorten the sleeves on a men's 34S, but might be able to wear a women's 10 or boy's large without alterations.

based on what i've read online and what i experienced firsthand, yes, it seems to be common.
not sure if it can be remedied by changing where the tack is placed, ordering a different length, etc
but its something to be considered

I still don't understand how you are the same chest size as me but need a 34. I can change a light bulb in my 30 and I'm a 35" chest. Measured with my arms spread out horizontally with the tape over the widest part of my chest, right under the armpit.

Just to shed some light, The Spiewak McKenzie is great for the slim guy, I mean really slim, because if you have any shoulder or pecks than you're going to be feeling some tightness in the top block. I swapped out for a standard Schott 740N and while it's not the slimmest, it gives me much more free range of motion with the option of layering my suit jacket underneath for the East Coast i'm moving to. Different strokes for different folks I suppose

That's strange. Can you post a picture of your fit? EDIT: Nevermind, I saw the pictures a few pages back.

Yes, but you look retarded.

I used to have that same mindset when I first started going on SF. I would buy all the clothes and pants that fit on me the tightest.

i'm a big guy but i have a 12in drop so i'm not sure whats going on with their vent. michelle did concede that the vented coats "tend to do that".

A flare in the rear vent is one the steeziest things about a peacoat, IMO, it matches a popped pea collar nicely and the skirt area should have a nice subtle flare as well. You guys need to get your swag game up (and stop worrying so much about sizing, fit, and every last detail)

Been wearing mine for three years now, love it







This is pretty good, overall. Aesthetically pleasing, and the unbuttoned fit doesn't wallow. I know that most people with common sense will button at least the top two or bottom two buttons when wearing it, but the unbuttoned fit is a good indicator of how delicate the shape is when buttoned... and this coat is definitely more shaped than a typical peacoat.
Not fond of the textured material (lots of cheap winter coats here come in that roped wool and it just looks cheap to me - it is), don't like the gun flap, and I think the sides are a bit suppressed (though they do match the very slim arms) but this is a good slim peacoat that's not a Sterlingwear (which you guys are trying to make a skinny peacoat, when it is not, really...

i hear you, and i've seen people that can pull it off. however, in my case the duck tail just looked like the coat was too small, even when the top was a size too big.

Here are some pictures with a sweater underneath. Does the coat look too long?

I cannot imagine fitting into a 30R with a 35" chest.

Can anyone comment on the sleeves if there sizing chart is true. As I have an H&M pea coat size small and the sleeves meassure 18in from the inseam and is about an inch too long for me. So according to sterlingwear a short has a 17in sleeve inseam. Can anyone comfirm this as I've read over 100 pages of this thread and some people say yes and some people say no. Just get a general idea I'm 5'10/5'11 150lbs 37in cheat other peacoat measures 18in inseam on the sleeve and it's too long. So I should order a short with the 17in? 34 or 36 and short or regular?
post #1785 of 5861
You don't measure sleeves from the inseam. What the fuck is it that makes people think this is a good idea?
