They have nice selection and most are in excellent condition but their return policy sucks ass. I didn't know about that site until Peacoat posted it here and I was going to buy one from them but waited too long and my top 5 choices were all gone by then. Also, if you put in the code LOVE you will receive a 10% discount. Also, don't purchase a pea coat base on your suit size. Measure your chest without a shirt to get your true measurement.

I doubt a 38 will be too tight. My chest is 37 and the size 38 I bought would fit another three inches in there.

VintageTrends is great. Shipping was fast. I bought the size 38 from them but it was too big so I ordered a size 36 instead of returning it and waiting for an exchange. You could always take it off my hands for a bit cheaper than from them.

I'd imagine a size 38 would fit you either way though.

Narrow shoulders. I have a 39 inch chest but wear a 36R suit.

I just ordered a 38R from vintage trends. Hoping to have it by the end of the week.

They had a sale for 60% off that peacoat? Where can I still get it for that price?

May be somebody can answer a few questions:
1. Would thIs be 100% wool or some sort nylon/wool fabric?
2. If wool would it be a tight weave, would it stop some wind and rain? 24 vs 32 oz?
3. I'm 40R (5'10" 155# athletic build w 32-31 waist) for reg jackets, should I stay true to size since it's vintage or go down to a 38R for a snug fit (not constricting though)?

Thanks in advance!!

Bombers is right.

1. This is the good Kersey 100% wool.

2. Yes, a tight weave and will stop the wind. It will stop the rain, for a while as the weave is tight.

3. You must measure your actual chest size. If you measure 40" in the chest, then either a 40 or a 38, depending on how fitted you want the jacket. The 40 might be just a bit big for you. If you are a 39" in the chest, the 38 will be your best bet.

^ That's the point, though. E-mails can be *too* detailed.

can post pics at the weekend, I'm afraid not earlier...

chest is actually more 40.8 than 41 but who would post <0.5 inch measurements?
post #2802 of 5778
How difficult would it be to make alterations (raising armholes, slimming chest) in a vintage peacoat that feels like its 30 oz melton wool? I have my grandfather's peacoat from WWII when he was in the Navy and it fits me fine, but just a rather boxy and conservative fit. I'd like to modernize it somewhat.
post #2803 of 5778
^ Very nice! I would suggest not altering it.
post #2804 of 5778
Doubt I would wear it otherwise. I've had it for years--but the sleeves and body are too boxy for my tastes. Maybe I'll post a pic in this thread.
