If you plan to frequently wear a sweater under the coat, I think the 38 would be the best bet. That is assuming a true 39" chest.
The Authentic is sized the same as the issue coats, but I'm not sure about the other models. If you could get a p2p on them, and then read the section on sizing at the end of my article at the link in my signature line below, you would have a good idea of the sizing of the other models.

You are, IMHO, a motherfucking champ.

Anyone have a peacoat they can sell? 32-34" chest.

Anyone have pictures of how the Sterlingwear Authentic looks with the collar all the way up? Not just popped. By being a convertible collar, does that mean that the neck buttons up to resemble something like a turtleneck?

does Sterlingwear make the "Spec" in any other color besides Navy?eh.gif

Wait, do they not offer their entire range of coats online? As far as I know the Authenic is Mil-spec. Is that what you are referring to?

Yes. That is what I mean. I'm not sure if the little clasp is necessary, but the neck should resemble that formation.

they don't have their "Spec" on their website for reasons I don't know of

the "Spec" is supposed to be the one most similar to the coats they make for sailors, Sterlingwear = trolls

Sterlingwear doesn't make any of its coats in Navy, as far as I know. I believe they are all made from the black melton wool. Their coats pre 1980 were all a dark midnight blue, but that ceased over 30 years ago. Civilian "peacoats" aren't my specialty, so I could be wrong.

Too bad it is too big as that is fine peacoat. Also rare and hard to find in good shape.

Huh, so is the spec the same cut as the authentic but with heavier wool? Say 32 oz?

I know its confusing as hell. I can barely make sense of the post below about the "Spec".

The Spec is no way a copy of the government-issue jacket, but is the genuine article made to the exact specifications of the current US Navy issue. Michele said it is available only through the factory and is, of course, more expensive. It differs from their closest variant, the Authentic, in that it is made with a more closely woven, 100% wool material (more wind resistant) dyed a deep navy -- almost black -- and is put together with heavier stitching. There may be other details, can't remember. I'm ordering one in 42 long. I normally wear a 40 long, but Michele's recommending you go up a size or two. I'm only going up one size as I'd like a more fitted look. Price is $250. If this coat gets close to the WWII-era peacoat I had when I was a kid in the Eighties, I'll be very happy. Those babies were in a class of their own.

TyCooN: Where did you find that post by cimabue that you quoted--what page or date? I would like to follow up on it as it sounds like the peacoat a friend of mine has been looking for.

How's the fit on this coat? Do the shoulders look a tad too wide? I was thinking of taking the shoulders in a little at the shoulder seam, so the sleeves would be brought up a bit as well because the sleeves are about half an inch too long. Would this be possible on a coat like this?

Huh. I'm interested in pics and a review if there is one around. I think I'll message that poster a bit later. Got to hang with the girlfriend.
