It depends on where they are located and how large they are. Ideally, even a WWII peacoat wouldn't have moth damage. A small spot or two that is in an out of the way location, and that doesn't go through the fabric, shouldn't present much of a problem.

Hi, new to this forum, live in Australia, Adelaide actually and finding it really tough to find a good peacoat. obivously buying one from overseas (us, uk) is an option buy wondering if anyone has had any luck over here. it is getting pretty cold and i think they look good to wear outside. have attached one i found (not sure if its a peacoat exactly). its rodney and gunn. looks good and love the pockets/collar etc but looks a bit short. what does everyone think? thanks.

It's not really a peacoat, so it can be any length you want it to be. There are a whole bunch of peacoat inspired civilian fashion garments out there that try and change things up a bit. Sometimes they work, most of the time they don't.

Welcome to the Forum, BTW.

Has anyone started storing up their peacoats yet?
Peacoat which post was the one with your written instructions on this?

So in my understanding, the Sterlingwear and Schott peacoats in the navy color actually look more black than blue, correct? I ask because I'm interested in a peacoat for winter but I would really prefer blue over black.

Yet? I stored that shit months ago!

When I say stored I put it on a hanger in the closet and called it a day

If you only have one or two pea coats, just put them in a plastic garment bag, or get a plastic bag from the laundry and tie it off at the bottom. You might also want to put a mothball or cedar block in the bag with the coat. Some people don't like moth balls because they perceive them to be carcinogenic. And they might be, I don't know. But that is why I suggest a cedar block. This method will work well if one has just a few pea coats.

Before putting them in the bag, give the coats a good brushing to remove any matter the moths might find tasty. With that you should be good to go until next year, with protection from the moths.

They not only look more black than blue, but are, in fact, solid black. At least the issue models since 1980 have been black. As far as I know, the only dark midnight blue pea coats are the issue coats before 1980. I imagine there is the speciality manufacturer out there, such as Buzz Rickson, that might make a midnight blue peacoat. Or some of the other civilian makers might make a blue one. I just haven't looked into it. Some do have various colors available.

So, if you are looking for the dark blue peacoat, your best bet will be the vintage models. See the link in my signature line for an article I wrote about these pea coats.

Would you suggest a dry cleaning before I close it up?
Anyone still wear peacoats in the summer in NorCal? Maybe SF?
post #4167 of 5748
If I remember correctly, you had it cleaned when you first got it about 6 months ago. I think a good brushing would be sufficient this year.

No I personally didn't do it. Maybe the previous owner did, but I doubt that too.
I have been brushing it almost every day since tho. At least 3-5 times a week if not everyday.

Probably a good idea to have it cleaned, then. Will only cost about $15 and will make the shell look like new. Plus, it will get rid of any eggs in the fabric.

I normally have mine cleaned when I first get them. Keeps the moths from entering my closets.
