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.post #4159 of 60446/6/12 at 6:15am
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.post #4160 of 60446/6/12 at 5:40pmpost #4161 of 60446/12/12 at 11:39pmpost #4162 of 60446/12/12 at 11:57pmpost #4163 of 60446/13/12 at 8:41ampost #4164 of 60446/13/12 at 2:13pmQuote:
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.post #4165 of 60446/13/12 at 2:21pmQuote:
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.post #4166 of 60446/15/12 at 9:39ampost #4167 of 60446/15/12 at 3:15pmpost #4168 of 60446/15/12 at 3:27pmQuote:
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.post #4169 of 60446/15/12 at 4:36pm
