I'm thinking about the exact same coats and need help deciding too icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. I'm 6'1 and 185 though. I was also looking at the Schott 740C. I'm looking for a fitted fit but not too tight. I had a Spiewak peacoat and though the quality was decent the fit sucked for me. The medium was too short and the large was too big in the body. Having gorilla arms sucks sometimes.

Thank you for the advice! How do I know if I get that midnight blue color? It's hard to tell sometimes on my computer. Another thing, if I'm a 39" inch chest would I downsize to a size 38? Thanks again

Looking for something similar to this:

Any ideas?

Any opinons on the Tommy Hilfiger pea coat? I live in a corner of the world with fewer options than most, and would like to try before I buy. Schott, Sterlingwear and vintage is out, but Hilfiger I can find ...

I just picked up the Lands' End Pea Coat. Pretty pleased with it -- got it for $125 on sale. Fit is slim enough when you size down and the construction quality isn't bad for the price.

Here's my fit pic. I'm 190 lbs, 6'2", 33" waist and got a Medium Tall in this coat:

I like the lower slant pockets. I have no other comment.

Opinions on the fit? It's the J.Crew Bayswater in XS with a t-shirt under .. Should I shorten it a bit? Keep or sell?

 

As for the Hello Kitty on the shelf, I shot these in my lil' sis room.

Looks good to me.

I'm 5'9" 157 with a 38.5" chest and a 30" waist.

 

This is the J. Crew Bayswater Peacoat. The first set of pics is the size XS. The sleeves and length are perfect imo. The problem is it's a little tight around the shoulders and chest. I'm thinking about getting the buttons moved over an inch to give a bit of space for me so I don't feel as constricted. Is this okay to do?

 

The second set of pics is the size S. The sleeves are too long and perhaps too wide? I'll definitely need to have the sleeves shortened. I also feel that body is not only boxy, but a bit too long. Am I wrong about this? The shoulders feel way better though. With the XS, I do feel a bit constricted but with the S, I feel like I can move around. How tight is a peacoat supposed to feel anyways?

 

I am wearing a button up and a sweater underneath both coats. Which coat would you take if you were me?

 

Thanks to all.

Also looks good to me. I don't think you need to shorten it, although you could knock off a half inch and length to give it more of an edge. The arms seem a little wide to me, that's the only thing I don't like. Very classic.

Anyone in Toronto know of any stores besides the Bay that sell London Fog peacoats? They were selling some recently, but it seems as if my size is sold out in every location I've checked. I was hoping to wait to buy it, but since the selection was so small, it looks like people snatched them up.

Anyone try this Banana Republic Peacoat?



It's only $200 and they're constantly having 25-35% off sales. Is it a good cheap buy?

Why is it twisted so much to the right (your right)? Did you button it up correctly?

5-9 and 160 should not be wearing XS. Neither of those look good on you.

A peacoat should be long enough to cover the butt, and not much longer. The sleeve length should be at least one inch below the wrist joint. But this depends on personal preference. The coat should not be so tight that you notice the tightness in the chest or the shoulders; It should be comfortable to wear without noticing the fit..
