It looks fine if you like them tight and you're not planning to wear anything chunky underneath.

^you think it looks pretty tight? I was thinking of getting it tailored at least in the arm area

It looks super tight man.

Pretty much what I was thinking. It wasn't until I looked in the mirror and saw that there was no vents that made me think twice about getting it. I actually already own a peacoat, which I bought at a thrift store, and that has a vent. But I was thinking of replacing it. I also unbutton the bottom button when I sit down.

Your peacoat looks fine as it. Do not tailor it. You need to put a sweater under there.

Possibly too tight. Did you put any clothes underneath it yet?

How is the J. Crew Bayswater peacoat? Is it warm enough for very cold (Scandinavian) winters?

Is it slim?

post #4300 of 5821

I have the Bayswater and it is definitely warm. The cut is slimmer than most of the peacoats out there. If you want to really be warm, get the Thinsulate version. It's a bit more expensive, but keeps you much warmer.

post #4301 of 5821
Yeah, I also have the Bayswater and its definetely warm!

Is it worth the retail price? And how is the quality of the wool?

The fleece in the A-2 gives the insulation and the knits at the cuffs and the waist eliminate the airflow. That's why it is so warm. A peacoat is drafty unless the space between the body and the liner of the coat is filled in with a sweater, or other insulation.

For Scandinavian winters, I think you need something more than a peacoat! Of course, if it ever warms up to -4 C (25 F), you should be OK.

Sorry if this is a double post, but my initial post was submitted for mod verification and it seems that it never got through (?)

Is this be a good fit?
