Are there any other peacoats that fit like this one?

if it fits you that perfectly, it's well worth it with the 25% off and free shipping.

this is quite interesting... I was perusing through GAP.com for the first time in years and years and years. I haven't stepped into a GAP store in just as long. It seems like they've upped their quality/style closer to their brand Banana Republic--which isn't saying much anymore--but still. A lot of these styles look Jcrew-esque.. http://www.gap.com/browse/category.do?cid=87727

I've owned the Bayswater peacoat before and really liked it--but it just wasn't the perfect fit. I would prefer slimmer sleeves and smaller armholes--but it isn't bad. I would like a little more detail on a peacoat as well, although the simple styling of the Bayswater is much better than most that are overdone with flashy epaulets or gunflaps? or whatever. I would buy another one and be pretty happy with it, but I think it looks just a little too plain especially when fully buttoned up.

This, however, looks quite promising... just as sharp as the Bayswater without actually trying it on...... quite a bit cheaper, too. I've had the Thinsulate and it was too warm for me in this climate...
http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=87327&vid=1&pid=911828022 I like how it has the straps on the sleeves. What do you guys think? $138 and there's a 20% online coupon code today as well


As for this one--I like it except for the stripe and colors (Gap x GQ Ian Velardi Blanket Stripe Peacoat)


The Mac jacket looks pretty clean as well -

no one likes the Gap peacoat above? I didn't get to try it on today.

Here is the D&G peacoat I mentioned several days ago that I am selling. Will put on ebay in a week or so:

http://www.styleforum.net/t/322222/d-g-dolce-gabbana-wool-peacoat-size-50-40-with-tags-retail-1045 and my signature. I'll take measurements and post actual pics pretty soon.

Also looks like I posted the cropped version above. This is the classic fit which also looks promising http://www.gap.com/webcontent/0005/550/536/cn5550536.jpg

FYI - Just put a size small of Billy Reid's Officer Coat from last year up on buy and sell.
post #4355 of 5862

Speaking of Billy Reid, hows their quality of peacoats?

 

$700, made in Italy.

Pre-ordered that Billy Reid coat myself. Based on the pictures, it does look pretty great. Leather detailing, Made in Italy, great design. Not to mention it's 007s coat of choice.

However, until I get it, who knows. Main thing I'm worried about is sizing.

I tried on their peacoat from last year's autumn collection -- very nice. Well worth it, I think. Sadly, they didn't have a Small anymore, so I can't comment on the fit or sizing.

EDIT: Actually, the one I'm thinking of is infact the officer's coat that clemente21 is selling. AND in the size I wanted... lol.

So is the consensus among Mil-Spec (or Sterlingwear in general) fans that shelling out the extra dough for a bona-fide Mil-Spec is worthwhile? Better fit and better threads?

 

How would you rate Sterlingwear's return policy - not sure about how I'd fit in on of their peacoats and don't relish the prospect of shipping heavy peacoats back and forth.

so this is the billy reid one? looks a little on the looser side especially the arm holes/sleeves. what size is this and what are the measurements, if you don't mind?

I'd be interested in trading my D&G peacoat from last season 40R (50R) for a billy reid that fits me - 38ish in the chest. It's in my signature and retail was $1045.

No. It's gdl203 in his Buzz Rickson. They're pricey frown.gif but so nice.

New poster here. Does ANYONE know where I can find this Shipley & Halmos peacoat? Anywhere from eBay, to second hand stores that deal in designer labels, one of your friends, or a website somewhere It's from Fall 2011, and it's the "Winslow" model. I cannot find it anywhere. Really like it. Any help is greatly appreciated! I need a Large.

I only own one peacoat so I can't compare it to anything else. But my Mil-Spec Sterlingwear is holding up well after 3rd season. The fit is amazing and I believe if they have my size, anyone can find their size. The peacoat serves me well in NYC winters. I'm super skinny and always cold in the winter, but this peacoat does its job great and also performs well in rainy conditions. I think the downside to all peacoats is bulk/weight and limited pockets as compared to lighter sports jackets from NorthFace or alike.
