BadgerBush: Use Peacoat's sizing guide for a good fit. The Mil Specs are a bit on the large size, so you ought to try and get a pit to pit measurement from Sterlingwear. If you want a trim fit, you probably should go down one size from your measured chest size, using the pit to pit on the coat as a guide, of course.

wow, tried this on and it fits like it should.. REALLY slim arm holes...... I'm a 38-40 and the Small was just a little too snug, and the M was maybe a tiny bit too big. I need to lose some pounds and the small would be perfect.

The only thing I didn't like was that it was just a little too short. Too cropped of a peacoat, imo. It was $128 at the store and 30% off today. The quality looked pretty nice - at least as good as H&M's I'm sure.. Not THAT huge of a difference between the quality of this and the Jcrew one.

I tried on the Bayswater again (I've owned it before), and while it was pretty nice--the armholes and sleeves are pretty big.

I plan to go to check out the coats in store tomorrow. I've never had a peacoat before, so I'm thinking one of the two from Gap might be a good start if the quality is ok.

 

The cropped navy peacoat is in stores though? It's labelled as a gap.com exclusive. The same for the Bayswater, I thought it was a online only thing? Which stores did you go to?

I am seriously thinking about pulling the trigger on a Billy Reid peacoat. Assuming that the sizing is similar on the BR smalls - may I ask what your measurements are for a good fit with the small? I'm 5'10", 155lbs average/slim build. The Bond peacoat has a 39" chest listed so I'm a bit worried it'll run large on me, but then it does say trim fitting and I don't trust manufacturers specifications! I tend to be a snug 36R or a small 38R in suits, probably favour 36R more often.

 

(Taken from a suit jacket laying flat)

Chest – 19.5”

Waist – 18.2”

Shoulder – 17.9” (a touch larger than I need but likely good for an overcoat)

Length – (Bottom of collar seam downward) – 29.5”

Sleeve – (From middle of collar) – 32.8”

Sleeve – (From top of sleeve) – 24”

 

I'd really appreciate thoughts on this. BR measurements are listed as length - 29.25, chest 39", waist 37.5", shoulder 18", sleeve 34.5". If this would be a sucky fit, ideas for a good peacoat that'd suit me better sizing wise would be really appreciated.

What would people call a single breasted peacoat? I'm essentially looking for something of a peacoat style but fitted and as I say, preferably single breasted.

A single breasted peacoat.

It should be about 19.25" but it is best to contact Sterlingwear to find the most current sizing. I have found that the Authentic series is fitted the closest to the current issue sizing. Sizes have gotten larger over the years, so best to check before you buy.

Also, the smaller sizes--34 and 36--don't fit the same sizing pattern as size 38 and above. Their p2p measurements are generally a bit larger.

Great answer! But experience tells us that all pea coats are double breasted; therefore, a single breasted coat can't be a peacoat. It is a single breasted fashion garment. They should be easy to find. I have seen a bunch of them.

You need to read my comments on peacoat sizing and how to obtain a good peacoat fit. They are contained throughout this thread and in an article I wrote, which is linked in my signature line below. I think I gave a fairly comprehensive guide a few pages back. The key is to remove as many variables as possible and rely only on objective information.

You should start by measuring the circumference of your chest and then obtaining the pit to pit measurement of the peacoat you are thinking of buying. That gives you two objective measurements--assuming both are accurate--and eliminates relying on comments such as snug, loose, suit size, jacket size or the stated tag size of the garment. Manufactures use their own method of determining garment size, and it can vary by two inches or more. That can be the difference between a good fit and a loose fit, or no fit at all.

I would have thought so to, until I checked google.







Obviously these aren't peacoats, but that's what came up when I typed "single breasted peacoat". So I thought maybe it was a thing.

Yes, those are definitely peacoat inspired single breasted fashion garments.
post #4378 of 5753

ha, yeah single breasted peacoat inspired is what I am after, to be honest, exactly like that last pic although minus the ridiculous zips...

Just wondered if they had a specific name obviously not.

cheers

If you do a search for single breasted pea coats, you ought to find what you are looking for. They are on eBay and elsewhere.

What kind of shoes look best with pea coats?

 

I currently have chelsea boots and chukka boots in suede, and I think I will buy a pair of wingtips boots.
