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.
you are talking about 38-40 inch chest, or 38-40 Suit Size?

I saw that, thanks for posting. How does the measurements of the coat compare with with BR post on their website? Does the pit to pit measurement give you a good indication of their chest measurement? I'm not sure the step down in sizing from medium (which fits you at 42R suit size right?) to small will fit me at a 36-38R (suit size).

Preordering the small as a size 36-38... flying blind on the sizing a little bit but it was your video that convinced me to pull the trigger! Ok scratch that, WTF. $250 tax added to the thing because of shipping to the UK, that's ridiculous. Nice jacket but not worth $1k!

I’ve been reading through these posts and I’m bit of a time crunch and looking to order a coat I have my eyes on. What is mostly placing a questions mark in my mind is the extra space needed in the coat around the chest area. I measured my pit to pit its 18.5 inches and measuring all the way around its about 37.5 inches. I do not necessarily want to layer heavily but maybe thinner type sweater or shirt will suffice for me. What size pit to pit of chest should I buy and how much space should you have between your pit on the coat? 

 

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR ANY ANSWERS!

Maybe you have another coat/ jacket that fits the way you want this one to fit. Measure that? You probably will have a hard time finding the perfect fit without actually trying the coat on. If the P-P measurement of the coat is close to what you think you need, give it a try.

Drilzzz: Never measure your own chest from p2p. That is only done on the pea coats as it is more accurate to use the p2p on the coat and the entire circumference of your chest on yourself. As you have the ability to measure the circumference of your own chest, then that is the measurement you start out with. For a trim fit, assuming your chest measures exactly 37.5", you will need peacoat that measures about 19.25" to 19.75". As you are a "tweener" in chest size, it is more difficult to get a good estimate of the correct size you need.

Thanks for the help Nopike343. I have several coats and the p2p is different in every single one lol. I have a Levi’s Trucker jackets thats 19 p2p and it fits tight and then I have a vintage lumberjack jacket thats 21 across the pit and it fits nice for that jacket. I just don’t know how to go about finding the right size for the peacoat.

I’ve read so many posts both on the fedora and this site and the information that I have gathered from your posts this far are greatly appreciated sir. I read your articles and also read the sizing but I am still a bit perplexed about it all. Im afraid to get a p2p 20” and it be too loose and then get a 19” which would be too tight.

The coat in question: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221144042122

 

My shoulder is 18” and my sleeve length is 24 to the wrist so it all seems good but then the 19” p2p puts me at wits. The shipping is from cananda and the seller says no refunds for ill fitting item ;(

I can get this pea coat by Marc Jacobs for half off:

Is it worth it? What do people think?

I know this question is highly frowned upon, but how is washing a vintage peacoat by yourself? I'm contemplating purchasing a vintage peacoat, but I don't care for the smell of dry cleaning. Would filling a bath with cold water and some wool-friendly detergent (like woolite), swirling the jacket gently in the bath, rinsing it through with some clean water and dry it lying down work? Or would this just make a mess of the jacket?

It may well shrink it. Don't do it. Might work well for you, then again it may not. The dry cleaning odor is usual gone in a few days, especially if left outside to air out. Costs about $15, and it is money well spent.
