i recently picked up a schott navy peacoat at filene's basement for $100. i think they had some charcoals as well. i wear a 44L jacket but the large wasn't fitted enough for me so i tried on the medium. it was perfect; maybe a tad snug up top, but it had a nice fitted look around my midsection. i'd look into it if you have one in your area.
really interested in getting this but i'm not sure how slim-fit it is. obviously it won't be as slim as the purple label version but as long as it's on the slim side it will do. anybody familiar with it or tried it on?
