The wind chill is 21 degrees but the vintage peacoat is doing it's job. (1949, kersey wool) This is what it looks like all buttoned up and the collar popped. I'm wearing a thin base layer underneath.

Could someone help me figure out what size I should get, and which pea coat? I don't have a specific budget, but the vintage military jackets seem to be the best bargain, especially the WWII models. I'm 5'8", 130 lbs, my chest measures 35", and my waist measures 31.5". I'm hoping for a pretty slim fit, that will keep me warm, but will be able to fit a thin sweater underneath if I need to. I'm thinking that I would be around a size 34, but I'm not sure.
Also, does anyone have experience with MTM pea coats? Either Sterlingwear, Indochino, or Temple of Jawnz? Which would have the best quality, and are they worth the price?
