for schott you're going to have to size down quite a bit. i'm also about 38" chest; i tried a 34 and it was still too big, ended up getting a size small in their slim fit.

thankfully I didn't make any rational decision I was very close of ordering a Schott 38 this morning! I looked at their slim fit collection they don't have a classic navy blue so what would you recommend on this one ?

The reports I have had on the Spiewak haven't been good. Also look at the description: wool/polyester blend, which usually gives me pause, plus the % of each isn't specified. And look at the sizing: small, medium, etc., as well as the comment on sizing: "Considered a Regular fit; cut with a little extra room through the chest and body for comfort." Exactly what does that mean? Probably means, a boxy cut. Also, look a the photograph: another tent shaped peacoat.

If you do get this coat, be prepared to send it back for a smaller size. Probably not going to be able to slim it down enough to suit you, though.

Just received my vintage pea at home. Here is a picture of the label and judging by the peacoat dating article it appears to be the 1966 version. Unfortunately 2 buttons were broken this seems to have happened in transit, but should be able to buy replacements.

 

Just hoping it fits me now. Will get some fit pics once I am home.

if you want a sterlingwear peacoat, probably aim for size 34; 36 if your gonna be wearing a lot of layers or thick sweaters. but for your height and sleeve length, also probably get a long not regular

Before I make a move....is it possible to tailor material like this?  I routinely get shirts and pants adjusted and know a good tailor for my leather jackets...but can a normal tailor work with thick wool (or wool blends)?  I think I can live with the shoulders but maybe I can get the sleeves shortened (instead of tucking the excess) and maybe have the waist taken in a little?  Anyone try this?

 

Frank talk: I think you need to return the coat ASAP. It might be worth it if you had gotten an amazing deal on a quality piece of clothing, but Jos A Bank? There's a good chance it is wool blend, and construction is probably crap (clearly the fit is). Don't sink a bunch of tailoring money into something that won't last more than two years, and won't look good ever. With J Crew peacoats going for $150 (and less) and quality vintage peacoats available with a little work, why even consider keeping this one?

Almost $500 for a 50% wool, 40% Polyester, 10% other coat? No thanks. You can get 100% wool (or close to it) from designer brands for that price.

Yes, it is a 1966 model. Those buttons are readily available on eBay. If your chest measures 36" to 38" it ought to be a good fit. Most of those size 34s have a p2p of 19", which is wider than would be expected, so they fit a little looser.

Please post the p2p measurement also.

Right so, got home to find my Vintage 1966 Kersey wool pea 34R.

 

Sadly 2 buttons have broken during transit and there are 2 cuts in the coat at the top right of the coat about 0.5 inch in length. Should I return the jacket or get a tailor to stitch these up? The buttons I can manage with, will buy some off ebay and replace them. There are also a few areas where stitching is a little loose, can the tailor sort these out?

 

Fit pics, sorry for the face obscurity, but cannot be too sure if the worlds crime enformcement agencies are scouring these pages. Thats a joke!

Thoughts on the fit? Just wearing a tshirt underneath and sorry for the joggers, thats how i roll at home.

 

7002 right side buttons broken

700 Arms seem slightly bulbous, but with a jumper in there I reckon it would be a decent look.

400

400 broken buttons on right side, I have the pieces so will probably glue them until i get replacements.

 

400 Inside lining

400 Some stitching at the bottom is coming loose, can the tailor sort this?

700 Now for the rips, thats on the right shoulder blade, about 0.5 inch

700 And the front right shoulder rip. Again can the tailor sort these?

 

Please can you give me your thoughts el pronto as I dont have long to return it. If these can be sorted I am inclined to keep it, I think I could have gotten away with a 34S as I prefer a shorter body and sleeve but may ask the tailor about this too. Jacket cost £100 inc del. Dont think I could have gotten a cheaper one from VT as have had a quick butchers. Overall am happy with the jacket, I think I may even have been able to fit in a 32S some of you may disagree.

 

For the record I am 5"6', 36-37 (38 inhaled decent breath) and have a 30-31 waist.

 

Sorry for the long post and looking forward to some responses and constructive criticism.
