Thanks, Peacoat. But I don't see a link?

Mrs. NOBD has some sewing experience (see the link Second Life for a Suit in my signature), so the pockets will be safe, I guess. smile.gif

Hello. I have a question. I am 6' 3 and I have a bit of a slender build. My chest is measured to be 40. I am having a bit of a hard time choosing which peacoat to go for, since I need a Kersey wool peacoat and I don't want to make the wrong choice to buy. Which peacoat is more recommended?

Is it more better to go for a 38 or a 40? I also have long arms, so will arm length matter a bit? Thank you.

Looking at the auction pictures and tags, looks just like the one Burgerkong featured in his post last week
It's too small for me, but check it out guys:

thanks, i was the one that picked this up. went to the army surplus store in kensington market in toronto that was mentioned earlier in the thread. tried on a 38 and new it was perfect for me. got in the car and purchased it from the seller. ~120 with shipping compared to 250+ 13% tax is undeniably a steal. should be the EXACT same pea coat. fidelity x gerald & stewart. 

 

i appreciate you sharing that link. get the coat in a couple days. can't wait since it's finally winter in toronto.

I found this pea coat on sale on the Ralph Lauren site. Has anyone tried one of these on at all? Would like to know if it's more square cut, or slim fitted. Thanks for you help.

The sizing looks like a typical box cut IMO, but of course, you may consider those sizes to be slim fitting. It depends on your body shape.

Decided to pick up another coat from VT, this time in a size 38R (as marked on the label.). 60s era, double stitching on the arm, Kersey wool (though it feels slightly rougher and definitely lighter than the size 40 I have). Anyway, it came today and while it is trimmer in the shoulders it feels more or less the same everywhere else. A P2P measurement gave me 21.25. Doesn't seem right.

Thanks for the reply. I'm quite slim, I was thinking of ordering it in the small just so it's more snug fitting. It doesn't get crazy cold where I live so wont have to layer under it.

Does it seem like a decent coat for the sale price? Or could I get a better quality coat for around the same price or slightly higher?

Thanks!

Sorry, but with your chest size, height and arm length, you won't find a vintage coat to fit. Maybe if you found a size 40 in extra long, it might fit you. I'm not even sure they made them in X long. You might find a current issue in X Long. I'm sure this isn't the first time you have had problems with fit.

Yes. It is hard. I did go to Uncle Sam's Army Navy Outfitters in Manhattan, and I was measured to be a 40 chest. The person recommended a long or tall peacoat. I'm not so sure if I was mis-measured. I don't want to go for years without a Kersey peacoat, or a peacoat that doesn't fit. Is there a store that can measure me correctly, without having doubts?

That chest size marks it more of a size 40 than a 38. That's why I stress getting an accurate p2p from the seller. Unfortunately, VT thinks they know more than anyone else about size. They are reluctant to actually measure the p2p. Their thinking seems to be, if the tag says it is a 38, then it is a 38.

I would be willing to bet the coat they sold you stated on the information blurb that the measured chest size was 38.

Probably best bet is to send it back, tell them the problem and ask that for the next coat they actually measure the p2p. Send them my instructions from the sizing guide.
