I do myself, however, wear the sleeves just a bit shorter. wink.gif Not that there's anything wrong with yours.

I would have liked an extra centimeter, but this was all we could get out of the length.

'We' (Mrs. NOBD did the work) had to use a piece of bias binding, because there wasn't much lining left in the sleeves:

Did you send them my instructions for p2p measuring? If they do it that way, even a monkey couldn't botch it.

Keep us up to date.

Yeah, I linked your article and quoted the measuring instructions. They haven't come back to me with a measurement on the 36 yet, but I'm pretty damn sure they're going to tell me it's 20".

lol....You shouldn't have bought it. That's one of the most ugly coats that I've ever seen. Only a brand-whore would buy that....can't help you.

After delaying for a year or so, I recently got a Stearlingwear spec coat and it is pretty awesome. I got stung with the import taxes though (I live in the UK). The fit is good across the shoulders but I might have to get it taken in a bit. I have a problem with jackets fitting me because I have a broad chest/shoulders and a slim waist but if I had a big belly then it would fit like a glove. I went for a 40R because I intend to wear it with fairly bulky layers underneath.

 

It is a very handsome coat though.

Or perhaps a compromise...

(Yes, it's buttoned the wrong way.)

Looks pretty neat with the odd buttoning...is that a sterlingwear classic? Its a great looking coat.

smile.gif It's the "female buttoning".

Thanks. No, it's a Fidelity by Gerald & Stewart.

anyone else have this problem? I have a "vintage" (not really) usnavy peacoat from late 80's 90's. it fits pretty well, however, it seems to attract lint like none other. I dry cleaned it for the season, but upon the first day of wearing it to and from the office, started attracting white specks of dust all over the place!! is there a way to make it attract less lint? is anti-static spray effective for this type of problem?

Thelonius Monk would be closer than Robert Redford. Or maybe Woodrow Charles Herman?
