post #5086 of 5820

I bought a peacoat on eBay recently, believing it was a Vietnam era Kersey according to the photos in the listing. But what was given to me was the phony version as described by Peacoat's thread (meaning, they sent me a different item).

 

Does anyone know if the fake version, especially this one, is made of 100% wool? I have nothing to compare this one too, unfortunately.

i wouldn't doubt that you could dispute with ebay and win. unfortunately (or forunately in this case), ebay heavily sides with and favors buyers in most all claims.

How was the coat described? Was a picture of the tag included in the listing? Was the coat pictured not the coat delivered? The answer to those questions will determine your success. Also a simple message to the seller might take care of it.

The seller admitted his mistake and agreed to either lower the price or do a full refund and pay for all shipping. Are "fake" productions like this generally not 100% wool of good quality?

The origina listing had the authentic tags per your guide. He said it was a simple mix-up with his other peacoats he was selling.

Is it normal for a vintage 34 to measure 19" p2p? Or is that big?

I thought it looked ok, apart from the obvious sleeves, perhaps one size too big.

I believe that is the correct measurement for a 34. My vintage 34 also measured p2p of 19".

amgwhip123 Looks like you need to size down. The shot of your back in particular shows lots of excess material.

As Goonz said, that is the correct measurement for a size 34. The smaller sizes up to and including size 36 have a p2p larger than what we would expect. Size 38 and above follow the normal p2p protocol. So, a p2p of 19" on a size 34 is normal.

You should have tried the small. The sleeves are too long and too wide, and the backview is nasty.

yea, I will get the sleeves shortened, I actually purchased the size S and the size M. I still havent decided which one to keep or return, however,  I know the coat pictured  is a tad big, but I want to gain some size in the next few months.

 

The Small fits me better right now, however, If i wear a thick hoodie underneath the back feels very snug, and sometimes the vents "pull" when all the buttons are fastened over the layers. The PRL peacoat fits surprisingly trim, almost like a custom fit.
