A better quality might be Sterlingwear. With your height and weight, though, it will be difficult to find a fit.

MEGA PEACOAT THREAD - 61 threads merged - all Peacoat questions HERE - Page 345post #5161 of 60553/4/13 at 5:22pmpost #5162 of 60553/5/13 at 8:12pmpost #5163 of 60553/6/13 at 7:19pmpost #5164 of 60553/7/13 at 3:49am
First post here!
Some years ago I decided to get myself a nice Peacoat with the help from Mr. Peacoat's excellent dating article on the fedora lounge. I ended up purchasing a size 36 1967 peacoat from vintagetrends. The item was not as "mint" as Gary said. You all know how sellers are... but, OK, I can live with it.
The problem is that although that coat fits me I can't hug myself without straining!
Last week I got this one on the bay for $25 plus shipping. It does not have a size tag but I measured it using the excellent aforementioned guide and the result is:
Pit to pit measurement: 54 centimeters/ 21 1/4 inches.
True size: 40
I was hopping to get a size 38...
I knew (suspected) what I was buying because the seller photographed the coat extensively but omitted the worst details...
Keep on reading to find out.
It is a cold, gray, cloudy morning so not much natural lightning
The general condition of the lining is not that bad but it sure could use some ironing. (can it be ironed?)
Dry cleaners' tag. The wool feels rough to the tact
I have no clue what the heck this white thing is.
Outer shell is pretty much intact
The right row of button holes shows some damage but it can easily be repaired with a sewing needle, thread and some elbow grease.
And corduroy-lined pockets. For us folks who suffer from cold hands these are a blessing.
When was it made?
Well according to mr. Peacoat's guide it has to had been manufactured no later than 1965 as it has a double row of button holes.
The left-hand row does not show signs of use.
The buttons are stiffly sewn (they can not be turned by hand, I hope that makes sense) and I think that is the main culprit of the dreadful state the the right-handed button holes are.
Hope you enjoyed it!

i actually like the lapels. imo, the shorter length, narrow lapels, trim fit, and horn buttons they look more appropriate with typical every day bizcash than the more traditional nautical fit.
and yeah, seeing daniel craig kick throw some dude out the window of a skyscraper prolly had something to do with it too.post #5169 of 60553/8/13 at 5:42pmQuote:
I would have. In fact, I found out about the coat before I saw the movie. I was searching for peacoats with peak lapels, and the Billy Reid coat kept popping up. Of course, it popped up because of the movie though. Before Skyfall, I'd never really watched a James Bond movie, so that wasn't what sold me. The coat has a slim fit (not just a less boxy fit), peak lapels and very nice leather accents. I'm not sure why it's unlined, but it feels great. It's a welcomed change. It's like wearing a sweater.

I've been receiving praise for my peacoat via Private Message and here on the forum, particularly regarding the fit, so many thanks for the kind words! I have been asked to provide measurements, and I cannot edit my original post to include the information, so I am adding it now as an addendum. I have a 36" chest, I'm 5'10" and 155lbs with a slim athletic build.
Here is J.Crew's reply to the measurements for the XS:
Center back length - 30.25 in.
Center front length - 26.5 in.
Across the shoulder - 16.75 in.
Chest circumference - 40 in.
Waist circumference - 36.5 in.
Sweep circumference - 40.5 in.
Sleeve length from shoulder 25.5 in.
Sleeve length from center back - 34 in.
Cuff circumference - 11.25 in.
Neck width from high point of shoulder to high point of shoulder - 6.5 in.
With late winter here now and the daily temperatures hovering around the freezing point here in Canada, this Thinsulate-lined peacoat is starting to get a bit warm...post #5172 of 60553/10/13 at 1:07ampost #5173 of 60553/11/13 at 11:24ampost #5174 of 60553/12/13 at 1:50pmpost #5175 of 60553/16/13 at 7:46pm
