From the lack of response to your question, I would say that most on here don't much care for cotton pea coats. Or it could be that as the peacoat season is over, no one is checking the thread?

My feeling is that if you can put a cotton peacoat to use, then go ahead and get it.

Can anyone recommend a decent breathable cover for my vintage peacoat bearing in mind i'm in the UK .

I need a casual but stylish cotton canvas peacoat for the summer, best would be navy with brown buttons, any tips?

Camplin Colony Peacoat

Colony Peacoat a short officer Reefer
for Spring – Summer season, realized
with canvass cotton, with the same
detailes of every Camplin Peacoat.


(Click the beige/tan thumbnail.)

Buttons are metal though, I think. Oh, and not navy... Well, maybe they have different colours.

I was thinking more of a summer pea coat, canvas, lightweight, trench coat like, just as a short jacket, like this:
Problem is that I can not find something similar anywhere.

Thanks, didn't see that one on SS. Although I know SS have good quality, I think it looks like a winter coat even though it's cotton, must be the design.

What do you think about this one? Flatseven trench coat
Seems like it's producet by a South Korean company, but had good feedback on amazon, so I guess that might mean that is not crap? (Even thought ppl on amazon haven no clue on clothing quality):

70% cotton 30% polyester
100$

Summer and polyester, no thanks. smile.gif

cuffs and epaulette reminded me of Prada stuff I'd seen last fall/winter, but doesn't appear to be from that collection. anyone know where this is from?

I'm a first-time poster, moving to Chicago in the fall for school. I'm looking for a peacoat that will layer well (shirts and sweaters) and block out the wind well. Price is important, so I'm mainly looking vintage.

 

I've just done a chest measurement as per this post: http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?35824-PEACOAT-DATING

and came up with 36" twice. I am 5'10", 135lbs, skinny. Does this mean I should look for coats in 36R? Peacoat has said the smaller sizes are cut somewhat differently. 

 

Peacoat (or anyone else), what p2p measurement should I look for, on VintageTrends or otherwise (eBay)?

 

I've read of difficulty getting Gary at VintageTrends to inspect and measure coats, is this still going on? I don't have the money to tie it all up in VT store credit if there's a mistake.

 

Thanks for the help this thread has already been, and in advance for the answers!

 

Edit: I can post more measurements if they'll be helpful, just let me know how.

I'll let someone more knowledgeable advise you on the rest of your questions but as far as VT and measurements go, I'll say this: I would not bother trying to get them to measure a coat. Read Peacoat's guide, pick the size that should fit your measurements and then make sure the coat you buy is of the year you desire and has the desired size marked on the original label. 99.99% of the time the measurements will be on the money. You may end up like me and get, say, a size 40 that measured like a 42, but it seemed to be to be the exception rather than the rule. Do not go by VT's measurements. Do not go by their sizing. Look at the size on the label. No label? Pass on it.

Thanks for the info.

Sugar!!! Went out last night and left my coat on a chair for 5 minutes.. came back and someone had pinched it! Can anyone recommend a similar replacement?; I really liked the inner collar that this coat has (not sure what that's called?) - And it was a gift from my mum and I feel bad losing it frown.gif

(This was a Tarocash, I think from a couple of seasons ago)
