[michaeljackson]Yes, I'm bad[/michaeljackson]

I don't think I would change the buttons on a coat with history like that one. On the other hand: you won't "destroy" the coat by changing the buttons. You can always change back without damage done (keep the old buttons...). Can't help you with metal finish button suggestions.

Also, what do you guys do keeping your coats lint free? The kersey seems to be especially attractive to lint, for some reason? I use a sticky roller, but it's kind of tedious. Just wondering if there are any other methods that people are using.

I have posted the link to lint brush in a prior post, but don't know where it is. When I get back to my computer this PM, I will see if I can find it.

Quick question regarding the Sterlingwear Authentic - are the sleeves satin-lined like the top half of the jacket or no?
post #5318 of 5748
So, uh, anyone ever try to larger boys' sizes of Sterlingwear? 30S is too tight in the chest and 32S is too wide in the shoulders. Thinking an MTM using a boys' L or XL might do the trick...

I would certainly think so. All quality jackets and coats of this type are lined in the sleeves for easy entry and exit. If it is a real concern, I would send an email to customer service.

Hey guys I while searching for a peacoat lucked into one that I think fits OK but unsure if its quite correct as the sleeves seem a bit long/bigger then my arms and the area of the armpits and shoulders seem to fit well and when buttoned up it does not feel to be "I'm swimming" in it. I've tried it on with just a tee shirt and a mid weight hoodie and the addition of that hoodie seemed to to a decent bit to flesh out the sleeves. Big thanks to Peacoat for his guide to help get me this far with the info.

 

Here's the stats on the Coat:

1980s-current issue US Navy Enlisted

Major Coat Company

Size 42L

Price was $40USD

 

Stats on me until I can get a cloth tape for proper sizing

5ft 11ish

140-155lbs

32x32 pant size

Shirts are XLs

I just tried a "Stanford" brand button up shirt I found in my closet and the tag said "regular fit 16(34/35)" but of course sizes may vary right?

 

Here is a pic with it on and just a tee shirt under(just had tossed it on to get a look)

If you are 155 lb., a size 42 is going to be waay big on you. For comparison, I am 6', 190 lb. with a well proportioned, athletic build, and a 42 regular is a good fit with a sweater. Without a sweater, a size 40 regular is a good fit. My chest measures 42".

I was thinking as such. I'd imagine with a guess I'd be in the 33 to 36 area?

 

 

I suppose I should see about a trade or selling for a better sized one yes? Is there a good place to go besides Ebay for getting a value assuming that it's worth more then I paid.

 

Can I assume it is too much to have a tailor take in without it looking wonky?
