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?

The first thing you need to do is to get an accurate measurement of your chest. My peacoat dating guide has a section on fitting toward the end. It also gives directions of the proper method of measuring the pit to pit that you can send to the seller. This takes a lot of the guess work out of buying online. The guide is linked to in my signature line.

P-coat: What is your opinion of the Billy Reid 'Bond' peacoat? And of peacoats with luxury details like leather piping, etc, in general?

Expensive.

They are fashion garments styled after the peacoat but not true peacats.

I bought a fitted Peacoat at Benetton last fall.

Had a true US Navy Peacoat once ... it was warm but the fit was awful - nothing stylish about it at all. The Benetton one is much nicer.

Peacoat,

 

It looks like my chest size is a 34 and I used the pit to pit on the coat and seems the tag is true to size. I tried on a sweater this morning before work(pre tape getting) and it seemed to fill out the gap in sizing a bit but 8 sizes is a lot to make up for.

@Kayumochi -- I like Bennetton in general, but you've got to realise that USN peacoats come from a wide range of makers with corresponding cuts. Count the fact that makers have changed over the decades and you will see that not all USN peacoats are the same. Some fit better than others.

Yes, the Sterlingwear Authentic is lined in the sleeves.

I got a 38R 1952 pea coat from VintageTrends and I'm unsure about the fit and amount of wear on it. I don't know if it's just worn from regular wear or if there is some kind of moth damage. The shoulder is a little bit wide. Also, the sleeves feel a bit too billowy, but is that acceptable on pea coats? I took a picture of how much empty space there was in the sleeves. When worn with a scarf and sweater I still have room to spare, should I consider sizing down to a 36? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Tried on Club Monaco and J crew peacoats.. Damn either I'm tiny or these damn coats fit WAY too big... I guess I'll have to go vintage or Sterlingwear, but Sterlingwear raised their prices baldy[1].gif

Look around. I ordered a Sterlingwear for under $200 shipped to Canada just the other day.

I've tried on JCrew peacoat, perhaps it's the most fitted peacoat for $300 price range. CM has always run large on everything imo. If you cant fit into JCrew, don't even think of Sterlingwear.

I had a Sterlingwear before, in 34R but it was a little tight, I'm going to get luxire to make me a peacoat this time.

TBHey -- Fit looks fine to me. Sleeves are indeed slightly baggy but IMO not a big deal. Length, collar and shoulder look like they fit well. I can't tell for sure what those marks are, but to me they look like normal wear marks rather than moth damage.

The cheapest peacoat I see on their website is the Classic model for $265. What did you order for under $200?
