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
Price was $40USD
Stats on me until I can get a cloth tape for proper sizing
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.
