Yeah. That's a damned shame, and it came as a complete surprise to some people, lol. They ordered the coat before the site had been updated to show the nylon, and when they got it, they found a pleasant surprise on the tag.

 

I think that it was absolutely worth it last year, but if I had to buy it from the second run (or whatever run they're on now), I'd probably be hesitant. They started using black leather almost immediately after the first run.

The charcoal is 100% wool. The navy and the yet to be released black are 80/20. I just received the charcoal in a size large. I'll have to post my impressions and maybe some pictures soon.

What's up with Schott's website not having anything below 3XL or something? Is it because tis the season?

As ordered, made a Bond style peacoat using 24 Oz 100% wool from Dugdale, Made in England fabric, genuine Italian leather, horn buttons, lined with quilted viscose having another layer of wool quilted inside. Will keep you warm in Vostok. Lighter lining recommended for New Yorkers. No lining for Londoners.

I wear as 42 in suits, and am looking into the schott 740n. Anyone have an idea what size would provide a close but not tight fit?

Read the sizing instructions in my peacoat dating guide. If you can get the seller to give you an accurate p2p, it removes the guesswork. The link is in my signature line below. The sizing section is toward the end.

The company rep' said that they ran out of wool and had to go with a blend. I'd predict that the grey will be a blend soon. It's already backordered from people who can't get the blue one. The grey's nice, but I'm sure that (if it was as available), most people would rather have the blue because of the movie connect. After all, if it weren't for the movie, no one would be buying the coat.

My charcoal is thankfully 100% wool. That may change, but since the color's probably just for this year, it may simply sell out once the material is gone, like the chocolate brown version from two years ago.

 

While Skyfall introduced me to the BR peacoat, its look is what appealed to me. I'm really not a fan of the overly large collars many peacoats have. I prefer the smaller collar on the Billy Reid, along with the leather accents. But had TOJ come out with their planned admiral's peacoat I'd have gone with them for the interior lining and pockets and the, in my opinion, superior leather detailing.

Long time lurker, first time poster with a quick question and some background:

 

I updated my peacoat from an amateur yet dependable Ralph Lauren from 7 years ago, unstructured, unlined, 80/20 mix to a Sterlingwear Navigator, 44R (I'm a 42R suit size), 24oz 100% virgin wool, satin lining. Needless to say, there is a big difference in quality, weight, appearance and more importantly, jacket structure (lining, shoulder pads, etc).

 

I've noticed that trying to drive in the Sterlingwear is somewhat uncomfortable compared to my old pea coat, meaning it's like trying to drive in a suit jacket or blazer to me...doesn't feel natural, more constricting than what I'm used to (I don't drive in my suit jacket, I hang it in the back), can't extend my arms straight out as much as I want.

 

My question: Is this normal with a properly structured pea coat or should there be enough movement freedom to do whatever I want comfortably? Am I just used to the lesser quality thinness of the Ralph Lauren? In comparison I feel like I could do jumping jacks in the RL and with the Sterlingwear I'm having difficulty driving.

Anyone have any experience with Lost Worlds cotton duck peacoats?  I know the quality is supposed to be top-notch, but I'm wondering about fit.  BR/J.Crew smalls fit me perfectly, and I'm about a 37S for jackets.  I'm 5'8", about 155, with lean build/slightly broad shoulders.  Wondering if a small in the brown cotton duck peacoat would be an OK fit (since medium sizes are listed as 38-40).  Thanks!

Bumping this because my first post was held in moderation/black box limbo forever and then got buried.

No. But what an odd picture! That guy is all torso and no legs.

You ought to be able to cross your arms in front of your body and touch your hands to the back of your upper arms above the elbows. If you can't do this, then the coat may be too small across the shoulders. The good news is that the wool shell will stretch a bit. So, if your hands will almost touch your upper arms, you may be able to stretch it out enough to allow good movement for activities such as driving.
