Can you tell me a little bit about how the shoulders are padded? Is it possible to get no shoulder padding at all?

 

The style is Luxire Standard, with additional hand work.

 

The shoulders are not padded by default. Can be padded as desired. There are no additional charges for any  customizations except handwork or any special material requested.

So its been a long time coming but I finally took a spontaneous shot on a coat I came across on ebay. Had to do some last minute research (reading the peacoat threads and the dating thread) and hoping that I made a wise choice lol.

 

My measurements in the chest area is about  37.5- 38 inches. I have plenty of jackets with a pit to pit measurement of 19 so I thought this one was the one since I have an affinity towards the 10 button version. From what I read these are a little more snug so hopefully the fit is alright. I’ll post some pics when I receive the piece. 

 

Here are the measurements from the auction:

 

Shoulder to Shoulder:  18"
Arm pit to Arm pit:       19"
Sleeve Length:            24"
Back Length:   31"
 
Any input would be appreciated. Wondering if the seller took correct measurements (fingers crossed).

If the seller measured correctly, it ought to give you a nice trim fit. Let us know how it works out.

Here is a size 42 WWII peacoat on a 42" chest (mine). That is as slim fitting as I want to wear. A size 40 in a WWII would be a bit tight for my preferences. I can wear a size 40 in the post war vintage models.as they are just a bit larger.

EDIT NOTE: For my tastes, the sleeves should be another inch or so longer. There is enough material in the cuff to lengthen the sleeves, but it doesn't bother me that much, so I just leave it. Actually, this may be a coat I gave to a friend of mine several years ago, so it is no longer in my closet and available to be altered.

This is the picture I came across and it made my decision easy. The fit looks real geat. Anything fitter would make me feel uneasy lol. Thanks!

where would be the best place to purchase anchor peacoat buttons?

eBay.

So I bought my Sterlingwear Navigator, but the navy blue isn't as dark as I had hoped (I'm a black-jacket type of guy). I think the color is keeping me from falling in love with it.

I just came across another jacket, a Spiewak 'Dugan' peacoat and was wondering if anyone had any experience with the brand or the particular model peacoat. Fit, finish, quality?

Note: I've tried on the Schott 740N, thought it to be very bulky (but also very warm).

I picked up a Navigator this week as well. Stopped by the E. Boston store. I'm feeling exactly the same as you. I love the fit and the 100% wool has a much nicer feel than the 80/20 blend of the Authentic/Classic versions, but I much prefer the dark, dark navy of the other versions. I'm on the fence about exchanging it for the Authentic. The insulated versions are a bit warmer as well. Decisions...

Go with the Authentic then. I would do it myself too except they don't have my size in stock and I'm extremely impatient..don't want to wait.

I just ordered the Spiewak Dugan from Zappos. They say I got the last one so I should receive it tomorrow and then I can try it on and compare to the Navigator.

Hi guys,

I bought the Schott's 740C peacoat and I have a question regarding the fit.

Here's the album: http://imgur.com/a/f5jLv

 

Am I wrong if I say that it's a little bit too tight on the chest? I had to size down 2 times to get the proprer shoulder and sleeves fit. I'd rather avoid to have to ship it back since I live in Canada and the customs will be quite a pain.

 

Is it fixable? One of my relative suggest that I change the buttons placement a little to the left give me some space. Is it a good idea?


Thanks a lot for your help!

If it feels too tight, it probably is. It looks long in the torso, but that could be the angle of the pictures. The wool shell will stretch and break in over a few weeks. So, if it is just a little tight, it may fix itself. Otherwise it will remain too tight.

In the authentic Naval peacoats, when the buttons become lose, do you fix them yourself or take it to the tailor? I noticed that one of the buttons is lose and wondering if this is something I should do or take somewhere. I noticed that the stitching is done within the jacket itself and not through the satin lining of the coat. Thanks!

Pulled the trigger on a sterlingwear 44r yesterday from eBay. That's all I know about it. It's NWOT and was $75 so I figured even not knowing if it was the navigator or authentic it would be worth it. Hoping I didn't need a 42. Guess I'll find out.
