Would the collar on this jacket be too big to pop?

No. The collars are designed to be large so they can be turned up and block the wind.

Indeed, yes!!!! Last weekend, the temperature was a single digit; the wind chill was minus ten. I fastened every button that there was on my peacoat; I wished that my popped collar could have been a mile high to block the fierce, cutting wind. happy.gif

If one lives in the upper Midwest in the winter time, function, not style, is of utmost importance. My current issue mil-spec Sterlingwear and my vintage, Kersey wool coats get the job done.

Perhaps, but I want to avoid looking like a vampire here I guess. This particular coat is a 1962 USN kersey wool beauty that I've been looking at. About to pull the trigger, but not sure about that collar..

The collar and the lapels on the 1962 are not oversized; they are basically the same as the other years. If all else is within your parameters, pull that trigger!

Oh, and looking like a vampire is not always a bad thing. I have found that many females are intrigued by them.

I kinda think if you don't want the popped collar look, why are you getting this jacket? That's part of its look. You might as well say, well I don't want it double breasted or to have nautical buttons.

Oh hey, I fully intend to pop the collar. As Peacoat has noted, I just want to avoid oversized collars that would look comical.

When I was younger, much younger, and spending time in your area and in NYC, I found a peacoat and a sweater were sufficient to keep me warm. Today, I need more than that when the temps get below the 20s.

As an aside, thank you for editing your post to correct what I am sure was a typo!

Kopped the jacket. Realized the mannequin only has the third button done up which is why the collar looked off to me. Can't wait to finally end my search for the perfect peacoat!

Good, I hope it works out for you. Also hope you have read my guide on fit and sizing so you won't have any surprises about the fit.

Of course! I've read every post in this thread, as well as the one on Fedora Lounge, AAAC, and your stickied guide about Peacoat Dating.

Knowledgeable subject matter experts like yourself, McArthur on the Alden thread, etc are the reason I return to SF. smile.gif

Need advice:

 

I have a coat that's very much like a peacoat, except it has large oversized pockets sewn onto the front. They're a bit off to the side too so they go over the stitching to the side seams. Do you think it would be possible to get this coat taken in? I'm just worried the proportions would get all fucked up because of these pockets. It fits kind of boxy right now, but it's such a nice jacket.

 

The measurements are like
Chest: 23"

Midsection: 23"

Waist: 23"

 

lol

 

I'd want something like

Chest: 23"

Midsection: 20.5"
Waist: 21"

 

Someone tell me this isn't a stupid idea.

This thread is pretty much limited to peacoats. There are probably other areas on the forum where you might find a more accurate answer to your question. But if you post photos, someone might give you some comments.

With the proportions you have given, and the description of the pockets, it might be better to start over with something that is a better fit for you.

Hi,

 

Concerning the sizing of the Schott 740N. I found this picture on Amazon France for the 740N. IF I am a size 40 chest and follow what people suggest and order a size 40 740N, will the fit look like the picture ? My built is 6ft tall, 165Ilbs, chest 40 (my suits are 40), athletic frame, waist 32 ...

Hi guys. I have few questions.

#1. Is sterlingwear official webstore on sale like semi-annual or thanksgiving?

#2. I have short legs and long waist. Should I go with 2x4 buttons(mariner) or 2x3 buttons(navigator)?

#3. What is 'Sterlingwear Authentic Peacoat'? Is it something special? Or is it just another name of mariner and navigator?

Thanks a lot.
