Thanks!

Looks pretty droopy in the shoulders. What fabric is that?
post #5657 of 5734

The fabric is dugdale wool 25oz. I can't just send it back, as the jacket is MTM. I have perfectly fitting Luxire shirts and my measurements for this coat were recommendations based on those shirt measurements.

 

Is there any chance in having this sorted out by a tailor? Especially the collar bothers me, it just seems too short.

PSA: For Toronto residents who is looking for a Billy Reid James Bond pea coat, I saw a size M at The Bay in Sherway for $599.

It is in their basement's men's section under the escalator.

The tailor could take in the shoulder by a lot. And maybe take in a bit at the waist. I'm not sure what can be done about the collar. The original Skyfall coat has a really short collar, which is why I don't like it.

Just picked up from the tailor (had to get the sleeves shorten) my newly-acquired J Crew Dock pea coat in dried olive. Very happy with the fit and the color.

My other pea coat is a 2 years old RL Academy in navy blue. The dried olive certainly stands out.

Benjamin, much too big all over. I'm guessing it is at least a size too big.

Hello. I'm new to the board and wanted to know if anyone has any experience with both of these coats? I have a Schott, but I'm curious to know if the Sterlingwear is warmer. I know the Schott is 32oz and the Sterlingwear is 24...

Thanks for reading!

Do you guys think anchor buttons are necessary?

Only if you want them. I would have nothing else. But that is just me.

Anchor buttons, yes. It's part of what makes it distinctive as a pea coat.

The Merchant Fox Reefer Jacket is on sale

http://www.trunkclothiers.com/brands/the-merchant-fox/reefer-jacket.html

Lovely. It's a peacoat, right?

post #5667 of 5734
No, not really.

I've never heard of a reefer jacket (wait, I had one of those in college but I did not inhale). Seriously, though, I think it's based on the pea coat but it strays a bit. I wouldn't think of it as a pea coat if I saw someone wearing it.

And WTF--475 pounds for that? For that price I would think you could do better.

A Reefer is the name given to a peacoat worn by officers and chiefs. The coat pictured is not a reefer. Nor is it a peacoat.

In my opinion, based on reviews of the Schott and the Sterlingwear, the latter is of higher quality. I have had a couple of the Sterlingwear current issue peacoats, and they are warm and of high quality. Sterlingwear sells these to the public under the name of Mil-Spec peacoats. One must call the company and place the order that way.

For sizing info, read the guide linked to in my signature line below. The fitting section is near the end.

And, welcome to the forum. PC.

If anyone wants a 32oz schott peacoat size XL I have one for very cheap.
