Hey guys, I was at a friends house helping him clean out his closet, and I came upon his American Eagle Peacoat. I tried it on, and the fit was absolutely perfect. The size small was actually such a good fit that he offered to sell it to me, it is a size small. What I'm most worried about is that since I live in Fort Lee, NJ... the winter gets frighteningly cold. I'm talking weekly/monthly temps below 20 degrees. I looked up the peacoat online and found out what this peacoat was made of. 54% Recycled Wool, 29% Polyester, 9% Acrylic, 8% Other Fibers
That is my main problem. Will that peacoat be able to protect me from the cold? The coat felt very thin and light, and I feel like it wont..
*edit* I'm an idiot for even asking that question.. the fit was just too good I was trying to convince myself lol!
I'm currently looking to purchase a slim fit peacoat that is considerably thick and warm for this upcoming winter. I do not know my measurements other than my waist at 31. I am 5'7, 155 pounds, athletic body with a V-tapered body.. I know many of you guys would suggest a WW2 issued coat judging from these past posts but something I cannot live with is the fact that the original owner of the coat has most likely passed away. I can't bring myself to wear a coat that was worn by somebody that has passed. Call me a baby but its just something I cannot bring myself to do.
What are some brands I can check out that will suit my needs?
Right now I currently have a Tommy Hilfiger melton wool-blend peacoat, the $250 from Macy's, in a size S(navy). It fits me too big. I can't tailor it because buying a new coat in the price range of $0-$150 would be more affordable.
