Definitely measure yourself before making a judgment. I have a 1979 36R, and it fits me well. It's not a slim fit, as the sleeves and chest are large enough to fit a thick ski sweater without binding. Good luck finding a vintage peacoat with a slim fit, the only place it will fit closely would be the chest, if sized correctly.
I am ~5'11", 140, with a 32 waist, and probably slimmer in the chest and shoulders than you. Check my profile for previous posts in this thread, where I posted the measurements of my coat, that may help you.

There is no way to know if this coat will fit you without knowing your chest measurement and if the seller has measured correctly--usually not.

Below I have provided you a link to my peacoat dating guide. Toward the end is information on proper fit, and instructions to the seller for the proper method for measuring the p2p of pea coats.

Yes, I am sure acclimitization plays a part. Also important in my situation is the fact that I am, as my wife says, "easily chilled." Whether I am on a motorcycle, on horseback while fox hunting or sitting in a football stadium on Sunday afternoon, I usually feel the cold more than most. Don't know if it is due to lack of substantial body fat or internal temperature regulation, but I am sensitive to the cold.

Bought an Alpha pea coat. Sizing is a bit off. 

 

Is a Sterlingwear 24oz a safe bet?

Guys do you think wearing Peacoats in a tropical country nice?

Hi everybody, really interesting thread, some of the vintage navy peacoats look great.

 

I was hoping for a little advice regarding sleeve length. I bought the Saint Laurent peacoat from autumn and winter 2013, but still haven't worn it because I haven't got around to shortening the sleeves yet. I was wondering if there are any rules for sleeve length for peacoats, or guidelines that I could follow. At the moment the sleeve comes right down to the first knuckle of my thumb (the metacarpo-phalangeal joint), which looks too long. On the runway it was shown with the sleeves cropped up on the wrist where blazer sleeves would be, but I think this looks too short. I tried searching, but couldn't find anything to answer my question. Here's a picture of the jacket on a model:

Thank you.

Apologies if this has been asked before...

I'm looking to invest in a high-end peacoat. Does anyone have experience with cashmere pea coats? My understanding is that they are warmer, but will I be able to go out in snow, etc.? Any other concerns?

so quick question without going over the entire thread.

what NEW peacoat can i buy that is made in usa and ~$200 and under...

sterlingwear still best?

What do you think about this peacoat by Fred Perry? I was offered one but... it fits too big for me. I am selling it but, do you reckon it is a bit too long? Supposedly thats the way it is supposed to be used.

I bought a Sterlingwear Authentic recently (will post fit pics soon). Does anyone know where to find the same buttons a little bit smaller? Or any other tip for new buttons?

Yay or Nay? I know it's far from traditional but I'm not looking for a traditional peacoat at the moment so that's fine for me. Do you think it's over-designed though? Any thoughts are appreciated!

I dislike the hanging placket on the right side of the jacket. What purpose does it serve?

I think a more traditional peacoat is best, even though something out of the ordinary is ok too, but I'm not feeling the contours of that peacoat design.

Looks a lot like an admiral's peacoat. Not too long.

I agree that the shoulder patch seems a bit off. If it weren't hanging off the body of the coat I would be fine with it. The overall jacket is fine to me. Seems like a detail that I could change my mind on, though, when seen in person. Who makes it?

Thanks everyone for the input. I haven't made up my mind yet so I will probably try it on and return it if it still seems off somehow.

The jacket is from Wooyoungmi and the shoulder patch is supposed to be a gunflap or storm flap which I haven't seen in a peacoat before I believe.
