Go with the peacoat. I have my dad's from when he was in the Navy.Also scored some decent bombers, though I'll need to get some boots, braces, and a haircut before breaking those out...

ok... how about very lightly used, or almost perfect condition, or no noticable wear, loose stiching, loose buttons, holes, fading, or other defects visible to the naked eye? does that work? what about in better condition than any other vintage or surplus peacoat ive seen?

Step 1: Find a thrift/surplus store in your area using the phonebook. Step 2: Call places you find and ask if they have any peacoats in your size. Step 3: Go to the location and purchase it! Common sense is a valuable tool, jose.

My only problem with peacoats are that they look too short. Would it be strange to wear a bridge coat?

Anybody care to tell me how these jackets are all US made and yet so cheap??

is it just me, or is the sterlingwear size chart incredibly strange?

http://www.sterlingwear.com/sizechart.html

it lists the length for a 34 Regular as 30.25 inches, which seems a bit long. Then it lists the sleeve measurement for the same size as 18 inches, which seems RIDICULOUSLY short.

Anyone care to help me out here?

I don't know if that would be strange, but you have a couple options. First of all, a lot of places make peacoat type coats that are 3/4 length. This is just one example, but if you look around, especially this fall, a lot of designers are making them:

There's also the officers coat Which is almost like a full length peacoat. John Varvatos has a cool one for fall

Do they look too short when you see them on others, or do they look like you would think it was too short wearing it? I think they look great. It is one of the few hipster uniform pieces I approve of.

Since it doesn't really get that cold in in California I really one need one so I'm looking for something rather versatile and don't know which one to go with. So which one do you guys think I could wear with jeans and woolen odd-trousers? I'm leaning towards the pea coat but maybe I'm wrong, is a pea coat too casual for woolen trousers? Is a double breasted coat too formal for jeans? I posted this in Streetwear since ~70% of my cloths are streetwear type cloths but that 30% of more woolen trousers and dress shirts is growing so I'm looking for something that I can wear with both type of cloths.
Hi he where did you find this particular peacoat ? Is this the one from ebay or the the ohter one? (I tried to search through that blog with no luck though) I like peacoats but the cut of a 'non-brand' peacoat is generally pretty baggy. Also, this peacoat is 3/4 long model I think which is nice. Oh by the way I tried on the D&G peacoat last week. Man it looked damn hot! But what would you expect for 1100 euro ($1350)? xerxes
