I got that one too. Which suprised the hell out of me b/c I put away a few hundred planning on a nice designer coat this year. Winded up liking H&M better than the others I saw! And it only cost $130!!!

If people are still looking for peacoats, try ebay. I have one that looks exactly like J's (might be the same model even) that I got on ebay a couple of years back for around 30$ or so.

I'm a 38r and I bought a 36r, the fit is slim, it's great. It has a name and a service no. on the inside, as well as a contract no. I can't make out the first two though, but the contract no. is printed. Is there anyway I could date this thing?

Yea, i've been looking at some of the peacoats on ebay. The problem is not knowing exactly how it'll fit. I'm gonna buy one in the next week. If it doesn't fit, i'll just throw it in the buy/sell forum.

I'm torn at which length I should get too. I'm just shy of 6'2", so if the sleeves on the 36R really are just 18", then they must be too short. The body on the 'long' seems way too long though

The answer I got about length from Sterlingwear was:

"We measure the arm length armpit to first thumb knuckle then we subtract
about 4" for the armhole."

I ordered a long from Sterlingwear that should be delivered today. I should be able to give confirmation on the sleeve and body length this evening.

OK, got the Sterlingwear pea coat today and the fit and color are great (I got the Oxford Grey). I got a long just like I do with sports coats/suits and went down one size in the chest. With an undershirt and button up shirt underneath its a snug fit without being tight. Any smaller and it definitely would be too tight in the shoulders and the hips. Length wise I think its perfect. It just covers my butt and the sleeves are just where I like outerwear sleeves too be (in other words longer than sports coat sleeves). The length measurements do seem to match what Sterlingwear lists on their size chart. An important note is that the body length is measured from the top of the collar. As for the sleeves, the sleeve inseam matches the size chart (19") and the outside of the sleeve (from the seam where the sleeve meets the jacket to the end of the sleeve) measures 27".

Drake and J, Those are some seriously nice looking, fitted peacoats. Who makes them and where can I get one (of each)? Also, as far as fit with the Sterlingwear, should I size down one size? Their website says the coat is already fitted and recommends sizing up one size. I'm confused. Adamm

I think the milsurp place by my house has sterlingwear peacoats for $90. I was there a couple days ago looking for a gift and saw them. The feel, and buttons look the same. I'll check back this week, because if they are sterlingwear i could help some people out. edit: Only the navy blue ones are $75. The black ones are the normal $125

Could anyone with a Sterlingwear peacoat please answer my question about sizing?

I don't have any suit jackets or blazers to compare with, but I measure 31" across the chest with a tshirt on. If I want a super slim fit, should I try the size 30 (with a chest size of 28") or a 32 (with chest size of 30")

Thanks in advance

Cowwoofwoof, did you ever decide on a size?

I also measure about 31" across the chest and I'm about 5'8". I'm trying to decide between 30S/30R or 32S/30R. Can anyone offer any advice?

I ordered a 30S. but for some reason I was sent a 32S. The coat seems to be a good fit, but not skin tight and the length is perfect for me (I'm 5"6). A 32R or a 30R would probably be the best fit for you, depending on how tight you want it or how many layers you will be wearing underneath.

I'm pretty short, so I think that's a decent chest size for me

30" chest? Go to Ukraine and eat some of those lard sandwiches, or cook a Turducken and eat it all up! I thought I was scrawny with a 37" chest. I like poly's modified pea coat - it looks more modern, and fashiony; but I don't care for the thread indents where the buttons were removed. I still prefer the classic double breasted look though, but it works for poly.
