I'm pretty OCD about clothes fitting right (i.e., slim and long enough), and this pea coat was one of the few MF pieces that I thought would actually fit me well. Kiya's measurements on SE are spot on for the 38, which is what I ordered. I think cotton duck is even taller than I am. One other thing I noticed about his fit pictures of the coat is that he buttons only three buttons, whereas I button four.

The wool lining is only stitched into the coat, and, yeah, it doesn't shrink like the denim. So, the lining wind up being a little larger than the denim coat itself. I suppose that, if someone tried to shrink the coat dramatically, then the wool lining would hang lower than the hem and start sticking out the sleeves. Mine doesn't do that, though, because I didn't shrink it that much.
