Nice. buttons look a bit dodgy though. is it definitely real?

I think if I were going to get a peacoat, I would opt for the real thing. It would be less costly and probably warmer~!

I like is well enough, but I too would probably go for a more traditional color and style (dark blue or black with hand warmer pockets) for a pea coat. I have never owned a Marc Jacobs coat, so I can't comment on them.

Get a real peacoat from a military surplus store or from sterlingwear.

i usually don't like the short ones (or the ones that don't touch the knees) but i like this one. i think i'd like it better in a darker color, though.

I'm almost certain the coat is real. i agree that a darker, more traditional color is better, however, is the lighter color too weird? I feel like the grey is still dark enough so that the coat isnt too unusual.

I prefer the grey to a darker colour.

I quite like the fabric. I was looking at a similar herringbone peacoat last winter from Vivienne Westwood with a view to having it altered to fit properly, but ultimately decided against it.

I would definitely change the buttons.

Looks nice. Get it.

I like the light grey shown there. If it was my size, I'd be bidding on it too! If you like it, and it will fit you, get it. I don't necessary agree that anything remotely similar to a peacoat-style cut must be black and an official USN peacoat (or try darn hard to look just like it).

Follow up: Did you win it?

did not win, didnt expect price to jump up to 560 at the last minute. 560 is a little hefty anyways for a 06 jacket, even if it was new.

Someone must have wanted it badly for it to go at that price. I'm not a fan of the color, but it otherwise seems to be a nice jacket.

wow that seems like it went for a pretty high price. You could find a similar quality jacket for much less if you look hard enough.
