    I just realized Sterlingwear doesn't make a navy blue Classis peacoat. Damn!

    I think they do make a navy blue peacoat. The colour they have, is very dark blue, almost black.
    Check this site to see the difference between the black and blue one: http://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/jalana...wear/raku.html


    I'll send Sterlingwear a email.

    What do you guys think of the Buzz Rickson pea coat that Self Edge had?

    http://www.selfedge.com/shop/index.p...roducts_id=361


    ive been looking at that peacoat on their site so many times. i think it is superlative and a great choice for a peacoat. too pricey for me though im sure it is worth the price.

    I recently picked up a unconventional peacoat from INC for Macy's. It has a very tailored fit, some cool subtle stichwork on the sleeves and running down the sides, and its longer so it can be either dressed up or down. Cheap too. Quality seems pretty damn good for the price, wool isnt itchy at all.

    A little shameless self-promotion:

    If anyone's looking for a black 40R peacoat, I'm selling one at a very low price: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=90434


    Damn. I wish that were a 42R. I'd grab it in a heartbeat.

    Thoughts on these? http://www1.macys.com/catalog/produc...tegoryID=15063 (and 20% off with MACYSMOBILE) I've heard good things about Andrew Marc, but I'm guessing Marc New York is some sort of "value" diffusion line? "Imported" invariably means it's made to budget somewhere in Asia, which makes me a bit skeptical. I'm leaning towards this though, unless someone dissuades me. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...entPage=family (and 30% off with HOL2008) RL's high end labels seem to be getting a lot of praise here, but the lower end like polo and rugby get nothing but flak? Still, it does seem like a good deal, attractive cut and color. No information about where it's made though, so one has to assume the worst? Sterlingwear seems nice, but I can't wait 2-4 weeks, as it's getting rather cold here and I threw away all my old winter jackets when I moved this summer, heh. On a related note: This search for a winter jacket is turning into a bit of a comedy nightmare. First I was going to get the BR car coat, but my friend overseas (who's shipping/purchasing stuff for me from the US) kept getting error messages on checkout and customer service wasn't able to help him... and then the sale ended. So instead of that, I decided to get the j.crew peacoat, but of course he picked wednesday to go out and that sale ended as well. [​IMG]

    Between the two, I'd vote Polo.

    I just got the 1910 Buzz Rickson Peacoat from Hist Pres. One word: AMAZING. The fit, fabrication and attention to detail is second-to-none. Well worth the investment in a piece that will never go out of style and will last for years.

    What a piece!

    My Sterlingwear ordered on the 25th of November came in less then a week.
