I want a classic Navy peacoat:
Only $150....
So What do you think of this Schott?
Is there anything better as far as a classic peacoat?
Thanks in advance




Classic 32 Oz. Melton Wool Naval Pea Coat 740
Our 32" Classic 32 oz. Melton Wool Naval Pea Coat, military anchor buttons, hand warmer pockets, vented back and nylon quilted lining. Our Pea Coat is made just like they made it in the Navy; with 32 oz Melton wool. Our wool is 75 percent reprocessed wool, 20 percent nylon and 5 percent other fibers. The contents are interlocked and pressed together befor the wool is cut to ensure maximum protection against the elements. In our 50-plus years of producing pea coats (also known as peacoats or pea jackets), we have perfected a wool jacket that is stylish enough to wear with a suit, but strong enough to protect you from whatever winter sends your way. Union Made in the U.S.A by UNITE HERE local 169.

Any basic navy peacoat is fine and quite a workhorse coat for winter. There's no need to shell out for those reproductions that are made in cashmere blend or something. Personally, I'd go to a place like www.american-armynavy.com and get one for half the price, or check out your local surplus store.

I don't like the recycled wool/nylon stuff. No offense to anyone who owns one, but I wouldn't do it. If you do a search, you'll see that I'm a pea coat Nazi and I really think you should make the effort to find an old one in good shape. However, the new Sterlingwear models get good marks from what I've heard. I think Brian SD has one. They're around the same price as the Schott.

And I don't know what they're smoking, but a pea coat should never be large enough to wear over a suit. It should fit snugly over a sweater, and be no bigger than that. The older ones were cut with smaller armholes and it wouldn't be possible to get a suit jacket sleeve through one comfortably.

Am I missing something, or is this Schott peacoat lacking 4 buttons?

I several dozen Schott leather jackets and really like them. However, I agree that the wool/nylon mix is not that great. RL Polo has great peacoats in wool or in cashmere. Here are some peacoats:

  1. RLPL wool/cashmere
  2. Marzotto Labs leather
  3. RLP shealing
  4. RLPL wool/cashmere
  5. Jil Sander suede
  6. NM merino
  7. RLP cashmere
  8. Prada leather

How is the quality of Schott's jackets in general and leather ones, in particular?

I have a peacoat that's composed of a wool/nylon blend, and it's held up fine. Dark navy, almost midnight colour. The armholes on it are vintage-small as well. I wouldn't think of wearing a suit under it unless it were REALLY fitted.

Having grown up in my families' Army & Navy surplus store, In Philadelphia, I think I know a little bit about peacoats.

They are too stiff and short to wear over a suit jacket. that was not their purpose. Just wear them over thick wool sweaters.

The schott jacket is great for that.

The more expensive stylized brands will have softer wool and might serve as a car coat type over coat.

I have that Schott peacoat in black leather and it's great. I wore the heck out of until about 5 years ago and it's kept me warm during many cold Canadian winters. The only drawback is that it's very heavy.
