    Hi,

    I am looking for a field coat similar to the llbean original field coat located here: http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/18214?feat=593-GN1.

    I like the olive colour and would like as similar detailing as possible but without the bi-swing shoulders.

    I would greatly appreciate it if anybody could suggest an alternative..

    $89 for a field coat is relatively cheap. Maybe have a tailor sew the openings shut?

    Thank you very much for the suggestions!

    The jcrew jacket seems to have bi-swing shoulders aswell.

    I am not sure about sewing the shoulders up on the llbean coat..I think it would look a bit strange.

    I had not hear of the Filson brand before so thank you very much for that link..I will probably purchase one of these.

    I love Bean! Did you know that in it was all the way back in 1912 that they first begun offering their classic pieces out of a little barn in Maine? By contrast, JCrew's original name was "Popular Merchandise Club" revealing it's mass market capitalist roots and lack of heritage.
