    I recently bought Pembroke Pea Coat and was able to find one in new shape from the late 60's. Anyways it still has chalk inside on the lining and has the soldiers name chalked or written on the back. All I want to do is get the writing off of the back. Does anyone have any tips on how to do this safely? ~Derek

    How long should the body of a peacoat be?

    Actually, it's better for me to ask it this way:
    What makes a peacoat too short? What makes a peacoat too long?

    Classically, they were long enough to cover part/all of your butt and keep you warm. Anything longer than that really isn't a pea coat and is more in the style of a bridge coat. Nowadays there are short, cropped versions. It's all personal taste, but I prefer mine to cover my butt.

    any ideas?

    Is it just me, or is Pitt starting to resemble a thinner, better looking Capt. Lou Albano with the goatee? He just needs to harness it with a rubber band. And that's his brother walking behind him. I don't care how high your self esteem is, it must suck being Pitt's brother.

    LOL.

    Some fit pics of my Sterlingwear

    Coat is Sterlingwear Authentic Black 36R. I'm a 38 jacket, 5'11, and ~160. Everything is great except the sleeves feel a bit short, I think I'll try a 36L. I've got longish arms and always take 34/35" shirt sleeves. I guess I'd recommend Regular to regular armed people, if you get shirts 32/33". The size down one recommendations are spot on: slim but not tight. Not too much room for layering, but this is for bay area weather so it's not a big deal.

    ^^ Would it be possible for a tailor to let out the sleeves? Or isn't there enough material?

    brown and black typically do not look good together, though i think something like brown footwear, brown top, black jeans, maybe black coat would look good...

    RLBL does this all the time

    I got this Pendleton pea coat last year, but never really wore it. I think I need to have it "taken in" but I'm not really sure. Thoughts? Anyone know who could do this, and the cost in the Boston area? It's a beautiful coat, 100% wool and super heavy weight (I get hot wearing a T shirt on under it). I'd hate to not be able to use it (and have it fit nicely).

    I wear a 34/35 shirt and went the long route as well. Don't be shocked if you need a tailor to pull it up about an inch in the sleeves once you make the change.

    Grey Banana Republic peacoat: Anyone tried this on or bought one? None of the local shops have it and as I'm obviously not going to pay full retail for it, I want to ensure the fit's spot-on (or as reasonably close as I can get to it) if I order it. Another note, if this coat's completely rubbish, can someone recommend a simliar grey peacoat that's at or below the same price-point? This seems to be precisely the coat I've been trying to track down, though I'd prefer grey herringbone to solid grey wool. [​IMG] http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse...scid=702695002

    Bump for fit advice.

    You need to post a full pic. Definitely looks like it needs to be taken in. Any tailor can do it. If you don't know one, ask around for a reputable one.

    Hi guys. First post here...I just bought this peacoat and though I think it's growing on me, I don't like it as much as I thought I would and I'm having a little buyer's remorse. (This might be because I'm not used to wearing good looking clothing). I'd like to become more fashion conscious, and this is coat is my first adventure- I got excited and may have bought this too quickly.

    Anyway, I think if I either get this coat tailored or wear it with the right scarf, I'll really enjoy it. So first, does this fit well? I think it may benefit from bringing the sides in a bit, but I'm not really sure. Secondly, what type of scarf goes would go well with this peacoat? Something thin, thick, long, short, plaid, striped? I'm pretty new at this stuff. Thanks!
