    How long is too long? It's way past my butt.

    Way too big for you.

    thats pretty big.

    normally its not longer than a suit jacket.
    sometimes its even shorter than a suit.

    thanks for that, it's big but not huge, like a son wearing daddy's coat.

    You have a 37" chest? what about shoulders?
    would you say it's a muscular built or thin?

    thanks for giving me a reference point!

    Hello! This is my first post on Style Forum and I was hoping to get some advice on my recent purchase: size 42 pea coat from my semi-local military surplus store. It feels a little big around my abdomen, but otherwise alright everywhere else. I'm 6'3" and 175#, so it's a bit hard to find things that have a good fit. What adjustments do I need to have made and what's the best way to find a tailor in my region (SE Wyoming).

    It's huge around the torso in general for sure, your swimming in it!

    The shoulders look okay, but it's hard to tell, because the fit is very off.
    As long as the shoulder pads on the Peacoat fall over your natural shoulders it should be okay.



    Looks from the pictures that you'll have to get the waist suppressed significantly.
    I also think you'd benefit from taking it in at the chest.

    If you are happy with the way the shoulders fit, your best bet is to get a professional tailor's advice.

    Asking friends/family is best or try yelp.com and the like online.
    Maybe even this forum has advice.

    i.e. there is a thread named: "Good tailor in Vancouver?" helped me a lot.

    Yeah you're right about the way it looks.

    Um I guess I'd say it's a muscular build (not saying I'm swoll or anything haha). And my shoulders are 18".

    I'd take a lot of the waste in and it'll improve the look big time.

    Need advice- read through entire thread and haven't seen my measurements so here it goes:
    muscular build
    42" chest
    185 lbs
    33" waist

    I was thinking 40R. Should I size down to 38 as my waist is disproportionately small to my upper bod.

    Decided to go for a Temple of Jawnz Peacoat. Love the great construction and high quality source materials. Also has a slim fit style and overall very nice details that stand out. I want the LODEN GREEN color Peacoat. Only thing is I'm not sure how green it is and I only want a hint of green. Anyone have any fit pics or color accurate pics to ease my concerns? I want this Pea to be matchable and versatile with any number of outfits I have. Thanks! -R.

    Pretty sure the color in the swatch pic is accurate: [​IMG] Honestly, its a pretty neutral color. Unless you wear fluorescent houndstooth pants or something I think you'll be fine. EDIT: Drew *did* say fairly recently that he was not going to offer the peacoat this year in loden green, though.

    Both are nice. I like the more tapered fit on the second one (the blue one on the right).

    What are they/how much/where to get?

    Hi everyone, following the advice of many in this thread, I decided to take a trip to the local surplus store. Unfortunately, sizing was pretty limited... however, I did find a Neil Cooper USA peacoat that fit me pretty well. Does anybody have any comments on the quality of these peacoats or Neil Cooper jackets in general? Couldn't find too much info online.
