    Still mulling over sizing for the Sterlingwear, but know that I want to get the Navigator. Any additional help from anyone on how to size this would be awesome.

    Anyways, tried on a J.Crew Medium Bayswater Peacoat today. How's the fit on this? It felt pretty good.

    ^Take in the sleeves, rest looks good.

    Def agree that the sleeves are a tad long. Also bothers me that there's no vent, so for $275 I definitely wouldn't buy this.

    Wasn't planning on purchasing it, just wanted to find one that fit well for comparison purposes. Thanks for the input.

    What do you guys think about this banana republic jacket...

    http://bananarepublic.gap.com:80/bro...scid=768341002

    Not quite a traditional peacoat, but I like how it looks to fit quite slim.


    It is not bad. I tried it on the other week. Just wait until you get a sale e-mail to save on it. It is nice if you do not need a heavy coat. I am getting it for this year.

    Can any competent tailor work on a peacoat?

    I am thinking about making an order from sterlingwear but I am pretty sure I will need the waist taken in after that and I am not sure where to take it (in chicago)


    bump anybody?

    Yes, its possible to get a peacoat altered.

    Look up some tailors near you, call and ask around. See if they're willing/how much experience they have.

    Hey what is your height and weight? I'm 5'11" and a skinny 155 lbs. Not sure if I should get a small or medium in the J. Crew Peacoat. You tried on the navy in that picture? Also not sure to go with navy or black. Mostly wear jeans...would navy make it too monotone with my outfit? Is a vent necessary or anything? How does the quality feel? Is it full wool? I live in Toronto, Canada is thinsulate recommended or would I be fine without it? Thanks!

    I'm like 5'8 and 170. That's Medium in the photo, which seemed to fit me pretty well. Might be a little short/baggy for you.

    That's the black one.

    I like having a vent because I have a big ass and usually when I get a coat without one it's annoyingly restrictive.

    Picked up a Sterlingwear Spec peacoat in 38R. Fit/finish are great!

    For size reference, I'm a 38-39 jacket, 32 waist (39R Brooks Fitzgerald suit jacket size). 5'7", 150 lbs.

    I'd like to know how the waist area fits in the 38 if you don't mind. I think we have the same measurements. I was debating between a 40 and a 38.
    Well the 38L was a bit fitter on the chest and I liked it, but I didn't account for the sleeves (I'm 6' 4") and should've gone 38XL. Will probably just keep the 40L now, done with exchanges because I can't size worth anything.

    Here's a quick fit pic. I'm wearing a t-shirt underneath. With only the t-shirt a 36 would have probably worked, but winters here get pretty damn cold. Layering ftw.
