    Few sterlingwear Q's I was thinking about ordering 2 sizes and sending one to the tailor and returning the other. I am almost 6'2 and usually wear a 40-42 jacket. I was thinking about ordering both the 40L and the 42L but maybe I should go 38L, 40L? As for material, do I want wool or wool/nylon blend? You can go 100% wool with satin lining but I think I might prefer the fleece lining--does anyone have pics of the inside lining of the authentic and the navigator? Finally, any opinions on the navy and/or gray coats versus the black? I have a dark charcoal overcoat so I was thinking maybe go navy but would it be less versatile? (and you can only get black in 100% wool)
    Authentic: [​IMG] Navigator: [​IMG] I would order 36L and 38L! TyC

    Looks nice and classic. The buttons go quite high dont they, and the lapels are quite high up as well it looks?
    Is that a US Navy authentic one?

    But it looks very fitted and shorter than i imagine sterling peacoats to look. But its all good. Buttons are nice and big as well.

    I ended up picking up a navy J. Crew Authentic peacoat in a size small at my local shop. It was listed at $275, then there was a $77 discount along with 25% which left me at $148.50 before sales tax. Not too bad. Oh, when I got home I discovered that it was the thinsulate model. (I suspected as much from the list price, but I didn't see the non-thinsulate model in the shop. And nothing bad about having a warmer coat.)

    edit: Grad school keeps me overworked and underfed and means I don't get to go to the gym nearly as much as I like: 6' ~150 lbs

    Looking for a True Slim Navy Blue Peatcoat below $200. As a matter of fact even black or Charcoal will have to do. Any suggestions?
