    10 buttons as per the site. It is 20% nylon though. Looks like a slim fit.

    King, whats your height and weight? Does it still fit without being tight with a sweater underneath as it seems you're wearing a tee in that picture.

    Also, is it made in China?


    I'm 5'9" about 145 lbs. I was wearing a tee in that picture and the only place it was a little snug was in the chest. I don't see wearing a sweater being a problem, though. And yep, it is made in China [​IMG]

    This guy looks cool in his coat i think, especially the navy one. It must be the smallest size available as it looks very fitted. I wonder what coat it is he is wearing?
    Looks much better on the oriental guy than this guy anyway.

    I am also wondering...its the 6-button but I have never seen that light gray color (and none of their real models wear them sized like that)

    Why not authentic?[​IMG]

    Pretty sure those two are identical except for the lining.

    He is probably right about the navigator though as it is some Japanese guy modeling them on what seems to be a grab from some fancy japanese web-store--it is probably the one with the fancy schmancy satin lining.

    On that note: does anyone know what the satin lining is made with? I doubt it is a silk satin but maybe?

    I was going off of what was found here: http://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/jalana...ize/index.html after translating, the pic next to the grey sterlingwear says its covered with a "smooth satin lining" so i assumed its the navigator. however when scrolling down its saying M21 is the authentic so now i'm not sure whichever is shown in the pic is pretty fitted and I'm not sure the authentic would have such a trim look considering its fleece lined.

    This is what is frustrating. Why dont the advert just tell us what actual coat it is advertising? Too many choices to choose from as well. THey should have a classic genuine US NAvy peacoat and leave it at that.
    Too many choices isnt always a good thing.

    The J.Crew and the new GAP peacoat are all I've found in medium tall - If any tall skinny guys need a fit pic when this one comes just holler.
    Got my J.Crew today and I'm real happy with it. The shoulders fit great and it's a decently trim fit. I'm 6'4" 165. It fits almost exactly like the photo but does not have the lines going down the back, which I think is better. Sleeves are a little loose and I could use a half inch more or so in length but with a few layers and gloves on it won't be a problem. Can anyone give an insight to the tab on the collar that "flips up and fastens for windshield"?? I don't know where it fastens. [​IMG] Looking forward to wearing it but it was 70 degrees in the midwest today.

    Hey all. I've lurked on this forum for a while and read like half of the pages in this thread. Just wondering what you guys thought about the coats below. They're the J Crew small and medium (I've also included a picture of me in sweater and jeans for comparison...they're just random clothes I got at the store for the fitting room since it's really warm in Chicago today and I didn't have any sweaters with me.)

    The small's in navy, the medium in charcoal (it's what was in the store) and as for the buttoning, I figure the time when this coat is the most important is when it's frigid and windy outside and at that point I'll probably be buttoning them all regardless. There's two pictures of the small.

    I'm 5'10", 160, 38" chest usually.

    Thanks guys!

    So here's the deal. I believe the pea coat that they're selling in the store is the model from last year, called the "Bayswater". If you look closely on the J. Crew website they say that the "Authentic" [Read: The one with the lines/darting? down the back] is an online/catalog order only.

    There should be a smaller button on the under side of the of the collar, when the collar's folded down, on the left side of the coat for this tab to fasten to.

    Weird, they almost look the same to me. Size Medium looks more comfy, seems to be a bit of pulling in the chest for the size small.

    Is this true? It doesn't have that 'Catalog/jcrew.com only' sign in the website. (althought one without thinsulate says so at the end of its description.)

    I had a large peacoat from the store and a large from online and they were exactly the same.
