    I actually very much like the white stripes, contrary to what ZacharyD might have presumed.

    hey man, how was I to know you liked them? if you really want people to know you like them, you need to write about them a lot on myspace. did you see their Nylon cover?

    I did, and was tempted to buy said magazine until i realized nylon is an intelligent girls cosmo.

    so instead i bought the NME with a free 7', HARP, and might pick up this other magazine I saw at barnes on monday

    but about the buttons, i went to a fabric store, and walmart,and michaels, no effing dice

    The White Stripes tend to be a fashion-conscious musical group.
    I think their simplicity is what speaks volumes to me with regards to their fashion. Jack White is the only man I know who can make Hagar pants look awesome.
    and goddamn if he doesn't know his way around a bedazzler. (Before becoming a big star, he used to own a furniture upholstry shop you know) [​IMG]

    they make smaller (32R and possibly smaller) navy issue peacoats. If you have access to an army/navy surplus store nab the best fitting one and have alterations made if all you are wanting is a black/blue peacoat.

    If you are looking for a slimmer fitting one, your least expensive option is to pick up one from the womans section of any major department store over the next few months. I have several smaller framed friends who bought ladies peacoats last fall and were quite pleased with the look and fit.

    If you are looking to drop some serious $$$ (or atleast serious imo) Calvin Klein has some very nice peacoats and trenches.

    any places online? I was thinking BB or RL, but they haven't put up winter wear yet...I guess I might go troll some department stores...I saw one in TopMan when I was in London last week and it fit me perfectly but I just couldn't pull the trigger on it =\\ bleah.

    I'm interested in responses as well, just because i'm looking for a peacoat for fall. Not all brands/stores have put out the f/w stuff yet though. I liked the look of the corpus one from their lookbook.

    April 77 would probably work for shorter stuff. Their stuff is unisex and in the peacoat thread from back in april/may there was a cropped peacoat that was discussed that might look normal on a person of your stature. I don't know how all the sizing and proportions work though.

    if you know someone in the navy, he can buy one for you from the ships stores.
    thats like the army post exchange, prices are reasonable and good quality.
    i think their sizes start 32 or 34 and go way up there. also short,reg, and longs.
