    sterling has better than a retail store selection.
    they have.
    4 double breasted models. one is regulation navy.
    3 have extra insulated linings.
    they come in 6 colors.
    15 numbered sizes. not s m l xl.
    4 different lengths.

    and they have other styles besides pea coats.

    How many buttons does the sterlingwear peacoat have under the collar? In this pic of another peacoat (not sterlingwear) there are two, but I only have one on mine, is that right?


    I have 1 button under the collar and it is on the right hand side.

    Anyone else think the sterlingwear pit to pit (on the back) is a bit constricting? When I drive and both my hands are up, the back is very tight.

    Shameless plug: I'm selling a size 38 1968 peacoat that I just bought from VintageTrends. This thing is great but I guess I didn't pay enough attention to Peacoat because this is a full size too big. I've already purchased a size 36, it's getting cold here and I don't want to exchange it because of the wait.

    What is your measured chest size?

    Sterlingwear has one. http://www.sterlingwear.com/cart/ind...id=23&parent=1
    Thanks for the quick and accurate response. I've also seen the JCrew University coat, but they are out of slim fits in charcoal. I am looking for a charcoal coat, if it's out there...

    So apparently Sterlingwear doesn't answer emails? This is the second one I sent in two weeks, do I have to spam them in order to get their attention? What is going on with this company? Do they have a toll free number?

    If your posts here are any indication of what your emails to them are like I wouldn't be suprised if they are ignoring you.

    There's a big dfifference between asking:

    1. I'm interested in the Navigator. What size would you recommend for these measurements....?

    vs.

    2. So, let's say I'm walking down the street and carrying a bag of groceries and I stop to chat with a nice looking girl. Should I unbutton my Sterlingwear and sit or should I leave it buttoned and keep standing with my right hand in the pocket and left on the bag of groceries? Also, is the left pocket big enough for a pair of numchucks?

    What do you guys think of a vintage one, found a nice one from 1973 Pembroke melton wool, would you buy this or go new.

    May be somebody can answer a few questions:
    1. Would thIs be 100% wool or some sort nylon/wool fabric?
    2. If wool would it be a tight weave, would it stop some wind and rain? 24 vs 32 oz?
    3. I'm 40R (5'10" 155# athletic build w 32-31 waist) for reg jackets, should I stay true to size since it's vintage or go down to a 38R for a snug fit (not constricting though)?

    Thanks in advance!!

    The vintage pea coats are 100% wool that is of thicker material and are weave denser. I believe from Peacoat's article on Fedora Lounge that anything after late 70s/early 80s will be made from looser weave wool. I have a 39" chest and just won a 1970 Pembroke 38R made from kersey wool on Ebay so I'm hoping it will be nice and slim. If not, you will probably see it in the marketplace. [​IMG]
