    1970 Pembroke 38R came in today. So thick and heavy. For ~$68 I'm not gonna complain. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Looks like a good fit. As I remember your chest size is a 38? So you will have room underneath for a sweater--most important when the temps get in the 20s and below.

    39" chest actually, but beneath I have on a t-shirt, long sleeve thermal, and that flannel on and I still have full movement while it sits slim on the torso.

    Anybody own a J.Crew peacoat coat with thinsulate? I'm looking to buy a peacoat that will keep me warm during the blistering cold winter of the northeast and was wondering if thinsulate will do the trick. I ask cause I really hate the look of bubble jackets.

    Right now, J Crew has a 30% coupon which would bring the J Crew Thinsulate Peacoat or University Coat within $200 incl shipping.

    Can the University Coat be waist-suppressed if it has a Thinsulate lining?

    How much "better" is the Sterlingwear Mariner or Navigator Peacoats than the JCrew Thinsulate models? Which would be warmer?

    How warm are peacoats suppose to be? Yesterday night was about 1 degree celcius (or 34 degrees F) and it was a bit chilly wearing my peacoat. I had on an undershirt and a long sleeve T-shirt with my peacoat. I am confused because some people here say their peacoats keep them warm. I was under the impression I could wear a t shirt (I don't like to layer clothes) and still be warm when it gets sub zero [maybe -10C] which would be great.

    Layers are your friend mate.

    People who say it keeps them warm are probably comitted to a little bit of layering (it is winter you know)

    The room between your t-shirt and peacoat circulates cold air. That is why people layer to keep the warmth in.

    Mine has thinsulate. It has been in the single digits farenheit with strong winds here and I've stayed plenty warm with a sweater underneath. I think you will be fine with the collar popped and a scarf.

    I find if I put the collar up like this and button it closed around my neck, the wind won't get in and the coat will be warmer, but is the peacoat suppose to be worn like this? it looks strange (look, there is another guy behind the first) [​IMG]

    ^^ Personally I think it looks great worn like that as well as with the collar down. The reason why it has such a big collar was b/c when it was cold, the guys in the service would wear it that way to keep their neck warm. Win Win either way IMO.
