    I tried it on with a flannel and tshirt and it was a bit tight but nothing to be worried about. I could fit a sweater underneath if I wanted, although I don't even own any atm

    You could always have taken a Jcrew sweater and tried the peacoat with it on.
    They shouldn't mind haha.

    Any opinions on this? I really like the way the lines of the coat 'flow' if that makes any sense. Im not really a fan of the Sterlingwear pea coats. It'd be great if any of you guys who have this can chime in, as Ive done a search and nothing has come up.

    I've been eye'ing that Schott 740c as well. Here are some images as Schott's own images are quite lacking.

    You ought to be able to find what you want in the link below. I believe you will want the 40 ligne size.

    [Edit Note: OK, here is the link. I left it out first time around.]

    HAHA so here I go again back to the J.Crew coat. I received the Sterlingwear peacoat in the mail yesterday, but aside from this one being too large it's just a little blocky for my liking. The shoulders are so square and it's just straight down on the sides. The sleeves are also too large/long on me, should've went with a short and maybe another size down.

    I could probably get it tailored if I exchanged this for a smaller size, but the J.Crew coat fit me like a glove and so I think I'm just going to go to the store tomorrow and purchase that one and then just return this Sterlingwear for a refund.

    The 30% off on the J.Crew puts it in my price range - only $40 more than I paid for the Sterlingwear, which I would have had to pay to get altered anyways (plus any shipping charges if I would have again had to send in for another exchange). So it just makes sense to get the J.Crew and return this one. Here are some crappy iPhotos:

    Sterlingwear 38R:

    J.Crew Small:

    I think it's quite obvious which one looks better, even if I got the Sterlingwear tailored.


    I think the top pic looks better, it must be the lapels. Im assuming thats the sterlingwear and if it was the right size, well that would have been a bonus. Bigger looking buttons as well it seems, which screams sailors coat to me and a bit more rustic and earthy looking. Is it authentic or navigator style?

    Too prim and proper the bottom one..

    I think that looks pretty damn good. Thanks for posting pics.

    That looks awful. What's with the giant seam on the outside?

    Bought the J.Crew today, on sale for $200 in store. Returning the Sterlingwear on Monday. I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase, this thing fits like a glove and it is warm! I could fit an undershirt, a button up and a scarf underneath; it's a bit snug but nothing to be worried about.

    Unless you have unusually long arms the XS will fit better there. Probably the chest and shoulders will be the one problem with going XS, and if you don't mind a little extra length in the body you could buy the Small and have the arms taken up. This is the problem with S-M-L sizing. You really need a 34S or 36S.

    I just chose the J Crew Peacoat- Tall with Thinsulate lining- over the Sterlingwear Navigator or Mariner. I paid $205 with the 30% discount, whereas it was regular-priced at $295. Not a killer deal, but I don't foresee them offering a better discount until after the season. So why the J Crew over the Sterlingwear???
    1. I could try on the medium-regular in a local brick & mortar, then order the medium-Tall.
    2. Free shipping
    3. No return shipping charge- returnable to any nearby brick & mortar
    4. More tailored, less bulky fit- I'm sick of huge outerwear.
    Yes, that's right. Free to-doorstep shipping and return shipping were big factors. Would've been about $13 to get my hands on the Sterlingwear and probably another $13 to get it back to them if it didn't work out. That's would've been $26 for a trial & error exercise. If only Sterlingwear had a store or sold through a retailer anywhere in the SF Bay Area, I would've tried on at least one size. Then they could've competed with J Crew and others. But, no.

    Thanks for the response. Unfortunatly, im in canada and sterlingwear does not seem to ship/sell to canada in my knowledge. From looking at this thread J.Crew and Sterlingwear are the most popular.

    XS seems to be the best size at this point.

    you sure? I'm from Europe, asked them a few months ago if they ship internationally and about the shipping costs. Back then, their friendly costumerservice lady explained to me that when the time comes, I should place the order through mailing/calling her, so they're able to provide a cheaper shipping option.. Sterlingwear thereupon added this option (USPS) a bit later in their online store checkout, to make international orders easier...
