    It didn't fit as well as people online said (kind of boxy in my opinion) and the material was very itchy.
    That is the nature of the peacoat beast.

    A little OT, but I was thinking about getting the JCrew peacoat because its seems like pretty good material/warmth and I can get it for 30% off (friend works there). However, I want a more fitted coat. How hard/expensive would it be to turn the straight/boxy peacoat into a more fitted coat?

    Saw the new cloak peacoat at hollywood trading company this past weekend, definitel a nice piece. I think Scott over there is offering a little discount too, on brand new merchandise that's unheard of. It is gorgeous.

    If I remember right, the Cloak peacoat was about $1100 on sale....the W&H peacoat was around $300+

    i tried on the cloak peacoat while in manhattan a few weeks back just for shits and giggles but it was absolutely the best coat, with the best fit, with the best construction i've ever had the opportunity to try on. for the $1500 asking price i quickly walked away but when i saw that HTC was offering it for $1100 i started to think crazy thoughts. i'm still trying to find a slim fitted, mid thigh peacoat that has a subtle bells and whistles to jet it apart from the standard issue model. under a grand would be nice. *sigh*

    I bought a peacoat from H&M, but not that one. I tried on the one pictured, but didn't like it- too stiff and way too busy for me. It has all this odd detailing on the back, and it's not slim fitting. The one I bought IS a slim fit, has a great modernized wide collar, soft fabric (for a peacoat), and is still a *basic* looking peacoat. It's the L.O.G.G. version, and it was only $70, I love it!! Tried on 4 other peacoats (elsewhere) that were more expensive, but i honestly like this one better.

    Thats the one i got. It seems H+M have a few different versions but the LOGG one is the nicest. Mine hits mid thigh and has no "fussy" detailing on it which i like

    how much is the H&M maldini peacoat and does it come in grey?

    what about zara? does anybody know what peacoats they have currently?

    i'm looking for a classic, grey, slim-fitting peacoat. budget: $200-$250 thanks.

    this one is perfect (to me) other than the navy color and the price.

    i love the one shown here in this thread but it's most likely not in stores anymore.

    something like this would be perfect.

    this one is nice too but it looks like it might still be a little boxy for me.

    i'm 5'11" and 135 lbs.

    That first pea coat is alittle expensive. The second one is sold I think. I don't think you can get the inapt ones anymore, and they are pretty thin from what I have read. I don't know if that matters to you. I tried on the J. Crew one. It is boxy, and the small was not small enough. I tried on one at H & M. I am not sure if it is the one you are talking about, but that one fit a lot better than the J. Crew one, but it was black, and I didn't see any grey ones. They do have a navy blue one though, and that fit good too. I ended up buying an oxford grey Sterlingwear pea coat. You can see it here http://styleforum.net/showthread.php...hlight=peacoat and here http://sterlingwear.com/ The pea coats from Schott seem good too. You can see those here http://www.rakuten.ne.jp/gold/jalana...t/740size.html and here http://www.schottnyc.com/index.cfm Hope this helps!
