    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. http://tinyurl.com/y7sh29 this one is perfect (to me) other than the navy color and the price. http://www.honestforum.com/showthread.php?t=70341 i love the one shown here in this thread but it's most likely not in stores anymore. http://tinyurl.com/t4tu4 something like this would be perfect. http://tinyurl.com/u3r22 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!

    The black H & M one was 129 dollars, and the navy H & M one was 79 dollars.

    i recently picked up a schott navy peacoat at filene's basement for $100. i think they had some charcoals as well. i wear a 44L jacket but the large wasn't fitted enough for me so i tried on the medium. it was perfect; maybe a tad snug up top, but it had a nice fitted look around my midsection. i'd look into it if you have one in your area.

    awesome. i think it will be either this or something from zara(anyone kind enough to check out what peacoats they have?).

    bungeeman, did you perceive the quality to be better for the maldini line(the peacoat specifically) over the usual/regular H&M quality?

    i think zara's quality tops H&M.

    I'm not sure how much that is saying.

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


    Um.

    This is the EXACT freaking coat that I have been looking for.

    I'd be willing to shell out handsomely for this one.

    Blah blah, Zara quality, blah blah be damned.. [​IMG]

    I only saw one navy peacoat at Zara, it was belted, and looked otherwise slim fit but pretty normal, but was $199 I believe. Quality is... decent I guess, won't last a couple years of solid wear IMO.

    really interested in getting this but i'm not sure how slim-fit it is. obviously it won't be as slim as the purple label version but as long as it's on the slim side it will do. anybody familiar with it or tried it on?

    I am a big fan of RL. I like the black one in your link a lot! I wonder how it fits? I'll try stopping by the RL store, and see if I can't try it on. I'll post on the fit.
