A very stylish peacoat from Calvin Klein recently caught my attention, but unfortunately there're some disappointing details. I suppose there's no possibility a tailor could neatly create a rear slit?

A seamstress or a tailor should have no difficulty making a slit for your peacoat. Take a screenshot of what you want and leave it with him/her so there will be an example of what you want.

Is this peacoat too big? Each album has two photos.




36s felt way too tight in the chest and this is a 38s. I think just the shoulders are too big, but I am working out alot so maybe that will help.



I bought it to wear with a sweater though so when I was trying the 36s I could barely button it so I got the 38s. It's a navy issue coat.


I am 5"8, 170lbs. I plan on cutting down to 160lbs and then bulking back to 170-175 working out soon.

@Soharu Get to your final form before investing in expensive clothes. Buying stuff that's tight now in anticipation of a future weight loss rarely works out.
I mean with working out, it's a series of cutting and bulking. I don't think you ever really hit a final form unless you decide to just maintain. You lose weight to look good and show the muscles, but you need to gain weight to increase muscle mass and size. I work out 3 days of the week and plan to most of my life hopefully as I have been for 2 years.

It was a 30$ peacoat though so not too expensive :p However I did get that 38s because it fits now and the 36s was too tight in the chest. I do think it might be a 1/4 too long in each shoulder but it's hard for me to tell because I think it looks okay in the mirror.

Just got the Real McCoys WWII version. Fits TTS with room for a chunky sweater. The 42 is ideal for my 6’2” frame. And, the wool is soft. The quality is

Let's hope this one fits!

@Peacoat - your Fedora Lounge forums/guide helped me confirm that this was in fact a 1966 version. Looks to be in terrific shape!
That one looks really nice. If you have an actual chest measurement of 42", you will have a trim fit. If you have a chest measurement of 40", you should have room for a sweater underneath. I have both size 40s and 42s for different temperatures.

Took a chance on this one. 42s are tough to come by. I'm scared I may be between sizes. Time will tell.

Got my coat. Not a mark on it. Perfect condition and fits great with a shaggy dog sweater! Thanks again @Peacoat

You are certainly welcome. Glad it is a fit with a sweater. Now you need to get a size 40 for a slimmer fit.

No no no. Any slimmer i wouldnt be able to move
I mean for a slimmer fit without a sweater. It isn't always cold enough to layer a sweater. Tomorrow the high here is forecast to be 26. I may layer a vest under a size 42 if I wear a peacoat. Today was 30 with sun. No need for a sweater or vest so I wore a size 40.
