Peacoat Fit

I bought this peacoat the other day and when I got home, a few of my friends told me that it doesn't fit correctly because it breaks in the back. However, I came across the same coat on ......... and in the picture taken from behind, the coat breaks on the model as well. I was just wondering if this is how it is supposed to fit?

Here's a link (check out the picture from behind, that's pretty much how mine breaks in the back): http://www...........com/products.as...VendorCode=SPI

The guy in the link seems to be pulling the jacket forward by having his hands in the coat pockets. If your jacket pulls like that in the back, then it may be too tight. Your friends might be on to something.

It looks as if it was made that way, which frankly looks a little silly to me, but it doesn't mean it doesn't fit you.

I got a sized down sterlingwear today and also have the rear vent issue. It's coming from it being slightly too tight in the hips(widest part) which extends about a 1/4 of the way down the vent. This is causing the entire vent to gap open at times, not as drastically as shown in the link, but still a noticeable gap.

The rest of the coat fits me fairly well so I'm going to try and stitch the top 1/4 of the vent together tomorrow and see if that helps or solves my problem.

I think a vent issue on otherwise properly sized peacoat is better then a flush vent on an otherwise too large all around coat.
