Peacoats

I saw the picture of the attached peacoat on a second-hand clothes website and rather liked it. Unfortunately, someone else bought it before me, so I was wondering if anyone had seen something similar to it elsewhere?

I think the main reason I like is because it has quite a small collar and an elegantly rolling lapel. Most peacoats seem to have a huge collar and lapels which just fold out of the front. I also quite like the way in which it has 6 buttons, quite closely arranged (both horizontally and vertically) with quite a big gap between the top button and where the lapel starts to roll out.

Not being able to find a similar one doesn't really surprise me since having a big collar and wide buttons seems to be the archetypal feature of a peacoat, along with a rather military fit! However, I was wondering if anyone else had seen some more "civilian" style ones around and could point me in that direction?

Many thanks!
