what do you guys think of this car coat? It's from Schott... never heard of the brand 'til recently but I really like the look style. Do they run large or small? I'm a 42R in Hugo Boss, and usually get that tailored down in the waist.



Oxford Grey or Black.

I had one of their leather jackets and they were quite fitted, probably a size smaller than other jackets I own. I like the gray jacket there and think it's more versatile than black

How is the brand quality wise compared to something like J. Crew University coat?

I can't speak for this specific coat, but I purchased Schott's duffle coat in oxford grey last week.

First, the color is a little darker in person than in their photos if you're looking for a dark coat. The oxford grey is definitely more versatile.

Second, the fit is true to size and slim fitting. I'm a 40, ordered the medium, and I don't have much wiggle room with a heavy sweater on. Sizing down would definitely be too small for you. Their large is for 42-44 so you should have a bit more room to layer than I do.

Construction and materials are great. I don't have any experience with the JC University Coat, but Schott is above my general impression of JC quality.
