    Nice look, but the fit of that peacoat just looks off. The cut isn't very flattering IMHO, esp in this pic.

    Please be more detailed. I like the coat on him. I like the lines and the shape it give him.
    The collar doesn't over power him and the silloute is sleek and not overly bulky.
    I bet that coat helps snags him some G-town law school hoes for sure. [​IMG]

    The coat looks fine on him, except for the picture snake quoted. I'm just not crazy about how slim it is compared to the bottom. Too bell-shaped.

    Chinos are being made. They will be finished at the end of January or at the latest first week of Feb.

    While I think having his hands in the hand warmers may not be a true representation of how the pea coat fits naturally, it does create an "A" frame shape on the torso. A "V" shape would provide a more flattering look overall. It seems like the coat begins to flare outwards from the chest down, eliminating the hourglass silhouette, even at a neutral stance. That seems to be the main issue I see from those photos. I do think the collar is pretty cool when fully buttoned up.

    Lol yeah my ex isn't a fan of that^!

    I've had several compliments on it especially regarding the color.

    Regarding the "a" shape, it's def because of the position when I use the hand warmers

    Sorry, I disagree with you. Every picture clearly shows a V down to the natural waist. Aside from his stance, any fitted coat is going to have a "flare" Anything that is not a sack coat is going to taper to the natural waist, and then flare out at the skirt because unless you are deformed or grossly overweight or an anorexic, that's the way your body goes. This is even true of quite short, cropped jackets that hit just below the waist, and this coat is short, but not cropped. I think that the jacket actually looks really good on Random. How old is random anyway? Are you in law school? You look 15.

    Coat looks good. I think that most of the bell-shape comes from his stance.

    I wore mine out yesterday, with only a flannel underneath, and the coat is super warm. The high collar is money too. You def. have to wear this jacket with the collar popped. I got a couple of compliments on the coat, mostly the color. I find myself using the regular pockets as handwarmers, not the upper ones.

    I have been wearing the work pant for a while now with no wash and they feel and look great.
    work pant wearers post some pics.

    I don't have many pea coats left and it's effing cold out so if anyone is looking for a coat check it out/
    We will post more pics later.


    The chino is going into 2nd sample. They will be ready very soon.

    I choose the following colors

    red- great shade washed down looks awesome
    khaki- well i have to
    a olive type green
    a very nice grey
    and a brown
    the factory has my color cards so I will post color pics later.

    Best,
    Mauro
