I don't have firsthand experience, but it looks like it depends on which side of your usual size you sit on based on these measurements. I sit at the bigger end of L so I would go for the XL here, but if you are on the smaller end for your standard choice I'd go TTS.What's the sizing like in King Louie? TTS or size up?

That is exactly what it is I believe! Yeah shame about the reversibility, but this is probably the greatest piece of game-related clothing AND for one of the greatest games of all time—you can't go wrong.Oh shit, this is literally my favorite game and I own both the english version and all the Japanese variants.
Although it looks like it's not reversible which is kinda lame. I would get it otherwise. It does look to be the special edition that was given only staff and related people upon release of the game.
Yeah the blockiness is def part and parcel, I feel like a fridge when I wear mine. Not a bad thing necessarily, but I have to gravitate toward heavy, chunky pants, shoes, and tops with it, anything fitted or streamlined just won't match up.I thrifted a pea coat once, and just found it overall too blocky and short for me, I like long dramatic military coats. For that reason I own an M51 and M47. It doesn’t look bad but it definitely has a pretty standard and safe look to me.
Ahhh love it man, the real thing. Yeah I totally get you, I just realized that since I mostly ride crowded NY public transit (or used to) I prioritize jackets I can sit down in relatively easily without taking them off or dragging through doodoo water. MA-1 is great for that. Can't count the number of times I've let a longer coat hang off of a chair and soak up a half pint of mystery fluid from a bar floor. That said, I did get a very long balmacaan for this season, so I'll be finding out if I'm warming to the style / how absorbent it is in the near future.I wear a lot of oversized clothing too, but that’s why I prefer to flow and have some drape, I usually take my jackets off to sit down unless in public transit or in a car which I find longer coats nicer since short coats can ride up especially with how stiff pea coats can be. Although I’ll give you that, big collars are fucking boss and I have a military motorcycle dispatch coat with a huge collar too.
It’s all vintage militaría, I like that sort of crap. I generally wear my parkas pretty randomly, I feel like they look good with anything since they are oversized. Turtle necks with flannel thrown on top, some wide jeans, and some sneakers or lowtop shoes. That’s what I wore today with my m51
I own the Buzz Rickson pea coat and have worn it consistently through the winter for 4-5 years now. I love it to death.Anyone have any experience with Buzz pea coats? I was never super excited about them based on most product shots, but seeing it in action on Self Edge's Instagram makes it look much more appealing.
I have a grey Schott 740 N pea coat I really like, but it's a bit oversized and wears very warm. This looks a little more Fall vs Winter based on the thickness, curious if anyone's taken one for a spin and has any impressions.
On a side note, I feel like pea coats have really fallen by the wayside in the last 5 years. I feel like it used to be defacto outerwear this time of year, but now I don't think I've even seen one out in the wild this season. Did the style just get oversaturated, or has everyone switched to down now? Where are the melton wools of yesteryear???
