    Anyone know where a good duffel coat can be found? What are your thoughts on them this season?

    yeah, i'm looking for one too. hood + longer length makes them > peacoat for me. I'll assume you mean something in a nice heavy wool and not just some lightweight "toggle coat".

    APC and Hickey had versions. Both have been on sale recently, but only in black as far as I know. I would greatly prefer grey or camel, maybe even blue.
    APC retailed for ~600 & ~1300 for Hickey.

    Also, no real clue on sizing. I'm sure it varies brand-to-brand, but I know the classic Gloverall's are huge.

    Yeah I'd like a thick wool one. I just see too many pea coats, I wanted something a bit different.

    Fine for now, but come end of next year you'll be asking yourself what the hell you were thinking.

    I like the MHL and Nigel Cabourn Duffel Coats...not sure if they'd be something I'd wear though!

    I have FS a like new, Size 42, 1960's vintage duffle coat from Brooks Brothers. Camel color, zipper w/toggles, detachable hood, plaid tartan lining. It must weigh 10 lbs. I will part with this coat because I own a navy one just like it. PM me if your interested.

    Sierra Trading Post had an enormous run of Gloverall duffles at the start of the fall.

    Get a Junya x Gloverall if you're ballin' (although I prefer last year's to the current one).

    ^ As I'm not, picked up an old RRL duffel on eBay recently.
