    3sixteen, APC, and surface to air all have some really nice options.
    Would be hype on a cheaper slim fitting option.

    Spiewak makes a good, slim duffle coat that's pretty cheap – about $160 if you look hard enough.

    +1 on the 3sixteen coat, it's awesome. Definitely the best out of those three.

    For a cheaper option, we've got a good black one from Schott in stock. Nice and slim. I've got some photos - I can post them up later.

    They can fit pretty boxy and I sized down on mine. However, and this should be obvious, keep in mind what you'll be wearing underneath. I often wear a lighter cotton jacket under mine and it gets pretty snug in the back and shoulders.

    I got a great vintage Gloverall off eBay last winter. I like it because it doesn't have the big shiny patches where the toggles attach. I like the bone toggles, too. It looks like this:

    I can't get over how fucking awesome the 3sixteen Duffle is. Honestly if I had the cash I'd go with it in a heartbeat over any of those other options.

    I love duffle coats.

    I have been wearing my Gloverall a lot recently. I had troubles with the fit, I thought it was too boxy, and had sort of given up on it, but now that I wear a down vest under it, it looks much better.
    So far, this combination kept me really warm in Wisconsin weather.

    By the way, if you look at old pictures, English sailors were wearing theirs really big, with a ton of stuff layered underneath.

    I don't like the looks of the 3/16 duffle, gloverall is just so dope in all respects (love the pockets too) but it's a shame they keep making them out of shittier and shittier fabric as time goes on or I'd cop one. They look so dope in a streetwear sense and throwing over a suit if you're into that. I wish they weren't garbage man, need a vintage one with the horn toggles.

    I have been scarred by the misfortune of living in Korea when duffles were popular (as in 60 million people wearing them at once, in the same tiny space), around 8-10 years ago; they were so ubiquitous that everyone here hates them now and they will probably not come back in this country, despite the fact you still see random ones around on people who didn't get the memo.

    It's "3sixteen", and you love their duffle coats. Just admit it.

    here... Our camel duffel coat is crafted of a textured wool body. It features custom leather and wood toggles, a full length zipper closure, a removable hood, quilted shoulders and side-entry flap pockets. The coat is fully lined with satin and has polyfill stitched in for additional warmth. The fully finished interior also features two besom pockets for additional storage. Made in USA.
    Absolutely gorgeous coat. Any word out there on its warmth?
