I guess if I had to choose, i'd say the one from Urban Outfitters, but I don't like either one. Peacoats should generally be dark colors.

Well...the UO is way too loud and "look at me!!!!!" which I guess goes totally in line with most of UO. The fit looks good to me but those colors are way too trying.

The express one is much more subdued but I would never pay that much for something from there. Aside from their sweater vests which can be found on sale for $25, that store is full of overpriced garbage.

I would refrain from either and save the money. You can do much better at that price-point. ESPECIALLY right after Christmas. You may even get Banana Republic or Brooks Bros for the same dollar. Hold out a few days and hit the after Christmas sales. I'm pretty confident you'll find something fantastic for the amount you're willing to part with.

yea the polo pea coat was $150 on sale at dillards, of all places. unfortunately they only had large + sizes left. its a very generous fit, so you should size down, unless you do serious layering

#2. i dont like #8, i dont like that style, especially the way all 8 buttons are in the front and aligned like that, as if you were wearing some bullet proof vest or something else robocop would wear. i like the quality of #2 and i also like the color. but i wouldnt pop the collar up like that model did, that is way too cliche these days.
