Hi,
I have fallen in love with the following coats (let's call them "long" and "short"):
1.Wool-Cashmere Trench Coat (RL Black Label)
2.Academy Wool Pea Coat (RL Polo)

Unfortunately, they are no longer available in my size anywhere - I've asked for a survey of all RL stores in US - the shop assistant couldn't find any. I am not aware of non-RL stores selling them but travelling to all shopping centres/malls would be quite difficult.

So, my question is:
Do you know coats similar to these? What I particularly like about them is the high collar and relatively "slim" cut. I also like the style of the long coat a lot. They both must be double breasted.

I would really appreciate both:
->suggestions how to track down these Ralph Lauren coats (my real size is 36, but with coats I usually take 38)
->recommendations of other brands/producers making similar coats.

Thank you A LOT for your help!

Best regards,
Theriel

OK, maybe an easier question:
Where in NYC can I buy Ralph Lauren except for their own stores? I.e. I am looking for a place outside of the system to which RL has access... in hope that there might be still some coat.

Any of the department stores?

One is a pretty standard wool trench coat, and the other is a classic pea coat. I don't think you'd have much trouble finding either; they're classics, and almost any menswear brand worth its salt will sell both cum winter. Just shop around for a Trench Coat/Pea Coat in a size 38/M/48(eu). The high collar is just a classic trench collar that's been turned up at the back. If neither fits as slimly as you'd like, you can have it tailored; coats can be tailored. Your big trouble isn't likely to be finding a coat because of rarity, but because most stores would be replacing their winter stock with spring and summer items. Maybe you should change your search now to "I'm looking for a trench coat or pea coat in a size 38 for winter, preferably in X colour - what would SF recommend?"
