The J. Peterman catalogue used to carry what they claimed, was the real thing. I bought one, back in 1993. It ran small. It was HEAVY. It was WARM. I wore that thing, out. However, every piece of lint known to man, stuck to the fabric. The wool did not feel good against the skin. The jacket that I owned, indented toward the waist. Newer versions are boxier, or more wedge shaped. For most of us, the 'new' peacoat, is easier to wear. I don't find them to be effeminate. I do think a peacoat is dashing, and classic. Where to find, the 'new' and improved, peacoat? Well, if you're not put off by JCREW, they always have a peacoat, in fall and winter. I've seen peacoats at department stores, as well.
