Get ready for compliments
Let me start by saying this is a fantastic coat. I picked one up directly from the Schott store here in NYC over the weekend and have worn it for 3 days. I must have gotten 5-6 compliments so far. The leather adds a great touch that modernizes the classic peacoat and makes this coat extra unique. The sleeves are made of a nice thick leather that retains the shape of your arm and will shine up after a few wears. My favorite part is the leather under the collar though.

It was between this coat and the 470C for me. The 470C is basically black which wasnt what I was looking for since I already own several other black coats. I wanted something with a bit more attitude but not overly trendy and the DU799 was it. I was initially worried about it not being as warm as the 470C but today it was 20 degrees out and the coat held up nicely with just a thin sweater underneath.

My only gripe is with the pockets. I would have loved if these pocket were the classic higher chest pockets with leather trim instead. I think this adds a nice form to your posture when your hands in your pockets. Not a dealbreaker by ay means but that would have been my only improvement. I tend to keep a lot of stuff in my pockets and dont want to look like I'm smuggling cats.

Lining is a nice solid black and coat is clearly navy blue when under direct light. I was worried it would not look good with brown boots but the two tones work really well.

Great coat, highly recommended.
