be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I've had this jacket for about 4 years. My true chest size is about 38.5", 165 lbs and 5'-9" tall. The 38 was a bit too wide in the shoulder, chest and sleeves. The 36 is perfect with a LS shirt underneath, but given the fabric thickness, thicker sweaters push the mobility issue, so I strictly use this jacket with thin layers under.
Craftsmanship is impeccable. Four years and still going strong!
This Schott jacket is exceptionally smart looking with leather trim accent & the superb quality of Schott craftsmanship.
Excellent Quality and Service
I waited forever to pull the trigger on this. I didn’t know much about Schott but their name came up multiple times when I would talk to designers or search online for modern men’s peacoats. After doing some research and reading countless reviews, I decided this was worth the money. And yes, the price tagr is hefty for some people. You can buy a pea coat for 1/3 this at Macy’s. But it wil NOT be as well made. I can assure you it will NOT have the same cut and fit the seamless way this one does. And lastly, when you go cheap, you get what you pay for. This is something of an heirloom. You will own this coat for season after season and it will get better. I absolutely love it. It fits like a velvet glove and I get constant compliments from both men and women. It’s VERY warm but breathes. I am so happy with my purchase. I feel as though the price tag was well worth it.
So if you’re looking for a modern classic that will have you standing out in a sea of bland pea coats this season, this is the coat you’ve been searching for.
I subscribe to the belief that a company's longevity speaks for itself. Schott has been around for a very long time. The reviews speak for themselves. I also believe that you get what you pay for. You could go to a big box store and pay $99 for a pea coat, sure, but its going to be a mass produced, inferior fabric, and it will last about a season or two. Then you're buying new one a couple of years later. Or you could pay for a well made American product, made by hand by a family run company that has a personal touch. You could go with a Schott and be done for decades. I look at this coat like an heirloom. I will pass this one down. With that out of the way, like most of the reviewers here, I ordered a size up and wow! Its an absolute perfect fit. Clean lines and slim. I get compliments from both men and women on the coat. It feels fantastic. Like slipping on a velvet glove. Its still a little stiff, but I still have some breaking in to do.
I really wanted this to be a nice coat. Schott typically comes up as being high quality with internet searches. I'm 6'2" and 210 lbs. I train a few times a week but am proportionate throughout my build, not top heavy. I ordered the 46 as per Schott's recommendation. My chest measurement is 45" circumference. If I were to move down a size, the arms would most certainly be too tight. The wool was very thick, but worse, very stiff. Not soft and movable. My freedom of movement was noticeably restricted as opposed to other wool coats I own. The arm size was good, not baggy, but not too tight..., but the body was way too big. It didn't have a tailored or trim look at all. The red liner reminded me of what you see in a halloween costume. Cheap and plastic feeling. Also, when I slid my arm into the sleeve, there was extra liner that would push through the cuff opening. I would have to spend time adjusting the sleeve to have it move back into the arm opening once the coat was on.
<Note from Schott NYC: This wool is intentionally very heavy (32 oz) to protect against the elements. It sounds as if you would have preferred style 751 which is 24 oz melton wool and much less stiff. The lining coming out of the sleeve is something that we would need to fix. That's our mistake. We make the lining slightly larger than the body (or sleeve) to give you some flexibility to move around, but it's a very fine line between not enough extra room for mobility and too much extra room where it ends up poking out the bottom. In the case you described it sounds like there is too much fabric coming out the bottom of the sleeve, something we should and would quickly repair.>
This Navy Leather Trim Peacoat is amazing. This is the first purchase that I made from Schott and it certainly will not be my last. The craftsmanship of the coat is first class and I have already received numerous compliments on it. I have been looking for a peacoat for some time now and Schott definitely hit the mark with this one. Ordering was simple and it arrived on time as scheduled. Can't say enough good things about this purchase!
This turned out to be a perfect fit. I followed Schott's sizing recommendation and was not disappointed. The sleeves were not too long and the fit although close in the body still alows enough room for a shirt and sweater underneath. A heavy and warm coat for cold weather.
The leather trim gives a nice but subtle detail effect as does the bright red lining.
I would definitely recommend this coat to others.
In my opinion, I would order the same size chest as you would for everything else. I followed the other reviews and ordered a size up and I wanted a slim fit and it was definitely not what I wanted. But Schott was fantastic! I let them know and they made the returns/exchange process seamless! They sent me a return label, let me order a size down and when they received my other coat they sent my new one and the shipping was really quick! 3 days from NY to IA. And now the jacket fits me perfect and looks good! I definitely give this coat 5 stars and Schott’s customer service 5 stars as well! Thank you.
Very happy with purchase ... awesome coat . delivery was very fast by Fedex . thank you Schott
