be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
THE QUALITY AND FIT IS OUTSTANDING. I'M VERY HAPPY WITH PRODUCT. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR ANYONE PURCHASING A PEA COAT.
I’m a size 42R in slim fit suits, and having never owned or worn a Schott product, I was worried that the regular fit would be too baggy to keep out the brutal Chicago winters, so I visited the shop and was immediately impressed with the fit of the coat and the sheer weight of the material. This will hold up for decades I’m sure. I’m 5’11 ~185 lbs and my recommended size was 40. I tried It on with a thicker cardigan to be able to see if I could layer it, and it was snug but not restricting, which I’m sure it will get better as the wool breaks in to my body shape, and also the elements won’t get in, which is the whole point. Glad to be making the investment, if possible, go in and try on the coats and if you’re not near a shop, get your measurements done and go with the recommended fit.
I purchased the 740n in Oxford grey in size 44. After entering my measurements, the suggested size was 44 so that’s what I went with. After trying it on once it was delivered, I knew immediately that it was way too large. The return process was a breeze, though, and they had the new coat (now a size 40) in less than a week. The new coat fits perfect now. I also changed the color from Oxford grey to navy, which is so dark that I think most people will initially mistake it for black. That being said, I love it. It’s obviously a high quality product. To anyone that’s considering purchasing one, just know that the recommended size might be too large and that you’ll probably be better off going a few sizes down.
VERY IMPRESSED WITH QUALITY AND FIT OF THIS COAT. WILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO FRIENDS AND COWORKERS. COMPANY IS VERY CUSTOMER FRIENDLY. I WILL BUY OTHER PRODUCTS. THANK YOU.
The coat met and in some aspects exceeded my expectations. First-rate materials and construction and shipped to me quickly. I highly recommend this coat and Schott. I'll come back.
This Pea Coat is better in person than online. Great value and quality. The fit is perfect. This is a piece you could pass on to your kids when you pass on.
Looking forward to the first signs of a crisp evening or early morning to break this out. I have some time since it June.
I've owned one of these pea coats previously and it lasted over 10 years. They are incredibly warm (even in Canadian winters) and stand up to a beating. In my opinion, also way cooler than all the Canada Goose, North Face and other winter coat products out there. If these were good enough for sailors in WWII to wear on the deck of a ship in winter, pretty sure they'll fulfill your needs!
This jacket is so sturdily put together I will likely have this pea coat for the rest of my life. Living in Akron, Ohio, I often need a heavy jacket five months out of the year, so this coat is worth every penny. It's versatile and can be worn over jeans, khaki's or even a suit. One word to prospective buyers: be forewarned that even the "New Navy" color option is an extremely dark shade of navy; the original "Navy" must look black.
I've been looking at this coat for a long time, but was a bit leery because I don't like to buy without trying on. As I live in the midwest that was not possible. However, the coat exceeds my expectations. Very thick wool as advertised and fits beautifully. Looking forward to next winter! The only improvement would be a throat latch. All in all though, a great product.
First, Let me put the quality of this peacoat in perspective. This is the fourth (4th) peacoat I have owned since 1967 after enlisting in the U. S. Navy. The first one was issued to me at U. S. Navy Boot Camp in Great Lakes, IL. It was a six button coat, and it was outstanding. I had that coat for 25 years. After gaining 25 pounds during that time, I gave it to goodwill many years ago. I bought a second peacoat from L. L. Bean six years ago, and I still have it. It was made by Sterlingwear of Boston, for L. L. Bean, and it is an outstanding coat. Two years ago, I bought another peacoat from L. L Bean to keep at a different location, but they had changed vendor (sources) and it was of poor quality. I bought this peacoat a few weeks ago, and I can already state with my history with peacoats, that it is of SUPERIOR quality. I like the eight button front better than the six button, and the Schott's coat has two inside pockets. You will NOT find a higher quality, better made peacoat than this one anywhere for any price.
Now, for sizing. I am 6'2" tall, and I weigh 220 pounds. I wear an 18/18.5-inch (neck) 36-inch sleeve dress shirt, and I wear a 48 long sports coat. I bought the Schott's 48 long peacoat, and it fits perfectly. I like my peacoat to have some room in them to wear a heavy sweater or hoodie under them if it is really cold. I am 70 years old, so I am probably not as fashion conscious as younger guys, but this coat looks great with very refined features. You can wear this for casual and dress occasions. I have lived all over the world during my Navy career, with over six years in Rhode Island and Maine, and my peacoat kept me warm as toast in any weather. I gave this product a "5 star" rating because that is as high as they will let me rate it. This is the last peacoat I will ever need. You will not regret buying this coat, and it is worth every cent of the money.
