be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I'm 5'9" and 165 lbs - my chest measures 38", and the size 36 fits my shoulders perfectly. The sleeves are a little long, but that's easy to hem. The Regular length is longer than I expected: it fully covers my suit jackets well past my belt line, but that just means I can wear it with suits! The Navy color really is as dark as everyone says, but this makes it easy to wear with black and gray in addition to your more typical earth tone colors.
With the top three buttons fastened (and the bottom unbuttoned for a slight flare), the coat has a high collar: this nicely frames a necktie knot and allows for even a short scarf to fully fill the collar with a Parisian knot. A crew neck undershirt is a classic look as shown in the product pictures, and I look forward to experimenting with turtleneck sweaters too.
Overall, this is a versatile and well-constructed coat. It's well worth the money, but I'd recommend subscribing to the newsletter: at one point they sent out a discount code that wasn't advertised on the website, which made it an even better deal if you're willing to wait.
Need a heavy winter coat for overall needs. Classic design and awesomely constructed. I ordered size 54 which was way to big. I ordered a size 52 and that fit really well. No hassle at all sending back the size 54.
Note I am 5'10" @ 180lbs.
Schott's U.S. Navy Pea Coat is one of the finest cold-weather items made. The coat is warm, its wider collar when throw up smothers your head in comfortable warmth, and, who knows, if you're like me (no Tom Cruise look-a-like), you'll be stopped by people complimenting you on your coat. I've got two, bought each of my sons one, and just presented my sixteen-year-old grandson with his first U.S. Navy Pea Coat. That makes it a three-generations item in our family.
That's a lot of reliable, enjoyable warmth!

I am amazed by the construction of this coat thick and fits grrreeeat for Utah’s weather very pleased with my purchase size 52 / 32 length
I have been wearing this coat for a few weeks now and I love it. Bought this to replace my first one which was issued to me by the USNavy in the late 70's. The quilted lining and heavier wool make this a superior coat. I hope to have this one for years to come.
So heavy, sturdy, well constructed and classic looking. Will last longer than me on this planet!
Jerri in Customer Support was phenomenal
I love it its very warm
I was uncertain about size. I'm 6-1 tall, wear a 42L suit coat, and shirts with a 16.5 collar and 35 or 36 in. sleeves. The 740 pea coat in 42L was out of stock so, with some difficulty, I forced myself to wait for it. Smart move! On arrival, the sleeves were just a teensy bit long, but I had a local tailor fix that; otherwise, the fit was just perfect.
And my tailor was astounded at the quality of the coat --- as was I! All those other reviewers are correct: If you're leaning toward buying a pea coat, this is The One. Don't even think about buying some cheap alternative.
