be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
I'm now on my second one of these after I outgrew the first, I bought that coat around the same time I re-discovered the gym after lockdown so I only wore it for one winter before it became way too tight in the chest, but it was a no brainer that I’d eventually get another one.
I ended up giving my basically brand new coat to my now 17 y/o cousin, but having never tried on a peacoat before he was a bit unsure about it at first, he’s more used to Canada Goose parkas and North Face puffer jackets. But after wearing it a few times and discovering that it’s incredibly warm and more importantly that his mates really like it, it’s quickly become one of is favourite winter coats..
When I bought my original Schott back in 2021 I hadn’t owned a pea coat for a few years and two things immediately struck me. Firstly I’d forgotten just how stylish this type of coat is and secondly I discovered that there’s a big difference between a slim fit fashion pea coat and a proper one, On face value they look the same but the Schott is much thicker and heavier with a huge collar that’s actually functional and large buttons that are easy to use with thick gloves, it's still quite a smart looking coat but is also rugged and purposeful along with being incredibly warm and easy to wear.
The sizing of the 740N has always baffled me slightly, don’t be surprised if it takes a few attempts to get it right. In the UK and Europe it’s slightly harder to get right because many retailers only offer S, M, L and XL which seem to tally up to a 36, 40, 44 and 48. Luckily the shop I ended up buying from (Mr Porter) had included product measurements so I asked my cousin to take some measurements from his coat and from that I worked out that my normal size large would be the best compromise as I intend to wear it with thick jumpers.
For reference I'm 5ft 9in, 42in chest, 33in waist with wide shoulders and a V shaped torso and it is a bit on the roomy side when worn over a t-shirt, particularly around the waist, but with the material being so thick and sturdy it still sits well with the sleeves finishing just on my knuckles.
But lets be honest, you’re supposed to wear this coat with knitwear and with a nice jumper it’s spot on with enough space that it’s not constricting or difficult to button up, this coat is thicker in real life than it looks in pictures along with being heavy and quite stiff, if you start sizing down in an attempt to get around the boxy shape and make it into a slim fit you can very easily end up with something that may look good in the mirror but is tight and uncomfortable when you wear it in everyday life, now I think about it, my original 740N was probably too small for me from the start.
I have always wanted a Schott Pea Jacket and now I have one. The jacket is extremely comfortable, smart and looks very hard wearing. I cannot wait for winter to come round so I can get it on.
This is my first Pea Coat and I found Schott from another review on a competitors website. The coat is exactly what I expected. The color was perfect and the workmanship and quality is outstanding. Will look at Schott again for our needs in the future. BTW, I was even impressed with the box it came in. You could tell someone took their time to tape up all corners for the product to get to my home undamaged. Thanks.
Looks, fits, and feels great. I get quite a few compliments on the coat. Thanks for a quality product and very satisfied with my purchase!
Awesome great quality, very pleased
The best of the best of the best!
I’m a satisfied owner of two 740 style peacoats. First post was for the black colored peacoat, purchased back in Aug’20.
I recently purchased the Oxford Grey color and could not have asked for anything better! Both peacoats are amazing and fit perfectly. I’m 5’-7”, 195 lbs, built body and w/big shoulders, so size 46 peacoats were purchased. They are stylish and keep me very warm during cold winters.
My first peacoat was purchased back in 1998 & fell in love with it. I was ready to retire that peacoat after 22 yrs., but could not find anything similar to it. I am glad I was able to find Schott NYC back in 2020! One suggestion, I wish Schott NYC would offer a dark brown color peacoat in their 740-style.
Service was extremely fast and efficient. Size was perfect (I'm 6'4"). Couldn't be happier.
Was looking for a new warm coat and remembered how much I loved the pea coat I had as a teenager. I looked around trying to find the classic pea coat and discovered Scott and the 740. They come in larger sizes which is great since I am big guy. I received the coat and it was quite heavy. The wool is thick and dense. It feels substantial and is very warm. This coat is a winner and I am wearing it a lot now. Highly recommend this coat - it is the real deal.
