I’m 6’1” 195-200 lbs.(average build) I purchased size L. I think I have a size 41-42 inch chest - when I buy suit jackets I try to find 41 for a snug fit. This coat was a little looser than the snug fit I look for in a suit jacket. However if I went down to a medium I think it would be too tight. The shoulders seemed to fit pretty well which I think is the most important. The sleeve length is a little bit longer than my suit jacket which is good in case I ever want to wear it over a suit. As I mentioned the shoulders fit well but it did kind of balloon out a little bit moving downward. I had it tailored to bring in the sides a little bit(cost me $45), but after I did that I love the fit. I guess all in all I spent $365 but I’m ok with that because I can see this jacket lasting a long time and I love the fit now.
The construction of this coat is excellent. The 24oz. wool blend is a very good weight. I live in New England, I have worn this coat in temperatures ranging from -2 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit. I have worn it comfortably with and without a sweater. The 5th button allows a nice closure around the neck on windy days. I am 5' 7", 145lbs, the medium fit (as recommended) is perfect. The deep navy color is very nice. Personally, I am glad it does not have a vent in back. I am very satisfied and look forward to wearing this coat for quite some time to come.
I was looking for a traditional peacoat and found this car coat. This coat is really looking good and the quality is excellent. It is a bit costly but worth every cent.
It is an excellent coat. It is like a single breasted version of a pea coat. It is warm and comfortable. A good winter coat for walking the streets of NYC.
Fantastically well-made coat that looks great. I like the fact that it's single breasted and the material is a tad lighter making it more versatile in less-chilly weather. Made in the USA! The length is also perfect. It's a nice in-between size -- smaller and lighter than a traditional peacoat but bigger and heavier than a regular style coat. The only con, although not a deal-breaker, is that it's an 80/20 wool blend. I'd prefer 100% wool (even if it costs more). Perhaps a small vent in the back could also be helpful when purposes. The item description on the website is lacking in details and should be more thorough and accurate.
