This is a great coat for me. 5’9 165 lbs and a med fits perfect with just a bit of room for a light sweater. I originally bought the Schott original pea coat but it was very heavy and bulky for me. I live in Ga so the weight of this jacket is more suited for 20-30 degree winters rather than northern winters. The grey color is a deep grey...very classic that can be dressy or looks great with jeans.
This jacket is just as described - the original in a lighter weight with a slimmer cut. With thinner and less material, for some reason it is over $100 more than the original (worth it, just a little odd). I purchased both to compare, but the California weather dictated I keep this one. I am a 38-40, and the medium fits perfectly. I still have a little room for a medium-weight sweater underneath.
Not a bad coat but it was much lighter weight than I expected. I was looking for something heavy and substantial to be worn in really cold temperatures, but this was not it. I will consider the regular fit coat instead, which sounds like it has a heavier weight. At $400 this coat seems way overpriced.
Beautiful jacket, especially if you are looking for a lighter weight pea coat. I am 6'1", ~185 pounds and wear a 36" sleeve in a dress shirt and usually wear a 42 long in a suit jacket. The size large slim fit pea coat was a little tight through the chest and a touch slimmer through the hips than I wanted. It was also short in the sleeves. Jerri at Schott was very helpful and advised me to purchase the 740N in a size 40 that fits perfect! Thanks Schott, I am very happy with my new pea coat.
I couldn’t have been more pleased when I opened the box and tried this jacket on. Absolutely perfect. It may be the finest garment I’ve ever owned. I’m 5’ 10” 150 lbs and ordered the small. I’ve only had it a week and I’m tired of fielding random complements. It is fitted and anything more than a T or thermal would make it pretty tight. Highly recommended. Good luck.
Beautifully made. Quality product as usual. I’ve only bought Schott coats for the last decade simply because they hold up and the fit is always on point. I still have the first one I bought.
So I thought I wanted the Leather Trim Peacoat (Slim Fit) 740C, which has leather piping trim and red satin lining, definitely an attention-getter. That coat has a thicker fabric and is actually tailored to your suit size (e.g., 38, 40, 42, etc.). However, when I went and tried it on at the Schott store in NYC, it fits much looser around the waist/body that you'd expect for a slim fit cut. Which is disappointing as it looks really cool in person and feels so well made.
So I decided to try on their Slim Fit Peacoat 751 in Navy, which is just sized XS, S, M, L, etc., so you'd think it wouldn't fit as exact as the Leather Trim Peacoat. In fact, it fits so much better! It is actually tailored to the shape of a body, rather than boxy like a peacoat. Also, it was slightly longer (in size S) than the Leather Trim Peacoat (in size 36) and has no vent versus the Leather Trim being vented in the back. It also doesn't have the flashier bits like the leather trim or the bright red lining, which the Leather Trim Peacoat 740C has, both of which I liked. And, for some reason, even without all those details (e.g., leather, vented back, heavier fabric and red satin lining), it costs more than the Leather Trim Peacoat. I'm not sure why that is (maybe the fabric is nicer or it is harder to make a jacket that is actually shaped to the body?).
In any event, it fits like a tailored jacket and looks a bit dressier on than the Leather Trim Peacoat (by the way, that peacoat is very dark navy and looked black to me in person; this coat looks navy). Also, the lighter weight fabric made it easier to move around (that is, the fabric has "give" to it so you don't feel stiff like the other one did). So I bought the Slim Fit Peacoat 751 and am super satisfied. The store employees were very helpful as well.
I’m a pretty slim guy, at 5’10” 176lbs and I feel like I’m swimming in most coats so this was a nice cut for me. Normally I’m mediums, but I’m a little broader in the shoulders. So I ordered the medium online and while it did fit, it only fit just so. It was a little snug in the shoulders with just a t-shirt so wearing anything like a sweater underneath would have been out of the question. So I drove into the hell that is Manhattan to exchange it, and parking aside the staff at the store was beyond helpful and was more than patient with me trying on several different coats before I settled on the large. I recommend both the coat and the store to anyone.
I'm 5'7" 165lbs and medium fits me perfectly. The small was too tight.
Warm, well made and looks great.
