be the first to hear about exclusive first-looks, super secret sales,
The most amazing fit of any pea coat I've ever tried. I just wish they made it in the same thick 32 oz wool blend as the regular 740. Then it would be the most perfect winter coat ever made.
First, very fast shipping. I ordered Wednesday and got it next day. Amazing coat. Great material and classic styling. Makes an elegant statement. at 425 it's an investment. I'm 5'7" 150 lbs and small fits perfectly
Great quality, classic silhouette but sleek. Expect my husband will have this for decades!
I originally ordered a small 751 based off of the fit guide. When I received it was just too tight. I contacted via chat over the weekend and received a response on Monday recommending a Medium and I was provided the dimensions. On Wednesday I downloaded the return form ordered a new jacket sent it out same day and received new jacket on Saturday. This jacket is a much better fit looks great awesome quality. I’ll be getting a leather from Schott next year highly recommend
I have the 740 in Navy, and I love it, but I wanted something a little less bulky in a different color. I was able to try a 751 on in person at the Schott store in NYC last year, but didn’t want to spend the money on one at the time. This year, Schott offered a 15% discount Thanksgiving week, so I bought it. I’m 5’7, 157lbs, and the M fits perfectly. The only thing I wish is that it had hand warmer pockets like the 740. I saw a review from last January that a reply from Schott that mentioned the 751 having hand warmer pockets, but the pockets in my 751 feels like a way thinner material than the pockets in my 740.
I bought the dark oxford grey and it is a good looking, versatile quality coat. It's a slim fit so unless you really are very slim you need to size up one size! I usually wear M (40) and the fit predictor insisted on size M, even when i told it i wanted a relaxed fit and had a belly! M was very tight on me but the L almost perfect, only the sleeves was about 5 cm too long but that's an easy fix! I'm 176 cm/74 kg/100 cm chest. I measured the coats (lying flat), as follows; M: chest 102 cm, shoulders 42 cm, outside sleeves 64 cm and lenght 83 cm. L: chest 112 cm, shoulders 46 cm, outside sleeves 65 cm and lenght 87 cm. The L also had much roomier sleeves. Since the coats are handmade there will be differences in measurements but ask customer care if you're not sure. By sizing up i also got room for a warm sweater which made the coat even more versatile, recommended.
I'm 5'10, 170lbs n athletic build. I exercise 3 days a week for the past 2 years. I got a medium n it fits great. They recommended a size small but I've never wore a small in my life. N that was the size chart algorithms anyway, it wasnt n actual person. A little tight on the armpit holes but I have a broad chest n it's not tight enough to send back or go up a size. I was gonna get the 740c with the leather trim n red lining but I wanted something more casual. I've ordered peacoats from 2 other companies this year that I've sent back. Schott was a great find! 10/10 would recomend.
This is a great peacoat and is the ideal weight for someone who does not live in the coldest climates.
Previously, I had owned a Sterlingwear Peacoat which I had bought because it was advertised as being made by the same people who make them for the US Navy. I found this coat to be too heavy and ill fitting.
The 751 is a slim cut and fits perfectly although I got an XL when I normally wear a L.. As with all Schott coats, the quality of materials and construction are without peer. The lighter material makes this much easier to wear than the Sterlingwear.
My only complaint is that on other peacoats I have owned, there is usually one or two internal buttons to help secure/close the coat in addition to the external buttons on the front. I always liked this nuanced feature and it is missing on the 751 model. Small issue, but so close to perfection!
I’ll preface this and say I very rarely write reviews— I save them for when a product or service really goes above or utterly below my standards or expectations.
I have a few Schott leathers (life customer on that end...) and I bought a 740 pea coat back in 2014 that was a go-to of mine for many years. The S size (at the time, the 740 is now sold in suit sizes I think) felt a bit too tight in the shoulders. I went with the M (I’m 5’7”, 150 lbs) and my ONLY issue was that it was a bit too wide in the midsection.
Fast forward to 2020 and I decided it was time for a new coat and went with the 751 size M. What a difference! Everything I loved of the 740 is there... and everything I less than loved is absent. I’ve been searching for the perfect pea coat my entire life, and I think I’ve finally found it.
Keep up the good work!
Initially bought 740C size 32, however the leather trim made the arm look abnormally large (bulging) and the fit was looser than anticipated. Took a chance on 751 size xs, to my surprise the fit was narrower than size 32 740C. Exact measurement on the peacoat:
shoulder to shoulder 15.5in and pit to pit 36in.
