yeah kinda ooking for one i can grab right now lol

i like it tho!

what do you think of the two i originally posteD?
I prefer the Kenneth Cole. The trim is a bit much but the cut and fit is right on.

I know everyone prefers the J Lindberg but it looks full blown Winter especially with those big lapels and bulky cut.

Just to mix things up a bit - do you suit a double breasted coat/jacket etc.? I ask because neither I nor my husband do. I do remember wearing them though WAY back in the day - I guess around the time of the Beatles' invasion. Yep, we are "old -er" - hence why I am asking the question because fashion isn't entering into the equation for me. My husband has a couple of similar jackets that are single breasted and they just look better on him. Actually, I look best in styles from the 1930s - always have, so very difficult to find something that suits me. Hope you enjoy your jacket.

Definitely - what goes around comes around - if you live long enough you will see the same things a few times - perhaps with slight changes! But as a person gets older and learns what suits them, or perhaps what looked okay the first time does not look as nice the second time around, fashion takes a back seat. I see women my age looking a pictures of themselves dressed in mini dresses wondering why more than 45 years later they are only wearing a blouse (think "mini").

Young people have been asking the owner of the consignment shop I frequent if she has any Pea Jackets - she did and sold them.

Great buy. You realize I have been hearing the original Beatles' tunes in my head ever since reading your reply! Definitely lots of kids wearing them at university when I went. Definitely timeless - they just don't suit me.

I prefer peacoats that have slash pockets... absolutely hate the flap pockets but that's just personal preference.
Just a couple of examples... which are probably way more than you're willing to pay but you can find others that look similar fairly easily:

Real McCoy's Peacoat - inspired by the 1930s peacoat used by the US Navy.
Buzz Rickson's Peacoat - based on the 1910s peacoat.

As mentioned before though, why buy a reproduction when you can get the real thing for a lot cheaper from an army surplus store?
Also, if you intend on wearing a peacoat for spring, I'd just give up on the idea and look for a Bomber jacket instead.
