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.
I think im gonna go for a kennoth cole. Im stuck between XS and S. My chest size is 36". the XS has a chest of 36 and the small a 38. should I go up a size or how does that work? i clearly dont buy exact measurement size stuff very much lolDailow wrote: ↑Apr 9th, 2014 1:41 pmI 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.
