Where can I find this peacoat?

Recommended Posts

Best military jackets you can get are from The Real McCoy's , Buzz Rickson and John Lofgren - all Japanese companies specialising in this stuff , super good and super pricey just depends on where you live and how much you are willing to spend .

The Real McCoy's - Superdenim

Buzz Ricksons Europe - Jackets

Otherwise deadstock originals come up on e-bay from time to time although people are asking silly money now probably a lot less pricey if you are in the U.S .

The originals aren't going to fit like the one in the picture without taking them to a tailor. And, they really don't keep you very warm. Too many places for wind to get in. Almost as non-functional in today's world as a 13 button square fly, open v-neck shirt with a big flappy collar, or a white hat that doesn't keep the sun or rain off and won't stay on your head in sea breezes. Very functional 200 years ago, however!

I have a military wool coat similar to that, yet I manage to wear my collar down...

It's actually quite warm

Got a totally legit one from Burlington Coat Factory years ago. Works fine if you're all layered up, I actually remember being surprised how warm it was when I first wore it out. (Although I was 25 and it was my first real 'winter' coat in probably 10 years..)

What is this styleforum now?

But seriously, you can go the Army-Navy/thrift store/ebay route. If you want the real deal, it's Sterlingwear, Schott, or Fidelity, which is what I have. (Not quilted on the inside which is good for Cali.) They come in suit sizes (i.e. 42, 40, etc.) -- very trim, no tailor necessary. Real Melton wool is very rough. J. Crew & Ralph Lauren make a more refined version, but pricier.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
