For $350 sounds like a good deal although I'd prefer a darker color. Right now I have a Croft & Barrow jacket which looks good but is not very warm and a VERY warm parka I bough from a sports shop which is not stylish. Any other brand you'd suggest?

I have the dark grey one, the reprocessed wool+nylon+poly blend made me very hesitant initially.

I've had it 4 years though and wear it daily in the winter, and there is no wear and tear at all. It's a beast of a coat at 32 oz. wool.
What do you think of it in terms of stylishness?

I enjoy it, especially the colour vs. a typical dark navy peacoat. Pair it with a nice scarf and you've a nice casual coat to last you all winter.

Don't expect a slim fit though, this is a full cut jacket all throughout.

My chest size is 36 inches, and I ordered a 34. I have enough room for a chunky sweater to fit underneath.
I'm the same size as you. Where did you find size 34? Smallest I can find is 36.

I bought mine from the Schott website.

I'd recommend e-mailing or phoning CS to get a second opinion for sizing as well.

Also I see you live in VA. Depending on how you plan on wearing it and layering, it may be too warm considering it's 32. oz wool.
Good point. I wear the parka that I have only when the temperature is near or below freezing. Doesn't happen all the time but enough to have warm coat.

As I said I'm not really satisfied with the Schott. Bloomingdale has this one from Burberry on sale for $760. Looks better, at least in the picture. Do you think it's worth it?

I got this one from Schott. Supposedly made of wool alone for $400.


Here I wore it with the thickest sweater I had. It fitted well however you see how the top button is pressed all the way to the side. Is this "bad"?

It's snug but comfortable. It was comfortable driving to work in it. HOWEVER it's not that warm (compared to a parka for example) even though it's made of 32 z wool and (something that seems to be the case with all peacoats) it exposes so much of my chest to the elements.
