As above, I found them very effin cool. I saw one today and I'm aboout to buy it but aside from a shirt without a tie... in what other sutiations a peacoat is suitable for?

Thanks!
 
Sweater - something Nordic looking. Not a fucking v-neck from the banana republic.

Betel - if you're going to get one, get an authentic replica from a US manufacturer. Not a mall brand ripoff.

I saw one from Hampton & Son or something like that, I think it's british.
 
Get US Navy surplus for the authentic thing. Probably also the best.
 
Pics would help me a lot. :)

Does a peacoat can be used over an SC, like an overcoat or not?
 
Peacoats are generally too short to use as an overcoat

Nice thanks, Chorn and Rambo, I was kinda doubting that point in special in order to buy the 42 that if fit me well or go a size up in order to wear it with a SC.

Now should it be solid or can be textured? By textured I mean the one I like, doesn't have a pattern but looks rougher than a solid one. The link has some that are nice, that brings me another doubt… how many buttons are "correct"?

That irks me to no end. It's a fucking Peacoat. It's not a fashion accessory.

Haha I think I didn't explained myself correctly, it doesn't have a pattern but it has texture.

FWIW, I'm local to the Schott factory and bought a neat plaid paid pea coat in a slimmer fit at their factory sale last year. It turned out to fit me wrong, so it was resold, but novel takes on classic wear have their place. I'm not really in the military, ya know. They are just less practical and timeless than the unmolested original deal.
A proper pea coat, I think, is melton wool, and has a fuzzy, somewhat coarse, texture, a lot like a wool blanket. I believe the construction is actually woven, but a good nap should exist so that it doesn't really show on casual inspection.
 
To update this thread. I bought this one. I don't even know if it is a peacoat but it is awesome.

It looks like a peacoat made out of waffle weave towels.
I think at half the scale, the textural pattern would be a neat subtle thing, but at the current size it is overbearing and is too reminiscent of a jute rug. If a colored pattern was woven in there, it might actually help.

:LOLguy:

There was one that was really bad ass but I wasn't planning on spending that much on a coat right now. This I think will serve well.
