Got a vintage 1950's - 1960's Crombie heavyweight. Hopefully it is a good one.

Mick Jones formerly of The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite is a big Crombie man.

I'm considering ones of these Harris Tweed delights:

I will put these in here. A felted wool that is about 28 oz and very warm.

Have you heard of them @Truth
yup. they make nice stuff. I am always tempted to buy the roll neck.

But you know what Shooey, I choose my Dachstein jumper over the felted wool jackets I have most of the time for cold weather. For your cold they will be fine. I have a 28 ounce felted wool liner that I had made for me to wear under my Ventile parka shell and it is decently warm. It has a fleece lining. Not better than down or synthetic insulation inner layers. Sorry for the hay and lint but it is a chore jacket.

This wool-alpaca pile is warmer than the felted wool when worn as an outer layer. At least to me. As a point of reference I wore this today and it was -4C with a -13C windchill.

I have two peacoats, an expensive one from Burberry and an inexpensive one from Gurteen. However, if I don't wear one of my many long overcoats my current winter jacket is a Douglas Gold car coat in Abraham Moon Tweed.

I have ordered another Douglas Gold car coat.

I enjoy it but find myself thinking that a more typical peacoat collar might be preferable.
Agreed. This isn't the typical peacoat, though beautiful. I even bet that the fabric is cashmere, or it has at least some, whereas the original peacoat is in tough wool.

Mine is cashmere, yes, but they do it in all sorts of cloth. That includes cotton for summer versions.
