The coat will strike you as being heavy, thick, soft and warm. It may sound like a mountain of wool, but it looks great and holds its shape. Any sense of stiffness quickly passes with wear. You can get a slimmer (i.e. thinner/lighter) coat, but you’ll be hard pressed to find anything this warm. Throw a scarf on top, and you can brave the cold howling November winds while walking a coastline somewhere…and feeling decidedly toasty the whole way. I did it at the weekend. You get two pockets on the inside, and two hand warmer pockets on the outside. All four are good deep pockets. The outside pockets do their “hand warming” job admirably.
In fact, this is a coat which is so good, it may actually require someone to document an operating temperature. You won’t wear this from around April to October when temperatures are most likely to break over 10C. Like a few other comments below, it’s perfectly workable to throw this on over a shirt and skip the sweater/knitted layer entirely in milder weather.
I didn’t call/email the seller directly about fitting, so your mileage may vary here without their more expert advice. With a 37” chest, I ordered the 38”, and they are not kidding about sizing being true to fit. A 38” chest is definitely a 38” chest. Don’t make guesses; find a tape measure and check. I have plenty of room for a light sweater or a thicker cable knit, but I’ve not felt the need to make any adjustments. We’ll see. It would be a simple matter for any tailoring service to shift the buttons by an inch to create a snugger fit. The benefits of buttons vs zips!
I found the sleeves reached towards my second set of knuckles with arms at rest. That’s not entirely surprising – nothing in my chest size has ever had a perfect sleeve length. There’s usually an extra inch or more. Presumably I have short stumpy arms compared to the perfect average guy clothes are tailored for in bulk. I’m sure the sellers can check the 740N’s arm length for your chest size if a worry.
The usual pop up collar of a pea coat, in this instance, comes across as functional. It’s not a two inch nod to manly style, but a full 4 inches and you’ll find an extra pair of buttons lurking higher up the coat to close the front more completely to boot. A reminder that this is a real pea coat that serves an actual function besides looking good. As a rule, I just don’t pop my collars unless there’s an actual reason to so this suits me fine.
Quality wise. It’s simplicity of form means there’s no zips to get stuck, no awkward pockets to break, no cheap stitching to fall apart a month after purchase, and no flimsy buttons. The stitching and construction is solid throughout. The fabric is thick and durable. It’s a coat that will last many years.
If there’s a very minor quibble, the button stitching is exposed to wear and tear. These aren’t show buttons, so they do experience some stress keeping the coat closed. Luckily, I don’t believe we have a severe global shortage in black thread and needles! Buttons being buttons, I would expect some to need a little maintenance stitching from time to time (esp. since I wear a bag whose strap runs over two specific buttons all the time). The coat comes with no spare buttons (they can be ordered from the US I think), so a little due care will not go amiss.
I found the coat slightly cheaper elsewhere but they were offering sizes as S/M/L which seemed odd to me as other American clothes I have purchased have always gone up by 1 size and had a good range of sizes to choose from. I paid the extra and got my exact size from Silvermans. I paid online on Sunday with a delivery estimate of Friday. On Tuesday I received an email confirming dispatch and 3pm that afternoon the coat was delivered. Impressed with that. The coat was well packed in a box and plastic suit cover with its own hanger (always need those). Its cold here so it was on with the coat over a long sleeved t-shirt and out for a walk. Very warm and comfortable. I highly recommend this coat as an investment. Its expensive but I think it will last for many years, its high quality construction and materials are worth the price. It is also a stylish coat looks good on.
Thats enough of me prattling on about my lovely coat. If you have long arms (mine are 25-26" from wrist to level with shoulder) get your chest size. If you have shorter arms you might be able to go down a size for a tailored fit. If in doubt call Silvermans as apparently they offer advice on this although I did not call. So enjoy your coat, if you get one you'll know what I mean.
Ended up buying it, despite the cost as it seems to be a genreally held opinion that it is well worth the extra expense for the quality.
Well, I am well impressed. It is an incredibly warm coat, Size 42 is perfect for me (I'm sort of in between a 42 and a 44). Allows for a jumper under the coat, or just shirt without being too tight or too loose either way. Wouldn't want anything too think under such a warm coat anyway, which brings me nicely onto the TOG factor, if I can cal it that I have o idea what the TOG factor for this jacket is, but it's gotta be up there with the warmest of 'em. Used it today on a not too cold day and I must admit I had to undo it and I only had a shirt on underneath.
The jacket also has 2 deep pockets inside, one on either side, which aren't mentioned on the sales pitch, so means you can keep wallet, ID docs, etc.
I just can't work out why i waited so long before buying one of these jackets.
