I'm looking for a modern pea coat. G-star?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I'm currently looking for a slim fitting pea coat. So far the best one I've been able to find after trying everything on that I could get my hands on is a pea coat by G-Star raw. Does anyone have any opinions on these coats? I want it to be something I'll wear for awhile and just worry that some of the detailing isn't classic although I guess I could always have it removed. It did fit a little tight in the shoulders. I'm rambling but it's 4am, can someone please suggest something. I appreciate the help, as always.

I've got the banana republic coat. It comes in small and extra small, both are pretty slim fitting.

banana republic isn't slim fitting at all. the cuts are just boxy and the armholes are cut huuuuuuuuuuge. i know a guy who used to work there and he couldn't wear anything they had (and he worked in one of the big stores)

You are wrong. I almost exclusively wear their stuff for work and it is quite slim in both shirts, coats and pants. Maybe not their casual wear but the work/dress wear is amongst the slimmest of the big companies that have a lot of stores.

And I am a very thin guy, albeit not a complete stick, at 5'9 146#

A lot of people on this forum seem to misunderstand the meaning of the word "slim," at least in the traditional sense when referring to the cut of a garment. Brands like Southern Proper, J.Press, Brooks Brothers and the like have a "classic" fit. J.Crew, Banana Republic, Diesel and, yes, even Abercrombie fit in a "slim" fashion. Band of Outsiders, Rick Owens, Julius and all of these other "it" labels do not offer "slim" cuts, but rather make clothing that will fit tightly on skinny people.

jil sander makes slim, classic coats with modern twist.

sev, I see your point about slim-fit clothes, but you have to remember that us 26-27ers are too small for even the smallest size your "slim" companies make. If I was a medium in US sizing, it would be simple to find slim fit shit.

you are on crack. nobody does classic yet modern minimalist basics as well as raf does for jil right now. of course there are outlying flashy pieces, especially with raf designing, but every designer has those. the suit you are talking about is actually quite amazing in person though. i wouldn't wear it, but its more subtle than you think, and the effect is done by actually hammering threads of wool in contrasting color into the fabric of a solid suit. every piece is different and the time and artistry required to produce them is unbelievable. have you ever seen jil's double-faced wool construction? mind-blowing.

J. Skid. Where can I check it out? Also, any opinion on APC's wool pea coat?
post #14 of 27
its pretty much impossible to find jil online, but most barneys stock a fair amount of the collection. except here in chicago, but thats just because the jil boutique (only chicago & nyc have a jil store) is right across the street.

apc is ok, its cheap but you get what you pay for. looks alright but not the best fabric or construction and i find the fits to be boxy most of the time.

You smaller dudes are lucky to have companies that basically cater their lines to toddlers, I've never found a line of clothing that has really fit me decently and probably never will.

^^ You ain't that huge yourself....actually there are plenty of good stuff for taller bigger guys, and it looks way better that on smaller chaps Have you ever seen guys 5.7/8 in pea coats or trench coats ? look freakin hideous.
post #19 of 27

How much you want to spend? Single or double breasted? What color?

If you just want a nice pea coat go to an Army-Navy surplus store and buy a navy poea coat and go have it tailored to fit a bit better.

Sterlingwear works for me. Even JSKidder owns one and they are cheap at $120ish a pop. Plus you can tell them (within a certain range) how to cut it.

It's 'modern' enough for me, since when I go out, fashion-clueless idiots tell me weird things like "Can you get radio transmissions on that collar?" and "You look like a vampire!"

After more research, I'm a big fan of woolrich woolen mill's pea coat...it's mad expensive though (shopjake.com). Also, APC seems to have a classic pea coat. I saw a friend's military surplus coat the other day. It fit pretty well, all things considered. I'm wondering if I took it to a tailor if they could cut it perfectly.
