Since I’ve been looking at Peacoats I usually look through the outerwear section of every online shop I look at. While I liked the construction and weight of the Billy Reid Bond Peacoat the smaller lapels just really don’t do it for me. Plus, it’s about the same price as getting a Buzz Rickson or Real McCoy’s. Those two are my long-term plan, I think, but that would be next year.
Unless, of course, this Bonobos one grows on me.
Things I like about this one:
Things I don’t like:
I guess my thinking would be this one is comparable to the Sterlingwear or Schott, but a bit more expensive. I’ve read that you can call Sterlingwear and order a Navy spec peacoat (not available on the website), but that the Navy spec isn’t what it once was (before 1980).
Still thinking about this one for a while
