Rated 5 out of 5 by PDXMark Really nice coat but sizing is an issue
I've been looking for a peacoat for a couple of years now (had an authentic one 40 years ago but lost track of it), and have tried a number of them. This is by far the best and comes closest to the real thing. The only problem for me is that small is too small and the medium is too big. You've done it, llBean, you've created the best peacoat. Please go ahead and make it in sizes, I'll buy the 38 in a hearbeat!

This is a beautiful coat. Unfortunately it is not true to size. The first coat I purchased was a medium for a 5'10 165 lb man. The only place it fit was was the shoulders. The sleeves hung past his fingertips, was too long and very loose. I returned and ordered a small which was slightly better, but still very loose in the sleeves and chest, waist. I really have never seen a coat fit quite like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natick1 Just a great coat
I am very pleased with this coat. Made in the USA. Well tailored and a nice, heavy material just like the pea coats in the "olden days" like the 1980's or so. I was given a pea coat as a gift a few years back and, while nice, it was a lot lighter material and it just didn't hold up well. I expect this one to outlast me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MarylandResident Beautiful coat, but not for my body
I have wanted a peacoat for years, and this year I finally took the step of ordering one. First of all, it's a beautiful coat. I purchased the navy color, and it is nice and dark. The fabric has a wonderful feel, and the coat is extremely well-made.With some qualifications, I would recommend this coat to a friend.
That being said, I did return the coat. It may be that I have for years worn coats with a looser fit and softer fabric, but it just wasn't comfortable. The best word that I can come up with to describe how it felt is "constrained." Turning and raising my arms seemed to take more effort than I expected. I think that this is probably due to my build - I'm 5-11 and 200 lbs. Also, I found that the double layer of the heavy fabric across my front got in the way.
It's a beautiful coat, and I think a person with the right build would find it a great coat that should give you years and years of wear. It just didn't work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by firecaptain349 NICE COAT
I received the coat and the following weekend the wind and cold came in. The coat is warm and fits perfectly. I usually wear an XL but the large is big enough.....LL you've done it again.....

Rated 3 out of 5 by box778899 Strange fit, not as warm as advertised
The coat has a tight fit at the arms, and I can hardly drive while wearing it. On the other hand, it has padding at the shoulders and a wide flare out at the thigh, making the coat look enormous on my body while offering no space inside. Despite the weight and bulky look, I didn't find it to be very warm.

Nice quality but too large.
The padded shoulders even make the coat appear larger.
I had to send this coat back. Can't exchange because there are no small navy's left.
The previous pea coat from LL Bean was a great fit in a medium.
