Rated 4 out of 5 by BBfan THE CLASSIC PEA COAT
I was impressed with the quality and the look. Very warm too.
I was concerned with the fit. I normally wear a large in most BB items. I had to go to an XL which fit but with no room to spare. Arm holes were noticablly higher along with a very trim fit through the body

Rated 3 out of 5 by JMT3 Great coat...hardly navy, though.
The fit on this coat is excellent if you want a slim, tailored look rather than the traditional bulky winter coat. The wool is soft (for wool) and feels very warm. The lining is first class.
However - and this is a *very* big however - this coat is hardly navy. I would even go as far as to say it's just plain black. I own several navy colored slacks and jackets and this peacoat is darker than any of them. Either Brooks has mischaracterized this [black] peacoat as navy, or the fabric is so dark that the coat is functionally black. Seriously, it looks that black.
A fine coat in fit and material, the color just happens to not be the navy you may have pictured in your mind.

This coat does not have faux front pockets! It has two working front pockets with a corduroy lining. All you needs is a seam ripper and good eye to remove the thread BB stitched into the pockets to keep them flat for shipping/display purposes. Very warm coat that is true to the Navy Peacoat tradition. Sizing/cut runs a tad lean. I am a 44R, which usually equates into a size large. The large was tight/uncomfortable so I had to bump up to the extra large. It fits perfectly.

I'm a big guy and worried this would be too slim fitting based on reviews but it isn't. It isn't loose because the style is athletic due to the history of the garment. It is broad in shoulders and snug but room for a sweater or blazer. Very nice sturdy and dense wool but not scratchy or stiff like old school navy surplus. It is great for cold weather due to big sturdy collar. great pockets for warming hands. very cool item

This is a very elegant coat with a sleek and elegant cut for a peacoat. A great practical, casual coat with more style than usual. Also very warm and comfortable. My husband really liked it and wears it all the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SHALLENA Wonderful classic pea coat!
Excellent wool and tailoring, very good fit to my body. Nice buttons with anchor. (Buttons are the same as on my little son's pea coat - family look!).
I'm very glad I have it!
Many thanks to Brooks Brothers!

As the other reviewer mentioned, the coat does have two front pockets, you just have to cut through the stitching. Very comfortable coat and keeps you warm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Turk1 Why would anyone make a Peacoat with faux pockets?
I returned this Jacket. Why would anyone make a Peacoat with faux pockets? It has interior packets, but it would be difficult to unbutton to get out a cell phone. Working front pockets are an essential. Plus they keep your hands warm on a cold winters day. Loved the fit and fabric.
