Stanton Double Breasted Coat
Fantastic look, feel & fit
I just purchased this coat from the store on King Street in Charleston, SC. They were kind enough to ship it to me here in South Jersey. The Web site shot of this coat does not do it justice. If I hadn't seen it in person, I don't know if the pictures here would have inspired me enough to buy it. However, I'm very glad that I did.
Okay, I normally wear a 42 long, and often order slim/slimmer sizes. This coat had a 42 tag on it in the store, However, the label size is medium. It was design in England, so that may be the difference. In any case, it fits me perfectly. It has a somewhat slim fit, which I totally love. If you think size may be an issue, I wouldn't recommend buying this online, unless you can get to a store and try it on.
The extra slant pockets above the waist look and feel great! The ad on the site is correct. If you don't have gloves, the upper pockets come in very handy.
I've only warn the coat a few times, but I've been complimented already by several people. It's simply a great all around wool coat.

Dressy Alternative to the Traditional Pea Coat
I bought this coat just last week and love it. It is a nice blend of pea coat and double-breasted top coat. The length is great and the little features, such as the toggle clasp at the neck, add nice detail. Additionally, it is very warm and great for the cold weather- the collar in back flips up and protects the neck from those winds.
