Ok, ready for the NY winter:



that's a real nice peacoat.

in terms of size do you think its worth sizing up?

i'm a 38 in a blazer but i find with some japanese brands i need to go for large rather than a medium.

this is certainly true of buzz rickson sweats.

i've just ordered a real mccoy hoody in red but i'm deeply craving the pea coat and can only track it down in a 40.

should i take the plunge?

all advice gratefully received.

Given that you will be wearing winter layers under the peacoat, a little extra space would surely be fine. Strange time of year to be buying one though, unless you are living in New Zealand or something...

That's true...

Hassinator you will probably be fine but as others have said it will depend on the measurements.  For what it's worth, I wear Small in (almost) all IH westerns/workshirts, which would probably equate to a 36 in the Real McCoys peacoat, but I took it in 38 as it fit much better sizing up a little.  Good luck and hope it works out, it is a truly amazing piece.

thanks for the advice guys.

i got four of the real mccoy t-shirts from superdenim for the summer at 38" and they all came up too tight.

i've sent them back for a credit note to cash in against a pea coat when the winter range drops - i'm always planning ahead.

the t-shirts where very well made but perhaps too heavy for summer if you perspire a lot.

i go through white t-shirts like a warm knife through butter so i'm going to focus on mccoy sweats in the future.

btw superdenim also advised sizing up so i'm going for the 40" and will report back when i get it.

i got the new season chambray shirt and am very happy.

it comes with a tag on front - not sure they did this before? - which i have removed.

i'm usually a 15 1/2" in a shirt so sized up to 16" as there is a degree of shrinkage and got it right this time.

the fabric is sublime.  its hard to conceive of it being of a higher quality and its probably my best purchase yet from these guys.

my brother-in-law is dj-ing in tokyo hopefully picking me up the new season cpo shirt - is it true the sleeves are lined?

the rickson version in 38" was too tight for me - i'm a UK 38" regular in off the peg blazers etc.

have asked him to size up and look out for a nice plain navy sweat shirt in large.

will report back when he hopefully delivers next week.
