    Nice post a pic when you get it. I got the duffle coat recently and love it, wish I had heard about them sooner.

      Thanks. I look forward to the report. While I vacillated between the blue and olive the sale ended.

      Hoping it goes back on sale as we approach Black Friday.

        So I didn't get out on the trail but I did run to McDonald's for lunch lol. I wore a cable knit shawl collar sweater with an undershirt. It's a loose weave sweater. The jacket kept me toasty and I didn't feel wind at all. It's not very thick but is a bit stiff. I think it will loosen up but am happy with it as is too

          Haha. Fair enough. Sounds like it will work for me too. Now I just have to be patient and wait for their next sale.

            Took about 2 weeks for a good code to roll around that didn't exclude this coat after I missed one. Mine was good for 1 day so I suggest checking the details of each code and coming back the day it expires. I had no idea how many codes they run lol

              The garments came in today and they are so beautiful. Unfortunately the balmacaan fits really large, even though I knew this going in. So the jacket stays (I'll post a pic soon) but the coat is going back

              And of course the smaller size is sold out.... Next year I guess.

              EDIT: Maybe I'll get the one from Spier or Permanent Style.

                  I needed something a little warmer and weatherproof than my Jcrew topcoat so I just pulled the trigger on this parka from Abercrombie and Fitch of all places. It got good reviews around here a few years ago.

                    So as an update I just picked up a past season Bonobos peacoat in charcoal from TJ Maxx, and it's impressed me enough that I will likely keep it. I believe it's the "Bristol" model, but it doesn't have the cuff straps like this one: https://poshmark.com/listing/Bonobo-...705dddb3d7f196. Ticks a lot of boxes for me: color is dark but deals with lint better than navy, convenient pocket placement, quilted lining, and good fit overall, though maybe a tad long. Could definitely cover a suit jacket, which is nice, and I'm not a fan of ultra-cropped peacoats. I also like how the slit chest pockets above the handwarmer pockets give it a unique look...most peacoats you see either have only the slash handwarmers, or have the chest pockets over flap waist pockets a la Billy Reid.

                    And it's super warm. Field tested it today to walk the dogs in 39F with a wind chill around 33F, and it kept me warm with just a t-shirt underneath. I was surprised because I thought I'd need at least another layer. Has that extra button at the neck to hold the lapel in place when you flip the collar, which you would really expect more brands to include but for some reason they don't.

                    I know some folks have had bad experiences with Bonobos quality in recent years (not necessarily due to the Walmart acquisition, but perhaps from cutting costs to make the company as attractive as possible to buyers?). Anyone have any experience with their recent outerwear? I wish I knew the year this coat is from, but all the ninjas could tell me is that it's a past season.

                    EDIT: After a bit more searching, it looks like it may be the "Foundation" model.

                    • So after the balmacaan from SEH Kelly not working out sizing wise, I went for the one from Simon Crompton/Permanent Style and Private White VC. Reckon I'm set for a few years.

                      • I just ordered a Contrast Hooded Parka from Zara.

                        • I just revived a J Crew peacoat in navy. It looks pretty sharp, but runs a bit big; so I sized down. It's not for really frigid weather, stick with the parkas for that. But, it is an upgrade over my Alfani peacoat that I wore for five years.

                          • FYI for anyone thinking of ordering the down jacket from Uniqlo. I was wearing the jacket today as I waited for the bus. The outside temperature was 3 degrees and I'd say the jacket was pretty much at its limit. So if you're looking for a jacket to keep you warm below freezing, the Uniqlo down jacket might not be the one. Hope this helps.

                                Kudos. After much hemming and hawing I did the same thing. I tried the SM balmacaan first and while I couldn't find fault with it (what a great value), the colorway did not do anything for me, so it went back. This PSxPWVC one is really nice, and while it hurt to hit "buy" on, it was the right choice. I expect to get a lot of use out of it.
