    The BR one is a real gem. i tried it and it fits very well. i was seriously choosing a peacoat to buy until i tried this one on by accident, my gf and i both think this looks much better than a peacoat. it ends about mid thigh, and a simple folded collar looks clean and sharp, whears a peacoat lapel looks overly exaggerated on me, and doubt breast buttons looks stiff, and peacoats are generally shorter and makes one look more stocky.

        I prefer the J. Crew one personally. I have no personal experience with either of them besides seeing them in these pictures, but the BR looks a little too plain for me though it is made better if it's in the "charcoal heather." The flap pockets on the J. Crew help break up the continuity and add some eye catching details.
