Yes, but this is a pretty stout fabric.

To make the sizing a little more clear - I recommend going by this for sizing:

38R (US) - S
40R (US) - M
42R (US) - L
44R (US) - XL
46R (US - XXL

and if you are in-between sizes and in doubt - go up to the next size.

Knit wool sure does, but woven wool shouldn't stretch much. None of my tailored wool clothes has changed size. Depending on the weave it can be somewhat elastic, and an iron can shape a wool garment, but when it stretches in one place it shrinks in another. But a peacoat isn't just the wool outer shell; it has a lining and other structure inside and that keeps it's shape.

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

Hi Graham,

What would those US sizes translate to in the UK?

I'm unsure whether to go medium or large... Arrgghhhhhh

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

I just got the black version delivered yesterday. I'm glad I got an XL, because it def fits like a large.

I was tempted, but I actually like it in black. The harrington pockets are lined with leather, and I picked it up at TF Las Vegas last October.

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

Anyone manage to order the Peacoat via the link emailed to them that is not from the US?  I get an error.

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

Very cool that they're (re)making this!

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

Order placed! Cannot wait! Been wanting a peacoat for a while now since CR, love the fact that Bond wears one.

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

Did you guys order a size up, or go for your normal S, M, L, XL, etc?

And has anyone ordered successfully outside the USA; is there a problem as Kuragami suggests at #60 on this thread?

I tried to see what happens if I place an order via any other item on the website and it instantly recognizes I'm an International buyer and gives me shipping options.  This does not work with the link that was sent to me. 8(

I get this error:

Error 105: One or more items have not yet been prepared for international sale. Please remove the item(s) from your basket and try again. Bond Peacoat needs to be removed or modified to continue.

I also tried to add other items with the peacoat and the same error comes up.  If I then remove the Peacoat and try to checkout it works fine.   ajb007/frown

Yes I have.  Sadly I got home late from work around 8pm EST so by the time I sent the email I assume he retired for the day.  I can't check my home email at work. =/

On a brighter note since I was tooling around on their site I fell in love with their Henleys so going to order some.  ajb007/cool

Just tried a speculative purchase myself - I'm agonisingly split between Large and Medium! - and got the same message as you about shippin g to me in UK.  ajb007/crap

Emailed Graham now.

Let's hope it's sorted asap!!!!

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

Yeah I'm heading to bed.  Hopefully it's cleared up by the time I have to go to work.

EDIT: As for sizing I'm going with what DC wears for three reasons.  One he is only 2 mm taller then I am.  Second of all his build being only a 42 chest he is my size if I worked out properly.  Even with no chest muscles I'm a 38 and that's about to change.  That's enough incentive for me to go with a Large.  Shoulders are 18 now and it's definitely going to fill in to 18.5" or 19" so a 19" shoulder is fine.  Not sure how much that helps in terms of looking at sizing for anyone else but that's how I worked it out.  Plus it's easier to tailor down.

I have tried to purchase the peacoat as well and get the same response. I too have emailed Graham. Fingers crossed we get our answers soon.

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

I will try to call Graham today about the international issue...also, I believe Craig is a size 40 R in suit jacket (I am going by US sizes).

The Mantis was always The Bond Experience, but now he is The Bond Experience on AJB as well...

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

Hey Guys-
VERY sorry about the international checkout issues.

Basically, our international shipping solution didn't get updated in time to accept the product.

It should be fixed in less than 24 hours and I'll keep everyone here posted and will also email those who have emailed me about it.

Thanks and apologies for the inconvenience.

Re: The Billy Reid Peacoat is a GO!

also - if you are an international customer and are not automatically redirected to the intl checkout process and you see this page below, click the intl checkout option at the top (Red arrow pointing to it)
