Buzz Rickson vs. Real McCoys Navy Pea Coat

Recommended Posts

I am wondering what the main differences between these two Navy Pea Coats are: one by Buzz Rickson, one by Real McCoys:

Buzz Rickson Navy Pea Coat - USN 1910's Model (at selfedge):

Real McCoys U.S Navy Pea Coat (at superdenim.co.uk):

www.superdenim.co.uk/prodpage.asp?productid=409

Any ideas, experiences, suggestions? OK, sizing is different, price, too, but what about the rest?

In Japan, they are only about ¥20000 difference, but I find the Real McCoy's stuff a bit more solid. (I'm a bit biased since I'm a big fan) I also find that the RM's quality control is a bit better since all the product is made under one roof. Some of their stuff is insanely priced though.

I've had issues with some of the Toyo stuff in the past in terms of construction, but you probably can't go wrong either way.

I would go with what you can afford, since the steez is so similar. I'll get a better impression next week when I check them out overseas.

Maybe Kiya can chip in since SE carries both lines?

Bumping this thread form the graves - just curious to see if someone pulled the trigger - I am currently waiting for the BR pea coat and will post fit pics and stuff as soon as it gets here.

where did you buy the BR coat beatle? Its probably not going to happen anymore this year but I'm going to buy a peacoat myself as well; just doubting between BR and RM, I think the BR is alreadt crazy expensive but then if the quality difference is big enough (like with the N-1 jacket), I might go for the RM.

I doubt I'll spring, given a closet full of coats and my few months per year in winter zones, but I HAVE been drooling over the BR pea coat for some time. I outgrew my Dad's real peacoat, which was simply the greatest coat ever. (It's still in use by a friend's teenage daughter, who loves it.)

Where can I see the best pics and details on the RM version?

And, if anyone springs, pics please!!!

(okay. Duuuuh. In the opening post. I get it. But if any OTHER sites, photos, details, we'll all appreciate. sorry 'bout dat...)

I'm pretty happy with my Schott peacoat, which is considerably cheaper although I don't know how it compares quality-wise to the BR or RMcC as I've never seen either of them.

^ I had an Alpha peacoat which I was happy with. When I got the buzz that changed my opinion . Absolutely no comparison in my book.

There's 1 here beatle. Not the best but I can take more. For reference mine is a size 40 & I wear size 44 in flat head shirts, Large in buzz sweatshirts, mr freedom & self edge shirts. The 40 is a snug fit & I probably could have gone up to a 42 for a little more room though I think they look good fitted.

i am currently looking for size/fit information on the same buzz peacoat.

thinking between 42 and 44, but not sure so far.

the schott (slim fit) version fits me perfectly in a size L.

according to the measurements I found so far, a 42 in the buzz could be quite tight for a winter jacket, whereas the 44 could be too roomy.

if somebody could help it would be very appreciated!

I wear 44 in flat head shirts and 42 in the BR sweat and I have the 42 BR peacoat. It is a spot on fit, fitted but with some room for layering.

Ive only ever tried on the IH heavy chambray shirt in L and that was way too small for me.

Sounds like 42 would be good for you tt. ih xl fits just about right on me, not tight or particularly roomy.
