I’ve been looking for one in my size for a long time and, THERE IT WAS! A real-deal men’s pea jacket in wonderful almost-black close-woven wool, with those buttons with the anchors on them. There are not many guys who wear a size 34, so this catch was elusive, but a good investigator never lets the trail get cold.
These jackets are so warm and have such a wonderful fit. Even a gal with an hourglass shape looks great if the size is right. Remember that these coats are made for working sailors who need protection from the elements while still looking smart and spiffy.
Just right, in time for Fall and Winter weather. Layered over a turtleneck sweater, or a cable-knit, or whatever. I can dress it up and around in lots of ways. I’m just so delighted . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
