I just gave my Son my Sterlingwear Pea Coat. I went and bought a Schott Pea Coat for myself. It has the quilted lining and heavy wool once I found out Sterlingwear went out of business. I wear a size 50 so it's very hard to find real vintage Navy Pea Coats in my Size.If Sterlingwear is truly gone, then that's sad news. Guess the pivot to medical gowns didn't save them; they never seemed very interested in further developing their sales direct to consumers. I had hoped to be able to gift my kids with peacoats when they came of age, guess by the time they do it'll be either Schott or lucking out with by then difficult to find vintage surplus. I do hope Schott survives at least. They might not be makers of authentic peacoats, but at least it's heads above the cheaper stuff from most other big name clothing companies.
In the meantime I'll probably try to find a surplus vintage for a grab and go peacoat.
