Sneakers provide a modern, fresh look. I like. them...personally. But I I do like my boots too.
Don't get me wrong. I'll still throw on a pair of sneakers with my peacoat, but boots just polish the look. And with a pair of Chukkas, or the Thursdays, you can still cuff your Salvedge. ;)

Couldn't open the page. Will try later. What specifically do you want an opinion on?
Looks to be a coveted 1949. Looks to be in nice shape and a reasonable price.

Edit - I didn't look close enough. I missed the no contract number of the 1949.

Finally got it to open. This is advertised as a "WWII era." It isn't. It is a post war coat, probably barely Post War in 1945.
Yea I was assuming it wasn't war time simply due to the buttons. From pics it looks well cared. Most other coats for sale currently in decent condition are $100+. Anyways thanks for chiming in.

It was, thanks!
I will be interested in your report on the finish/fabric of your 1949 Jacket score. My 1949 is a bit heavier feeling and the finish is more textured compared with my WWII's which has a stiff, smooth, more refined look and feel. My 1966 also has a more refined texture. So I will wear the more refined jacket with a collared shirt, and the more textured/informal version with a sweater. It is nice to have both. But at the end of the day, the peacoat is one of the most versatile jackets. I am splitting hairs.

Interesting. Will definitely report back. I think this one dates to 1945 considering it has "100% wool ornamentation" and anchors in the corners of tag. I could be wrong though, that's just what I got from the dating guide.
