Well you can count me as well pleased right now. For several years I have wanted a Schott leather pea coat-my go-to Winter jacket has been a Schott car coat for a while, but the one I really wanted was the pea coat. Unfortunately they regularly go for a lot more money than I was prepared to pay-even if they started off low on Ebay, the price would shoot up to £200+ by auction end, some new ones even being offered at over £300. A couple of weeks ago I spotted one which was at £16. Started watching, and on the last day with an hour to go it was still only £24. I decided to put in a bid at £70 (still less than half the price the last one I watched went for), then I went out. To my astonishment I won it for £53! With postage it cost me just over £60. The seller had issues with MyHermes, and it took nearly a fortnight to get to me, but it arrived yesterday and I am knocked out! By the pictures it appeared to be a slightly dog-eared example (I wouldn’t have minded), but apart from the odd loose thread in the quilted liner (par for the course), it’s immaculate! The leather is less shiny than my car coat, but beautifully supple, no problem undoing the buttons as I’ve had with other similar jackets. Fit is spot on. Yeah, I’m sure an Aero or somesuch would be nicer, but I now have three Schotts and I’m delighted with all of them. Well made, tough as old boots, look great. Unfortunately I will have to wait a while to wear it ((I nearly died taking the photos!), but I guess the current hot weather here may have been a factor in it selling cheap. Bring on the Winter!
