EDUBwrote a review of SPIEWAK Dugan Pea Coat - Men's on August 12, 2013
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
i've been looking for a pea coat that I like for a while, and luckily I came across dogfunk's sale. I got this jacket in red heather in a medium. I'm 6' tall and weight 150lbs with a 38" chest, the medium is a good length and the shoulders fit right. I'm built more like a swimmer, so as usual the "box" cut most jackets come in from the factory don't look quite right, so i'm going to have this tailored to fit. The sleeve length is just a bit long, so I will probably have to get that altered too. The "red heather" is a really awesome color, it's more of a burgundy than a red, but the dogfunk pictures are probably the closest i've seen on the net. The jacket is pretty heavy/thick, and looks like it would fair well in most east coast winters, being in Cali I hope we get a cold winter this year so I can actually use this thing. The only thing I can complain about, is the fact that when I read about "I Spiewak & Sons", I thought I was buying/supporting an American made product with an amazing legacy. When I looked on the tag of the jacket though, it says it's made in China ;/
Can't hate on them too much as the construction of the jacket looks pretty thorough, but still I wish with their history they would have kept production state side.
5 stars for a quality product
-1 star for not keeping jobs state side
