pea coat options

last year around this time, i bought a schott classic 32 oz melton wool pea coat.  i never left the house in it.  when i put it on, i looked like juggernaut from x-men.  i could barely put my arms down.  i let it hang in my closet until two weeks ago when i put it on ebay.  i”m now looking for a new pea coat that was made for the streets rather than a battleship.  here are a few options i found.  i’ll let you know about fit as soon as i figure out which one i’m going to choose.  if you have a pea coat that you really like that’s not super bulky, please leave a comment.  i’m open to suggestions.
