Did you look at Green Pepper 537 Frenchglen Barn Jacket? It is close, but not perfect.

It's similar also to Burda 7918, but I was hoping for something a bit closer--I like how the Old Navy one has a mandarin collar rather than a blazer style lapel.

I can't believe how hard it is to get a pattern like this, since is a standard outdoors sort of jacket that's readily available in RTW.

The nearest I could find was sundry BWoF parka patterns that could be modified. The last couple of years the have had variations on the parka in every winter season issue. These were one I thought most useful...

1-2005-129
1-2009-123 (ignore the naff fabric)

Good luck withfinding something suitable

I recently purchased a really beautiful Japanese pattern book of men's coats from an ebay seller, and I'm pretty sure it features several coats similar to this one. I'll look tonight and post some pics. I bought it for the men's peacoat pattern but the book itself is total eye candy; instructions in Japanese but beautifully illustrated; patterns printed on pull-out sheets without seam allowances BWOF-style.

Edited to add: here's the book on Yes Asia:

Hmmm . . . the men's coat I was thinking of is double-breasted with a collar and in-seam pockets so not a perfect match. Still, I took some photos for you:

Sorry for the poor image quality . . . but you get the idea.
