VINTAGE WWII US NAVY 10 BUTTON WOOL PEA COAT WITH CORDUROY POCKETS & CHIN STRAP
- Source: eBay
Offered is a WWII United States Navy Wool Pea Coat with the tag that reads Naval Clothing Factory. It also has the owners name stenciled on the lining. There is no size listed, I am guessing it is a 36. The person wearing it about 5'7", weighs about 140, and normally wears a 36 or 38. The measurements are 19" underarm to underarm, 32" from the back of the neck to the hem, 24" sleeves, and 18" shoulder to shoulder, 17" across the back underarm to underarm. If you are a big guy this won't fit you. This would even fit a woman. It has 10 buttons with anchors, the chin strap in place, and corduroy pockets. There is a little wear to the lining, No tears, holes, rips, missing buttons or any damage to the coat apart from 2 small spots on the back where the wool is bare, really not noticeable at all. I ran a flashlight over the entire coat. It does need to be dry cleaned. It just came out of a local estate packed in the attic. It actually looks better in person than in the photos, the color is much better, which is a dark navy blue. There is no odor as well. Winner pays shipping. Please .
