All prices include shipping to the continental US via USPS with delivery confirmation.

Measurements (in inches) are my best conscientious effort with a measuring tape.
[chest=pit to pit & doubled; shoulder=seam to seam across back; sleeve=shoulder seam down to end of cuff; length=bottom of collar down to jacket end; waist=measured flat & doubled; inseam=bottom of rise down to pant cuff end; cuff=measured flat & doubled]

I love this suit but I can't wear dark colors like charcoal without looking like a corpse. My albino Irish loss is your gain!
I suspect that this suit was a special order because of the lack of a size tag and the unique dimensions. Dimensions suggest a 41R or a slim 42R. Armholes are EXTREMELY high/small. [If I didn't need the money I would keep this suit just to show my next MTM tailor what proper armscyes look like.] Very good condition.


SOLD






USN issue wool peacoats
Kersey Blue 38R, 44R

Double breasted; Seven fouled anchor buttons (four to button); thick 100% melton wool with heavy cotton corduroy pocket liners; full lining; extended stand-up collar; single vent

44R -- chest: 46 1/2 sleeves: 24 1/4 Length: 33 1/2
38R -- chest: 43 sleeves: 25 1/2 Length: 32

If you want a genuine peacoat in blue that's 100% wool, you won't be able to get it from Schott or Sterlingwear. Starting sometime in the late 1970s or early 1980s, the Navy stopped issuing Kersey blue (akin to midnight blue) coats and switched to black. They also switched to a wool/nylon blend fabric with a poly liner.

I have two coats for sale - both in very good condition for their age with only a very few minor shiny spots and moth bites.
I own two Kersey peacoats and I love them. They shrug off snow and rain and block out chill winds. Give them a once over with a Kent brush and they glow. Kersey coats were made in the era before poly fill lining, so the 100% wool melton had to be very substantial to keep the wearer warm. THESE COATS ARE HEAVY, not flimsy like the crap you find at BR or the Gap. These coats have deep corduroy lined pockets that keep your hands nice and toasty. It is amazing how something so outwardly soft and comfortable can be so hard wearing and durable.

44R SOLD
38R SOLD
