1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    This trench is made of 100% Wool Gabardine and is in perfect condition without any flaws. Only the most expensive trench coats still use wool gabardine today, but this is the material used in the classic trench coats worn by Humphrey Bogart. Coat has a zip-out wool liner, making it warm enough for use as a winter overcoat.

    This Trench was made under contract for the US Marin Corps and is from the Vietnam era, either 1960s or 1970s. It's a great looking trench in dark greyish-green, not OD.made-in-USA construction. Size tag reads 34 Short, however, this coat was meant to be worn as an overcoat, making it very large for its size. If you are a size 34 or 36 and intend to wear it over a suit, it will fit well. If you intend to just wear it over a shirt or sweater, than this would better fit a size 38. Asking $110 Shipped in CANADA or USA.

    Measurements:

    Shoulder to shoulder: 18.5 inches
    Chest, across front from armpit to armpit: 20 inches
    Sleeves from shoulder to cuff: 24 inches
    Length, from behind back collar to hem: 41 inches
