It's bitterly cold, and the Atlantic swell is rising up to 30 ft... The spray whips your cheeks icily, and the darkness makes it almost impossible to see anything but the moonlight glinting on the plunging wave crests, making your job as duty watch officer almost pointless, despite your knowledge that a U-Boat pack is in the vicinity.... You're glad of one thing, though--the warm, if now soaking, peacoat that you were issued, and that you hunch into against the cold.
This is that peacoat. Built by Sterlingwear, this is the military version that's not listed on their website, and only available by Special Order. It has all the features you'd expect, and none that aren't essential; thick, warm, wool shell, half-lined, two slash handwarmer pockets--pleasantly deep--with extra side reinforcements, an oversized collar that stays up when turned up, naval anchor buttons.....
This does have some minor pilling in the unlined interior half, and the interior change pocket in the front right pocket is slightly torn--an easy fix if you so desire! This is, then, in Very Good/Excellent condition.
Asking just $125, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
Size 38R. Measurements:
Chest: 20 3/4
Sleeve: 24 3/4
Shoulder: 18 1/2
