Really nice Vintage Kersey US Navy Pea Coat

Hey all

I have about 5 of these old sapphire blue super thick old US Navy issue pea coats which I try to grab in larger sizes which are hard to find. This one was so nice I hate to sell it but it is just way too snug on me......

It is labeled a 44R but I am about a 45 chest and while the shoulders and upper chest area feel ok the waist/belly area is quite snug - it is a very athletic taper. (my waist is about 39") I have another old coat from the Manufacturer (Bonham) and contract number era and it fits far looser on me. Unfortunately that one is falling apart, hence my looking for a new one. But this one will never fit well on my (ahem) less-than-athletic taper.........

If you search under ebay user name "taogp" you will find my auctions, running till Sunday 12/17/06. NOTE: the pics are atrocious; my digital camera seems to be on its last legs......pls email me for a better pic (i'll try) and take my word as a gentleman - it looks a LOT better in person!
