    I just bought this coat off Ebay and it turns out it's too big for me.

    This is a vintage, WWII-era US Navy peacoat made by Navel Clothing Factory, originally issued to Seaman S.O. Martin.

    This is the coat that Real McCoys based their 10-button peacoat on and has the following features:

    - Rare 10-button front with all original buttons;
    - Collar/Throat Strap;
    - Corduroy-lined handwarmer pockets on the front;
    - Single vent in the back;
    - Internal chest pocket at right breast and internal cigarette pocket at left hip.
    - Wool is super dense and windproof.

    The coat is in excellent condition, considering it is 70 years old. The lining is flawless and is stamped with the name of the original owner. There is some minor moth damage on the exterior, but except for a tiny hole (1 mm wide) on the right sleeve, it does not penetrate the coat (just some of the felting is gone). Honestly, the shade of navy is so dark you can barely notice the damage at all. The coat does have a bit of a thrift store smell and could use a trip to the dry cleaners.

    Measurements:
    Shoulder to Shoulder (straight across) - 21"
    Pit to Pit - 22"
    Length (bottom of collar to bottom of jacket) - 32.5"
    Sleeve (Shoulder to cuff) - 24.5"
    Sleeve (Pit to cuff) - 16.5"

    I am considering returning this to the person I bought it from on Ebay, so act quickly if you want this jacket.

    I was wondering if you still had the 42/44 vintage peacoat for sale and if so, would you mind telling me your height/weight. I am interested in purchasing a vintage coat and yours sounds quite nice.
