Bundesmarine pea coat, long, dark blue, surplus
Not quite a greatcoat but not as short as a traditional pea coat, this German navy coat is made of very nice woollen gabardine style fabric and is complete with a zip-on liner and brass anchor buttons. Nice enough to wear at formal occasions, but not at all a bad choice for regular use either, just don't wear cargo pants with it! Superbly proper quality for cheap.
The coat is just a traditional Pea Coat but a bit longer, with diagnoal weave gabardine style fabric. This probably consists mostly of wool with some polyester mixed in for durability. In any case this is high quality fabric. Smooth polyester lining so the coat silps on effortlessly. The zip-on liner vest is made of wool flannel with polyester on the upper part. If you don't like the brass buttons, they are easily replaced, subduing the coat's look drastically.
Sized in the German parade garment system; first the BW size number, then user's recommended height and chest circumference in centimetres. These go both ways in 4 cm increments. If you fall between sizes (for example, if you're 176 cm tall and there's sizes 174 and 178 cm available), we would recommend picking the larger one.
Be advised, these are NOT feelgood sizes like too often seen these days, but accurate ones. By picking a size by your measurements, you will get a nice fitting coat - overall the fit is more like a suit jacket than a traditional pea coat. If you use inches, multiply by 2,54 to get the centimetre equivalent, or divide the centimetres to get the inch size.
We get these in random bundles and have no control over the size range, like often with surplus.
Our model is size 175/95 and wears size 178/96.
Made in Germany in the 80's, 90's and probably later too, from properly good materials, these aren't cheap department store crap. Although these are used, they haven't been worn in grimey conditions, which means the coats are overall pretty nice and clean, although a bit wrinkled after years of storage in bundles and there might be some occasional loose threads and stitch holes from old insignia. If there's anything worth mentioning, you should just in case check the buttons for any loose stitching and reinforce them, as we do not have extras.

Väri on oikeasti lähes mustan sininen. Kuvan sininen on kaukana totuudesta.

Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
