Finnish M22-36 greatcoat #2
A true classic from ages past, the model 1922/1936 greatcoat had its moment of glory during the Winter and Continuation War. Differs from the M36 by the colour of the collar. Real deal piece, made of very thick wool, with a heavy lining fabric. One-off piece!
A Greatcoat in the true sense of the word, this is a formidable piece of Finnish military history. One can only marvel at the workmanship and quality not found anymore. Many of these were made by tailors for certain individuals, as was this one.
The size is about Euro 44 (as marked), or X-Small: actual measured chest circrumference about 92 cm, waist 86 cm, sleeve length from shoulder seam 60 cm. By taking into the account the proper fit of this type of garment, we could say this one is made for a small gentleman who's about 165 cm tall and has a chest circumference of 82-86 cm and a normal build.
In very good shape for its age; there's almost no moth nips at all, just some little wear on the buttonholes. All in all a superb specimen! You could wear this out in the town, it's that nice.
