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 tag in the inside pocket says this was made in Stockmann (a classic, still active store in Helsinki) for a reserve captain Valjakka in 27.4.1940. The slightly different coloured shoulder boards may be added later, but these are definitely army spec.

The size is about Euro 48 short (US 38S): by taking into the account the proper fit of this type of garment, we could say this one is made for a gentleman who's about 165 cm tall and has a chest circumference of 92-96 cm and a normal build. Sleeve length from shoulder seam 57 cm.

Condition

In superb condition for its age: this coat has certainly been used a lot, as indicated by the wear on the buttonholes, but apart from this, we found no moth nips or holes in it. A very nice piece of war history here, almost perfectly in the condition it was when separated from the old owner.
