Finnish M36 greatcoat #3
A true classic from ages past, the model 1936 greatcoat had its moment of glory during the Winter and Continuation War. Real deal piece, made of very thick wool with a full satin lining. 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. We think the collar has been replaced at some point, as it looks newer than the rest of the coat.
The size is about Euro 48 (US 38R): actual measured chest circrumference about 104 cm, waist 96 cm, sleeve length from shoulder seam 66 cm. 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 175 cm tall and has a chest circumference of 94-96 cm and a normal build.
In very good shape for its age; there's the occasional little moth nip, some little wear on the lining and one top front button is missing, however we have included a replacement with the coat. Unfortunately there's two small bits eaten/torn away from the hem, see the pictures.
