Based on an original in the Smithsonian Institute, this coat is very typical of the mass produced garments made during the war by many contractors. Mostly machine sewn, what makes this coat unique is the black tape loop sewn to the inside back of the collar (a feature common to Boylan-made coats), and a more Schuylkill Arsenal shaped pocket than the typical kidney shape seen on many other original coats. This blouse is made from dark blue wool flannel with either a gray or tan wool flannel body lining and cotton muslin sleeve linings. Note:To ensure a proper fit, we request that you get accurate measurements using a tape measure or the strip of cloth and yardstick method detail on the FAQ page. Without an accurate measurement, we cannot ensure that your garment will fit they way it is intended to.If you are taller than 5'9", please let us know that you will need a longer length jacket.For sizes larger than 48, there is an additional $15 added to the item.
