1930s U.S. TRANSPORT COAT

460.00

Extremely rare 1930s U.S. military "transport" coat worn by U.S.N/U.S.C.G. officers and NCOs in pre-WWII service. This historic coat was built to not only weather the harshest conditions but also the test of time...a must-have for any serious collector. See Buzz Rickson's limited run stitch by stitch replica here.

FEATURES

  • generous brown sheepskin mackinaw storm collar

  • double breasted front closure with horsehide buttonhole tabs on either side (allowing for right or left crossover fastening)

  • horsehide button chinstrap

  • horsehide trimmed flap pockets that can be worn tucked or untucked

  • cotton moleskin twill shell

  • thick sheepskin lined body

  • wool lined sleeves with hidden storm cuffs

LABEL READS

No label. Manufacturer unknown. Faded stamp on the inside of the left front hemline reads "46"

CONDITION

Mindfully selected for heritage & character. Honest wear, but surprisingly in tact considering garment's age. Some minor staining on moleskin shell. Notable crude sheepskin patch/repair on interior lining (as pictured) and a small tear in lining near right armpit. Horsehide buttonhole tabs on left side are a bit faded/worn and the bottom tab has been stitched together, but right side tabs are in excellent shape. No other perceivable issues. Perfectly serviceable as is.
