This coat has three deep working pockets, and functional turn backs. The outside of the coat and the turn backs are 100% wool. The inside of the upper half is a cotton lining to detract from some of the weight. All buttons are cast pewter.
The coat was well made and very detailed. I am a size 43 chest and the 44 was a great fit. I will admit that the sleeves and armpit were very tight. I ended up returning the coat because of this, I didn’t think I would be able to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath it. As others have said call ahead to discuss measurements and ordering.
Once I get my measurements taken will place another order.
Had always wanted a Continental Line coat that "my ancestors" wore and this really fir the bill.
Well made, fits very nicely (Sleeves are a little snug with a ling sleeve shirt) and nice quality wool, compliments the rest of the Uniform.
May look for the "custom" buttons for the Massachusetts 6th Regiment, but great coat as is.
