Bulgarian Military Wool Overcoat

The Bulgarian military wool overcoat is an original Bulgarian military issued overcoat that dates back to the communist days of the nation. It sounds like a mouthful of technical jargon that would translate into an outdated, unfashionable piece of military clothing. However, one look at these beautiful coats will send you reaching for your wallet. Did I mention they are constructed entirely from wool? That’s right; these heavy-duty wool overcoats provide the warmth you would expect during the dog days of summer. Available in three different sizes – small, medium and large – this overcoat would make a welcome addition to any wardrobe.

Our Bulgarian military wool overcoats date back to the 1970s and 1980s, during a time in which the totalitarian republic was still under the Soviet sphere of influence and prior to transitioning into a parliamentary democracy. They are used military surplus items, but are in surprisingly good cosmetic condition, free from rips and tears. Many even lack that oh-so-familiar musky military surplus smell. A quick dry cleaning will have many of these overcoats looking as good as the day they were manufactured. Throw it on and you’ll look as good as the rich socialites that grace your television screen.

These full-length, dark gray (almost charcoal) overcoats are constructed entirely from heavy-duty wool and are designed to provide you with warmth and comfort on even the coldest winter nights. Wool fibers are hollow and hydrophilic, meaning they easily absorb water. In fact, wool is able to hold up to one third of its weight in water. The best thing about wool is that even when it gets wet, it retains its warmth. What I’m trying to tell you is that you can count on this overcoat to keep you warm and comfortable no matter where your travels take you – especially if you find yourself in cold, rainy Seattle.

Now, let’s get into the design details. The Bulgarian military wool overcoat is a single-breasted overcoat with six buttons – each emblazoned with a five-pointed star. With a traditional collar and buttoned epaulets that feature red contrast piping, these overcoats boast a style that is second to none when it comes to military surplus. This overcoat also features two front pockets with flap closure and a buttoned lower back strap. The interior has a smooth, cotton lining sewn in that allows the overcoat to be slipped on easily. The traditional collar can be worn with a notched lapel or tucked in for a traditional collar look. They are available in small, medium and large sizes, though length may vary slightly.

Is this a military surplus overcoat? Yes, but that doesn’t mean it is not great for anyone looking for a fancy wool overcoat. Even if you aren’t an Eastern Bloc history buff, these overcoats bleed form and function. They’re perfect for formal occasions, but casual enough for a night out on the town as well.

cool wool jacket, careful of the fit!
These are very slim jackets and you need to be mindful of that when ordering. They aren't thick enough to be worn without layers, either - so plan to wear a sweater underneath and order a size that will accomodate for this.

Well worth it
When I bought this coat, the only size available was medium. I was nervous about ordering it as I am 6' 2" and 200 lbs. I usually wear an XL.
When I tried it on the length and sleeves were the perfect length but it was very tight across the shoulders and back. I took it to a seamstress and she was able to easily let it out in the back and shoulders. Now it all fits like a glove.
The coat is very heavy and warm. It was in excellent condition with all buttons. There was a slight odor that was not unpleasant. Nothing a trip to the dry cleaners won't fix.
This is an excellent coat for a good price. It will be my new dress coat for winter.

Nice wool coat
This is a nice wool coat. It has been used some, but it is in good shape. There was a tiny stain inside, but you can't see it when your wearing it!
It has a nice classy military look to it. I recommend it!

Brand New Coat....Better than the Photo...Better than other vendors!
I ordered one of these coats for my Son, who loves all things Soviet/Russian & East Block -- but I should have order 2 from KeepShooting right from the start - as once I saw the coat I wanted one & could not get my size, so I bought one from some other vendor (a mistake). My Son absolutely loves this coat - very warm, comfortable, and quite fashionable at his College. His coat came brand new, in excellent condition at an excellent price. The exact same coat I ordered from another vendor was typical mil surplus, a little faded and worn, and no where near the strikingly nice/new condition of the coat from Keep shooting - which is consistent with my later orders from KeepShooting in that they always seem to have mil surp in newer condition than other vendors....
