  1. Awesome coat, sleeves ARE short... review by Matthew on 2/9/2018

    I’ve seen these on fleabay for 3 or 4 times the price and not in nearly as good of condition! This is almost new, possibly unissued?
    Heavy canvas, solid buckles, all the buttons are there, no holes, no stains, and only the faintest whiff of surplus smell.
    The sleeves, they are very short. I’m 5’10” and they come to mid forearm on me. I believe this is to accommodate gauntlets. I’m betting this was the outermost garment worn over many other layers so a gauntlet would fit over a coat sleeve worn under this coat.
    The belt is very high, again to accommodate sitting in a saddle. But the leg straps are cool, the sleeves cinch tight, so does the collar.
    Those that like this sort of thing will find it to be the sort of thing they like.

    I am size 38 it is fits fine. Sleeves are bit short. Very retro look and roomy. You don't get anything like this out there. It is heavy linen-like cotton. Never been worn, like new. I rode my bike wearing it. No problem. No sure how this functions in the rain. Will soon find out.
