View Full Version : M1926 Overcoat

I am looking for an M1926 Officer's overcoat. Is there any place besides eBay that might have some for sale? I'd need a 44 or 42, most likely.

What Price Glory has the 1939 inlisted variant.
You might even try AEF Supply. They have the Model 1912 Overcoat.
Down in the 1900-1936 section of this site they have one on a Christmas Sale Price of $49.00
Here's another site that has Officers overcoats:
I hope that this helps.

Officers had to supply most of their own uniforms, all of which came from tailors and clothing stores and were made from approved patterns and materials. According to my 1942 edition of "The Officer's Guide," it was frowned on for officers to purchase certain items of enlisted men's clothing such as the overcoat, as it didn't "conform to to the standard prescribed for officers." to quote the book, "If you wish to look the part of an officer, wear officer's clothing!"
In other words, don't waste money on an enlisted men's overcoat and then try to make it look like an officer's model. Get the real thing.
