    Ever notice how the Dinerman seems to have everything, and if he doesn't have it, he can find definitive pictures of it?

    Now, if he can just find a picture of the elusive RN peacoat (see the parallel thread--British or Canadian Peacoats).
    Nothing matters much and most things don't matter at all.

    I'll try to dig up some better pictures of it, but I have a 1968 issue Canadian navy peacoat. Flapped breast pocket, red blanket lining.

    Dinerman, is there anything you DON'T have??

    PS
    How the "merging threads" thing works? I think that would be easier if we merge this thread with the one I opened (or possibily, with mr Peacoat's permission, with his super-extensive thread on US peacoats)

    Aha! So they do exist. I guess you must see a lot more navy surplus in Halifax. What is the wool like? Is it kersey-like or lighter? Great-looking coat by the way.

    I really like the cut and design of the Russian coat. I love the long row of buttons combined with the short and streamlined cut.

    Very heavy, with a heavy blanket lining and satin lined sleeves. I'd say significantly heavier than its US counterpart. It has molded plastic buttons which look like braided leather ones. These same buttons were used on the big green Canadian (Army? Navy?) overcoats you see around with the quilted linings.
    For both those overcoats and peacoats like this, I've also seen nearly identical civilian versions in different fabrics- but same cut, detailing and hardware.

    As far as naval surplus goes, yeah, we get a lot of it. You can't go into a thrift shop without tripping over half a dozen pairs of older Navy captoe service shoes, and an equal amount of mint green navy uniform shirts.

    The guys on StyleForum would really love the cut of that Russian coat - they seem to prefer skinny stuff. Dinerman: can you comment on the labeled size of that coat versus the real-world fit?

    Now we need to find photos of Canadian naval personnel wearing them!

    Go by measurements. I don't think mine was marked as to size.
