    ^ Great looking coats, friend. In the past I was never a fan of short trenchcoats, but nowadays I can see the advantages. My grandfather called them "car coats" and they were short so you could get into and out of a car easier, since here in N America we go everywhere in cars.

    Thank you.
    On the photos, the length seems a little shorter than it is in real. The length is 91cm, so it is in Germany called "half-long", could be "2/4". But to me a length 90cm and above is also a real coat, I think.
    What I don't like, are, for example, the very short actual Trenchcoats from Hugo Boss or similar. They are length 88cm oder less, so they are more "Trenchjackets"! Thats not, what I want.

    But this "Sergio"-Trenchcoats are nice and similar to the vintage cinema-ones, like Jef Costello or this whole melancholic gangster-thing.

    An early 1950's East German trenchcoat "Wetterlin".

    Super-lightweight... could be cotton, but possibly cellulose.

    Buttons galore. Looks like a multi-eyed spider... probably appropriate for some StaSi agent.

    It is meant for a size 38 and will go to a friend who collects East German stuff.
