    Questions About the United States Navy Peacoat

    Greetings Dave. Because of this universal peacoat problem of the buttons, and having acquired a few, I have become very proficient at re-sewing peacoat buttons! Whenever I attempt this on a peacoat, I first take measurements of the button holes vertically from each other. I don't have my list...

    DD's quote 2218 - THIS EXACTLY!!! I myself have posted this before. This reg puts the length right about at the upper thumb joint or about a half inch above the knuckles when arms down in a natural hang (not at attention with arms fully extended down and thumb against the outside trouser seam...

    Pecards query

    I remember that and Pecard actually responded to an email query I sent questioning about the differences between Antique and Leather Dressing - they advised they are the same. The Leather Creme features more content of their Leather Oil, making it a thinner consistency grease than the Antique...

    Pecards query

    Pecard's Leather Dressing and Antique are the same and thicker than the Pecard's Leather Creme. I use the Leather Dressing mostly for waterproofing boots and shoes and the Leather Creme for everything else, as it absorbs much more quickly and is easier to apply. I've used their products for...

    Alec, I believe the boots are: Irish Setter Men's Countrysider Waterproof Chukka, circa ten years ago.

    It looks perfect Kid_Pistola! Added benefit of looking good with light layers while comfortable and wearable with more when you need them! Ah, versatility! Oh, and this guy looks as good with his fit too:

    WW2 ERA SURPLUS PEACOAT 40R/42R

    It's an excellent book, but not cheap. I am going to next buy the volume preceding this one, covering USN 1940-1942. I do have his volume, "Sailors in Forest Green - USN Personnel Attached to the USMC" and it is equally exhaustive.

    WW2 ERA SURPLUS PEACOAT 40R/42R

    As usual, Peacoat is spot on. Jeff Warner, in his tome, "U.S. Navy Uniforms and Insignia 1943-1946," states that the "MANUFACTURED BY NAVAL CLOTHING FACTORY" with "Name" line over "Rate" line was fully embroidered through 1942 and "in approximately 1943, Naval Clothing Factory labels were...

    Questions About the United States Navy Peacoat

    IMHO, that coat fits you perfectly! Shoulders hit exactly where they should. Also, PEACOAT states in his pinned post that these early post-WWII coats fit more trimly than same sizes made later. Also, the throat latch was featured only on the WWII 10-button coats. Excellent condition...
