    Due to my self-imposed directive to only wear black, I've decided to part with my WWII-era 10-button Navy pea coat. This thing is a real beauty and it hurts a little to let it go.

    First, pictures:

    Okay, a little about the jacket.
    First, the bad:
    -Some light wear around the inside collar lining, as shown.
    -Left inner arm hole has a little detached sewing.

    Neither of these things are major.

    Next, the maybe bad but I don't know:
    -I had my local tailor (who is fantastic) reattach the buttons. This is good as they aren't going anywhere anytime soon. However, I had him move a row a little inwards to give me a more slim fit, so there are four minor spots of "damage" where the original buttons laid. I tried to show you the worst of it.

    The good:
    Corduroy lining is present and nice. No moth holes that I can see. Outward appearance looks very nice. Service tag is present with name and rank, which is cool.

    Measurements:
    P2P: 20"
    Shoulder: 19"
    Length: 33"
    Sleeve: 25"

    I am 5'11" (6' on a good day) and weight around 170. With a tshirt, the fit is very nice and not restrictive. I can provide more measurements and photos if needed.

    I'm looking for, lets say $100 shipped in the US. Is that a fair price? If I am way off, just let me know.

    I also have a nice repro navy watchman cap that I can include. Now, I can't remember if I got it from Buzz Rickson or Pike Bros, but it was one of the two (I think I have the paperwork somewhere). I can include that for an additional $25 if interested.

    Lastly, the jacket was dry cleaned and is in a pet free, smoke free household.

    Okay, I found the hat documentation. My mistake as its neither a BR or Pike, but from a Japanese company called Mash Co.

    New, it costs $50 without shipping, so instead of $25, lets say $20.

    Too pricey bump?

    How about $75 shipped?
