If you don't mind me asking, what are your stats? If uncomfortable with that it is okay.
5'9", 36" chest, 30" waist, 140lb
I'm normally stone-cold size 36, so the USN stuff must run large! I've only got one other 34 and that's an Aero Barnstormer, which is a jacket usually worn as an overcoat but I wanted to wear it just with a jumper so I sized down.

If that is a 38, you need a 34. I probably have a 34 lying around somewhere. Might even be a Kersey.

I going to merge this with the main peacoat thread.
I certainly may be interested. I'm slightly athletically built, don't know if that makes a difference.

Thanks. Damn it sucks, it's in such great condition. Dont know if I can find such a specimen in 34/36.

You will find one. These jackets are plentiful on E-bay. Some ask a lot, some less so. I have found great scores with low asking prices. wait a few weeks and you will find on.
I have purchased at least 3 jackets that don't fit me. They are close. It takes a few iterations I am afraid. For example a 36 in a WWII would be way to big on me for a post 1949 when the style changed to six button.

There are some beautiful 34's on ebay right now. Just search "US Navy Vintage Peacoat 34". A lot of them are nicely priced too.

Please do let me know if you happen to have a 34 around.
I would suggest looking at WWII eight button versions. You are lean. The early jackets are much better fitted to this form. You may fit into a 36. Everything after 1950, 6 button, are boxy. My opinion
