This is a vintage British Royal Navy Service Duffle Coat, made from a showerproof All Wool cloth, with a fixed hood, and wooden toggles with rope fastenings. Made in England, the internal label dates this to the 1960s. This original oversized fitting duffle allows plenty of room for layering up.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration/ small marks and there are small moth nibbled areas throughout. Not quite perfect but still a beast of a duffle that still has many years of wear left in the tank.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.
COLOUR: Light Tan Brown
SIZE: Size 3 and fits like an oversized XXL (UK Sizing) with a very generous 60in full external chest and the overall fit designed for layering - but it depends how loose you like to wear (please see below for all key measurements to check against a similar garment of your own to ensure a good fit).

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
