Vintage WW1 Edwardian mens bespoke Naval Savile Row overcoat size 36 38

 For sale here is probably the nicest overcoat we've had the pleasure to temporarily own, the coat was made for a lieutenant who later became a commander in the British navy, in 1914. The main cloth is a typical fine hopsack weave midnight blue, almost black wool with complementing velvet collar and silk velvet cuff piping. The style of the coat is the early century slim chested fly front silhouette with slight skirt and fastens up perfectly at the neck. The coat features a small and curved mobile phone pocket and a vertical slip pocket with fastening flap on the left breast, as was the fashion with military and masonic gentleman of the time. In addition there is of course working cuff and the wonderfully fine faux (?) french seams on all cloth meeting points.  The images probably don't do this item justice, it really could be in a museum. 


 Sleeve - 25.5

 Shoulder - 17.5

 Length from top of collar - 47

 Chest - 19.5

Fit - 37 reg

Condition - Excellent. There is a small scuff to the fabric on the right lapel, faint marks where at one point the buttons have been moved to the right slightly ( not seen when fastened). It is worth noting that the original silk lining has been replaced by a nice quality viscose and has been done properly by a tailor. You'd never know unless you'd seen similar items and know linings.
