Welcome to Antiques & Bygones. ORIGINAL WWII KRIEGSMARINE GERMAN NAVY U-BOAT LEATHER JACKET COAT WITH FUR COLLAR. In very good condition for WWII.
A 100% original large sized WWII German Kriegsmarine Naval U-Boat / Submarine black leather jacket with dark brown fur collar. Features front flapped pockets, single inner pocket, buttoned cuff tabs, epaulettes, collar buttoned back tab, metal clip and loop to secure the collar at the front, dark grey/blue wool lining, Size 1 cotton label and re-enforced zig zag stitching at the back of the collar that's typical for the era.
The epaulettes have a single pin hole either side and a clear impression where a metal Star Command Pin was once present. Made from horse hide leather that's very supple.
This is in untouched as found condition and would darken if a cream was applied. Is best suited to a Size 42-44 Chest. I'm 6ft and a 44 and just slipped this on wearing a shirt. There's ample room for a thick jumper as would have been worn underneath.
Across the chest measured flat arm pit to arm pit 23.5. Across the back shoulder seem to seem at the narrowest point 18.5 (along the shaped join). Sleeve length from top shoulder seem to tip of cuff nearly 26. Waist 23.5" flat (x 2 47").Exceptionally with the fur collar and in this size and condition!! PLEASE READ THE CONDITION REPORT.
