Description

*Note* The latest batch have a different fabric and is not felted but woven. Liners are quilted or plain satin - see pictures 4 & 5. Some have more buttons under the lapel but all have a pair of 3 visible to the front. These will be picked at random. There may be marks from storage but this is the best batch yet!

Despite their socialist overlords, it seems the NVA (Nationale Volksarmee) couldn't shake off that classic German coat design. These coats don't look completely out of place even in a formal setting. Look sharp and turn heads in one of these quality made East German coats.

Similar in look to its World War 2 predecessors, these coats are full length and finish below the knee. Made from a wool blend these are pretty warm but reasonably thin - there is a decent amount of room for base layers. The double breasted button up front is just the right amount of dapper. They have a distinctively large lapel for maximum style and 2 slanted pockets with unsecured flaps. Like any good coat there is a internal breast pocket which is a perfect size for a little bit of schnapps (or vodka).

If you have sentry duty spying on your close neighbours, want a striking new look or just looking to stay warm, then try a bit of East German history on today!

Great Product, Exceptional Service

Had a couple of questions about the coat - Ryan only too happy to help out and ensure I got exactly what I was after. Coat arrived next morning and was exactly as discussed.
Coat sizing is near perfect, in great condition, couldn't find any faults, tears or holes. Looking forward to some colder weather so I can try it properly.

Excellent Quality, Extremely Fast, Wonderful Service.

Just like the title says. This product arrived a full WEEK EARLY from the projected date, which in itself was amazing!

The overcoat itself is in incredible quality for its age. Interior lining is intact, and the fabric overall has minimal damage besides the expected wear and tear. The only tear I found was in the lower neck/shoulder line, but it was just from a very small removed metal bracket, NOT a seam tear. The size was accurate as well! Do be aware that the sleeve style of this particular type of jacket is much larger than contemporary coats.

I would recommend dry-cleaning your jacket, and pre-purchasing mothball substitutes to remove the smell. Again, not an unexpected issue, and definitely not the fault of the seller.

TL;DR: Great service, cool authentic product, great sizing, fast!
