I had another one of these in which sold last year.  Check that one out HERE

This vintage officer’s short overcoat / shawl collared mackinaw was made during WWII for Captain H. W. Largent of Presque Isle, Maine.  It bears a USAAF patch on the left shoulder.  It has a shawl collar, a double breasted front, with two flapped patch pockets, epaulettes, and is belted.  The inside is lined, with a quilted section by the arms. The jeep coat has a united garment workers of America union label in the inside pocket.Chest: 21″Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″Shoulder to cuff: 25-1/2″    Photobucket
