This vintage coat is an m1938 jeep coat, issued during WWII. The style descends from sheeplined canvas work coats and shawl collared mackinaws of the 1910s-1930s. It has a cotton shell and a wool lining. The coat has a double breasted front and a wide wool faced shawl collar. It is belted. There is a buttoned throat latch under the collar to secure it in cold weather, fastened with a riveted “wreath” button. Patches identify the original owner as a technical sergeant in the Army Service Forces.
