1950s Italian Navy bridge coat

This vintage overcoat was made in Italy for the Italian Navy. While it appears to have been produced in the 1950s from the label, save for the gold anchor buttons, the silhouette, with its sharp peak lapels, belted and pleated back, and nipped waist have a distinctly 1930s look. Switch out the gold buttons for black plastic and you have the perfect pre-war civilian overcoat.
