1950s-1960s Mighty Mac Boat Coat peacoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271760788987
This vintage coat is a “Mighty Mac” Boatcoat. It is a peacoat style with a twist. With its navy blue Melton wool body, its handwarmer pockets, patch pockets and button-on hood, it draws from the designs of WWI peacoats, WWII peacoats and British duffel coats to create something which is unique, yet recognizable. These were marketed in the late 1950s through to about 1962 by Mighty Mac to the high school and college aged crowd, and were made in sizes 14 through 20 (ages). This one is the largest size, a young man’s 20, which is equivalent to a men’s 40. It originally sold for $37.95, which is roughly equivalent to $300 in today’s money.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (base of collar to hem): 32″

1950s Italian Navy bridge coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271722668680
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.

Shoulder to shoulder:20-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 42″

1950s-1960s Robert Lewis plaid peacoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281424741232
This vintage coat was made in the late 1950s-early 1960s by then popular outwear maker, Robert Lewis. The design is somewhere between a peacoat and a mackinaw. The two have always been close in design- hip length and double breasted, with the fabric being a large part of what sets the designs apart. This one is a close copy of a post-WWII peacoat in terms of cut (with the pea coat anchor buttons really cementing the style), but made in classically mackinaw napped wool plaid fabric. The muted plaid makes it suitable for both casual and more dressy looks. The coat is lined with a warm pile material and quilted sleeves.

Chest (pit to pit): 23″ (doubled = 46″)
