Vintage 1970s NAVY Male Officer Reefer Peacoat made of heavyweight Kersey Wool in dark midnight blue. This timeless military-issue outerwear jacket is designed to provide warmth and style in the cooler months.

The classic Kersey wool, a heavier fabric than modern Melton wool, with a deep midnight blue hue is a signature of vintage Navy Officer peacoats. This densely-woven fabric offers superior water-repellence and wind-resistance.

The Reefer Coat is worn by Naval Officers and Chief Petty Officers with the Service Dress Blue or Service Khaki uniform in inclement weather. Officers display hard boards on the loops of their Men's Officer Reefer Peacoat, while CPOs forgo insignia. Women may choose either the Men's style with two loops or the women's version featuring epaulets, as long as the garment is serviceable.

This hip length Peacoat jacket is made of a dark, midnight blue kersey wool with convertible collar, full lining, 2 interior pockets, 2 front slash pockets, and an exterior double-breasted closure made of seven 40-line gold buttons with USN eagle & star emblem.

As advertised. Amazing find. I had one decades ago that was stolen and to find one in mint condition as advertised was unbelievable. Fast shipping, great packaging
