Great coat and great value,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Original Czech Army Issue Military Trench Coat (Apparel)
This isn't a heavyweight coat - nearer to "stout raincoat" if that makes any sense. I'm a 44" chest and normally buy UK size XL, but you should go by the sizing information offered here. The 44" relates to a "Large" and that's what I bought. The coat isn't "generously" made and if you want to wear a jacket or Aran jumper under it, go for the next size up. Some people have commented on the bright buttons, but they seem to be the genuine article, so why worry? They can always be a talking point. I actually put my coat into a local shop to get the button thread strengthened. This - along with shortening each arm by about 3" cost £8. All in all I consider the coat a bargain: wear something woollen under it for winter weather or leave the layers off when the mercury rises a bit. The olive green colour isn't done any favour by the photo, incidentally.
