catlady531 on Etsy....Just listed....vintage 60s usaf navy issued raincoat

This is a vintage 60s United States Air Force issued navy blue nylon raincoat with the below the knee styling. The coat has the rounded mackintosh style collar and shoulder epaulets. The coat buttons down the front with 5 buttons. (1 at the neck, 3 main and 1 closure button below the knee). The coat also has the covered front placket. The jacket also has slash pockets. The back has the cape back detail and under the cape is the mesh netting vent. The long sleeves have the tab which is adjustable by 2 positions. The inside also has the neck loop for hanging. The coat is lined in the nylon waterproof lining some may call it rubberized but to me it is nylon. The coat has the original Centre Mfg Co label stating itis a man's lightweight blue it is number mil-r-38213A (USAF). There also is a tag in the coat for name, rank, serial no and organization. There are numbers in the jacket F6870. The jacket is marked a size 42S and measures....up to chest 50" (underarm to underarm and doubled), 24" sleeve, 20" shoulder point to point and is 43.5" long. The jacket is in fantastic vintage condition and gently worn. The only item to note is the below the knee button is broken in half, so all that is attached to the coat is a half of a button. It still works.
