50s Men's National Fire Service Peacoat

Black wool and heavy! Mens smallish size, see measurements. Info on the NFS here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Fire_Service

Here's the story: It was missing 4 buttons so I bought 12 buttons to replace all of them. I finished one side and tried to cut the buttons off the other side but these are IN the coat! Impossible to cut off, so it's half original buttons and half replaced. The 2 buttons in the back are coincidentally so much like the ones I replaced but these came with the jacket (research shows that the back buttons should be NFS buttons too). The two buttons that were left on the one side will be included because these buttons are collectible. Double breasted, military collar, tapered waist, almost a peplum look. Fabulous lines in this (do I dare say it's sexy?). Totally wearable as well as a great collectible. CONDITION NOTES: Pretty amazing. First, no moth holes! Slight wear at edges. There are hand stitches in the collar and more hand stitches in the inside armholes where the white lining in the sleeves meets the lining in the jacket. It has not been dry cleaned as I no longer have a reliable dry cleaner who will take on vintage.
ON SALE? It could be. Private sales are done here from time to time so look for a dark pink sale banner with a discount code (percentage off) on any of my shop pages. Individual items do not show sale prices during private (non-site-wide) sales.

Not sure? Remember, this is outerwear, so measurements should be a bit larger than your body measurements. So what you do is measure a coat that fits you and compare measurements given.
