I have a dark blue foot pattern greatcoat with block I buttons in size 40. It's brand new and I can let you have it for $100 shipping included if you are interested. Let me know.

A very nice price, Nathan. However, the coat needs to be smaller than a 40. Thanks.

Still looking.

Heh. You haven't seen my post about how everything seems to be cut bigger than the number on the size tag. I had a nice black woolen civvie sack coat, marked as size 40 R, that I tried to shrink enough so I didn't swim in it... let's just say the effort didn't quite work as planned, and now I need to get the cotton lining cut down to fit it. :oops:

Guys that know me must be enjoying this. This request is not for me, but for a friend who does not have internet service at home. I am a size 3 (modern size 40)--still within period sizes, but not the far left of the bell curve.

My initial request for a small greatcoat by chance produced a nice one (size 40) that I made use of at Winter '64. I have since received several responses, all for coats 40 or larger. I'm bemused; last time I looked, this was the bottom end of the "large" size range. Must be all you guys that are on the far right of the line when the company forms up.

Still looking.
