This WPG recreation is copied from an original British made coat named to an American officer serving in AEF in WWI.

This is a shorter model coming to just above the knees (which proved more practical in the trenches), with a classic A-line flared shape to the skirt. Other features are belted cuffs, storm flap at throat, stitched eyelets throughout and leather covered buckles. Overall this is a stunning garment.
