Slightly lighter weight than our Belgian Great coat, the wool used is a very high grade, woven with a smooth finish. This Swiss Greatcoat is available in a beautiful heather gray/blue, and also our special over-dyed black. It has epaulets at the shoulders and Swiss insignia buttons throughout. The arm cuff is very long to let down for added warmth. There is a 20" pleat that buttons up in the back. No clothing has the history of Military surplus - wear the genuine article!
