Dispatch Rider's Coat

No. 5857


Dark Brown


GIFT BOX: (Add $6 dollars).

The Dispatch Rider

The outlook is bleak. Deliver the “vital” message to the 2nd Infantry commander before the enemy reaches the Franco-Belgian border.

The torrential downpour has destroyed most of the roads, and the ones that are still negotiable are like quicksand. You remove the fenders so the caked-on mud has some place to release; it pelts your arms, head, and neck like shrapnel. If the bomb from the blitzing doesn’t blow you up, the crater left by the one thirty minutes prior will swallow you whole.

Head on a swivel, Corporal.

And remember, you volunteered for this.

Dispatch Rider’s Coat (No. 5857). Distressed, below-knee length lambskin coat that takes its cue from the British dispatch riders of WWII. We’ve done ours in leather, more closely resembling the flight jackets of the RAF. You’ll find that aviators and dispatch riders wore similar, and incredibly stylish, coats.

Off-center placket with snap closure below neckline, additional snap closure at chest, tab with snap closure at lower front. Interior tab with adjustable snap closure inside left waist. Tab with snap at right waist (under belt).

Throat latch with adjustable buckle (for mud shrapnel). Overlay at right front yoke with snap. Waist belt with adjustable double-slider buckles (belt is secured with rivets at back left waist). Angled zip (drunk) pocket at left chest. Hip pockets with flap and snap closure. Two interior pockets. Imported.
