This is a vintage RCMP pea coat that is dated 1981 and was tailor made in Canada using a quality heavy duty wool in a navy blue colour.  It is lined in red wool.  This vintage RCMP pea coat has a collar and lapels typical of a pea coat and has an eight button front.  There is a flapped pocket at either side and one at the left chest.  The shoulders are squared and slightly padded and have button down epaulets.  The sleeves have two buttons at each cuff and there is an additional button under either side of the collar - you can wear the collar up, fold the lapel over and close the neckline with those buttons.  All buttons are brassed metal with the RCMP emblem raised on the front, made by William Scully of Montreal.
