Italian Field Grey Military Trench Coat – Men's - Unissued
Stylish men's field grey (grey with blueish tinge) military trench coat originally from the Italian army. Made from wind-proof gabardine woven cotton which is great for keeping heat in. These trench coats are a double breasted design with grey plastic buttons and shoulder epaulettes. Other features of this trench coat include:
- A zipped in quilted liner that provides extra warmth in the winter, and can then be removed for use in milder weather, making this coat extremely versatile.
- Two large practical waist pockets.
- Waterproofing on the shoulder cape (area of extra material seen on the shoulders).
- Italian military field grey colour which has a slight blue/green tinge to it.
- This item is in an excellent great condition. Never issued.
This men's trench coat is designed to be worn over a suit or a dress uniform, as such it is a generous cut to account for layering and movement.

Italian grey military trench coats for men for sale from Forces Uniform and Kit, the genuine army surplus clothing company
I bought 2 coats from this site - the other was a green Spanish trench - and I must say I prefer the other coat. This one was in cosmetically good condition, but showed it’s age when two buttons fell off within 2 days of wear. It does come with some spares though. Also, perhaps because of the colour, the synthetic nature of the fabric is very obvious. I also regret not buying a size larger than usual - it seems the Italian preference for close fitting clothing extends to their military attire. For all the criticism, the detachable inner lining is a very nice touch.
Very good quality coat , well constructed and a perfect fit , a complete steel at the price and would recommend to any and everyone.
no way are you ever getting this coat back i love it.i wore it to my sisters funeral monday before last it is smart and warm so thanks well done guys.regards paul hartles.
First Class product....Very pleased with it. Thank you to the previous reviewers who i thoroughly agree with.
Having read the reviews, which sounded too good to be true, I 'took a chance' and placed my order. I was not disappointed. The quality of the gaberdine material is exceptional. The buttons, which some reviewers criticised, are perfect as far as my wife and I are concerned and well sewn on. It is a very nice shade of grey with a touch of blue (definitely not green as someone said). It arrived with some creasing but I put it on a hanger and fired steam from the iron at the creases. They were all gone in 15 minutes but I left it hanging for a couple of days. Shortly after it arrived we went to The Hague in Holland where it was 4 degrees with a cold breeze. The coat reacted very well as it kept me warm so no problem. I am a 42 chest but ordered the 44 which fits well over shirt and pullover. Fantastic product.
Cut in that military style that encourages you to stand up straight with your shoulders back, this is made from a good strong cloth, is warm and robust and pairs well with a suit. The buttons are attached in a somewhat flimsy manner, but easily reinforced with a needle and some thread. The inner padded lining zips out for summer or to be washed separately. Mine was more of a green grey than a blue grey, your mileage may vary.
Overall, give it a steam iron when it arrives, and leave it to hang for a few days, and you're good to go. Also, plan for it to arrive quickly. This team doesn't dawdle.
This is an excellent coat. I bought the 42" chest and took the zipped lining out and this lets me where it with a waistcoat and jacket underneath very comfortably. It arrived very quickly, no odour but a little creased so I ironed it (steam iron with a cloth over the coat to avoid shines) then hung it and sprayed it with Fabreze, just to freshen it up a bit. Yes, the buttons are not the best, but these can be changed, but at this price for this quality it is still a brilliant coat and a very good service.
This is an amazing coat, in immaculate condition. It arrived with a slight odour but this was from storage. I aired the coat for a day or two, and I couldn’t smell it anymore.
The coat fits really well. Using the internal quilted jacket has kept me warm on cold December days. I haven’t had to use it in rain yet.
Like the previous reviewer, I am a 40" chest so I got the 42" chest size so that a jacket can be worn underneath and I also got the tall length to be just right for me - I'm 5' 11" and the coat falls just below me knees. The coat came with plenty of creases in it from the packaging, but careful application of a steam iron got all the creases out - a towel was put into the shoulder area with one hand with the other hand holding the steam iron to iron out the creases around the shoulder. After about half an hour of ironing, it was transformed with the only thing detracting slightly from the appearance being the buttons as they are very shiny plastic ones. Maybe at some stage I may replace them, but for now I am quite happy with the existing ones. The only fault I found that was easily fixed was that one epaulet button had been secured through the detachable lining, making it non-detachable. I just removed the button and sewed it on again underneath the lining. For the price it is impossible to expect perfection and for that reason I am giving it 5 stars. Many thanks for a top quality gaberdine raincoat that would cost a great deal more on the high street.
This is a well designed and well made (with one strange exception) coat. My chest is 40 inches. I got the 42 inch size, I wear a jacket under it and it fits fine. I found the 'tall' length right for a trench coat. The removable lining is warm and well secured. I give it 3 out of 5 because of 2 shortcomings and these are
1. The colour is described as 'grey colour which has a slight blue/green tinge to it'. The coat is green. Not grey, and there is no blue in it under any light. It is a green coat. I like the colour but it is not what you see in the photo or read in the description.
2. The buttons. Do Italian soldiers have to sew their buttons when their coats are issued? Probably not, which makes me wonder what the garment has to do with any country's military, apart from the colour (green), and the cut. Two of the buttons fell off the first time I wore it out and I am lucky I noticed and retrieved them. So, rather than returning the coat, because I like it otherwise I will buy a matching thread (green), and sew all the buttons myself, slightly increasing the price and reducing the bargain.
In summary: apart from the loose buttons this is a quality coat and cheap in 2019 at £35 plus shipping.
I bought this coat for my partner who has always struggled to find one that looks smart, is fit for purpose and at a good price. This has ticked all 3 of those boxes. It’s the perfect coat. I was shocked at how heavy it was when it arrived, the stitching is crisp and clean, the colour is very unique and at a price point that is unbelievable. If this were to hit public mass market, it would be worth at least 3x the amount. My partner is over the moon at the quality and at how well it fits him. He is 6ft3 broad build so I got him a large with a tall length and it fits perfectly. It can pull off both casual and smart occasions too which is what the market currently lacks. It is fit for purpose with the weatherproofing on the shoulders as well as having a removable inner layer for Spring-Autumn time making it a year-round garment. Thoroughly impressed with this as well as this company. I ordered this less than 48 hours ago as I write this and it showed up this afternoon. I’ve never used this company before and so wasn’t sure of what we would be getting (if we got anything at all!), but my expectations have been totally exceeded. I am a very happy customer and proud to say that I’m now a loyal one too. Amazing.
Arrived very quickly and was just as ordered. the coat is warm and comfortable but could not be worn over a jacket,
however with the Gillet fitted it is warm enough for that not to matter. A nice looking coat at a great price can't be bad.
I love the colour, style, and design of the jacket, the only slight downside is that the arms could have done with being perhaps just an inch longer - although it's still perfectly wearable! As always the delivery was really quick, which was nice.
I want to know whether this coat is new or used?
Great coat. Perfect fit. But no way can you wear a jacket underneath.
Excellent coat, well made lining and removable gillet both very nice features.
Ordered Wednesday arrived next day so pretty impressive. Lovely quality cotton needs an airing as it’s been stored. I’m going to change the buttons but it’s beautifully cut and fully lined more of a green grey than a blue grey in colour but I’m delighted with it
Being Italian this is an ex army coat but with style. I'd say it's pretty unusual in this day & age. They got the size absolutely right after I sent them my measurements, and the service was excellent. The only negative was that I had to re-sew the buttons on cos they came off immediately.
The coat is of high quality, it was creased on arrival but easily steamed out. I bought the 42 chest, regular length (I am 5ft 8) and it fits beautifully. Delivery was really prompt (2 days). I would definitely use the company again.
Swapped the coat as it was too small and received the replacement within few days. Perfect fit. Both coats were in perfect condition and ideal as a mac / trench coat.
Coat arrived a couple of days after ordering which was brilliant given the time of year. Coat is well made, and have had numerous compliments from friends and colleagues regarding its quality and fit. For record, I ordered XL Tall and fit just allows for a suit jacket underneath. I wear a 44/46 suit and am 6' 2" and around 16 stone (1.88m and 102kg).
Delivered within a few days of ordering.
Really impressed with the quality of the coat, ordered a size larger than normal and fits as I wished and being Italian cut quite slimming.
Had a number of complements on the coat. Highly recommend and will no doubt order further clothing in the future.
The coat arrived a few days after my order which was pleasing. However after I tried it on my pleased persona improved further I found it to be a quality piece of clothing . Well fitting and warm on a harsh winters day in December , It is also a smart lookiing coat. I told a friend I was buying a trench coat and when it arrived he commented on how good it looked and for 25 quid its a steal.
This item arrived promptly and appears to be unissued. I am a stocky size 42 (US) and was concerned that a 42 short would be too tight in the chest. It allows plenty of room, even wearing a suit jacket underneath. I am having it tailored to fit (sleeves and for length) but that is not unusual for me, nothing off the rack fits right. Pleased and will probably purchase from these folks again
This is better than I could have wished for. It is a good quality, medium weight coat, which is warmer than expected with the lining in. Really pleased
The coat was brand new and heavy enough to keep out the cold wind. Also very stylish. In fact, a work colleague couldn't believe the price: she thought it was a minimum of £75! I bought one size up and it fitted perfectly. A word of warning though, make sure you sew the buttons on firmly before you wear it. Three dropped off on the first day I wore it,but fortunately I retrieved two, so disaster averted. I would definitely recommend this coat
Wow, what can I say. I bought this coat for my son. I'm usually a bit wary of buying clothes online but he really liked the look of it so I agreed. It was the best purchase ever, the coat was exactly as described. It was in excellent condition and really is a bargain. The fit was great, we had to buy long as it was the only length left in my son's size but actual that worked out well because it turned out to be a decent length. Thanks for excellent product and for excellent service. We will certainly buy from you guys again.
A very nice piece of kit indeed. I have owned a number odf trenchcoats over the years, from the department stored specials (M&S, Debenhams), through military (contemporary German, 1950s USA), and big names (several Aquascutum, Grenfell and Burberry coats). This coat compares favourably with the best of them. Certainly as good as the increasingly hard to find US military 1950s item, and in practical terms as serviceable as the Burberrys (vastly better value for money than a contemporary Burberry). Unfortunately I had to send mine back for refund because, despite ordering the largest size, it was simpyl too small for me, but that's the reality of military surplus for us larger guys. My sole reason for returning was sizing: had a larger size been available, I'd be wearing it now.
As an aside, an excellent company with which to deal: coat was shipped promptly and my refund issued very quickly after I returned it. I would not hesitate to buy from them again.
Bought this coat two weeks ago, what a bargain it is. Lots of friends have remarked on it and would love to purchase a similar overcoat, i have gladly passed on the relevant information to help them in their quest.
I have yet to wear this in anger (weather not bad enough) but the fit is good, even for someone who is 188cm tall and overweight (I went for the XXL). Excellent quality and unbelievable price. Never worn. The service was excellent as well. If I had two bodies, I'd get another.
Weighty, excellent quality coat. Fits well. 5’8”, athletic build. Bought a 40”, short. Came with a snap on hood folded in the pocket. Thermal liner zips out nicely to reveal a well finished lining and left breast pocket. Quite creased when arrived. Did not drop out when him on a hanger for a week but creases came out excellently well with a hand held steamer. Would definitely recommend and would buy again. Good delivery as well. Also very helpful with a last minute query and delivery alteration. Many thanks.
I have jusr received the trenchcoat and am amazed at the quality. It is beautifully made and the quilted zip out lining makes it a true all seasons overcoat. I did size up as I will be wearing this over a jacket and it is a perfect fit. Extraordinary value for money and very stylish. Thank you.
Great quality trench coat. I don't like the buttons that much, but they are easily changeable, and it's just my personal preference. It also has a detachable cold-weather lining. Product was brand new.
I'm 190cm tall and relatively thin (90kg), so I don't have a big chest. Size M fits me perfectly.
Only thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have a belt so the fit is a bit awkward for me, but I guess some belt loops can be fitted and a belt found somewhere.
Excellent quality. Brand new and unissued (still had manufacturer's QC Inspector's ticket in the pocket)
I ordered the largest/longest size available to fit my 6' 16 stone frame... it does!
Next day delivery as well
Easy to use website, ordering and delivery was excellent.
Quality and fit far exceeded expectation and the coat had never been worn. After reading comments from others purchased a 40" (size up) and was perfect. Detachable lining / hood are useful additions. A quick blast with a steam iron and ready to wear! Don't be scared to purchase.
Quite pleased with this coat. Nice material and lining. Not actually worn it yet, but it will make a good alternative to the usual parka coats that I wear.
On the "down side", it does come up rather small - tight under the arms and across the shoulders. I bought double XL (my usual coat size, which always fits me) and probably needed a bigger size, but there isn't one. I'm big, but not huge, wouldn't class my coat as double XL, but will persevere with it. Price was good value for money.
Brilliant value, really classy coat brand new, looks great after steam iron!
Marvellous would buy again!
Superb quality. Had to send first one back as tight across shoulders. Next size up just right and I am over 6' 3" tall. ( raincoat available in 3 lengths ). What a good firm to deal with, their service matches the quality of the rain coat.
Great coat Italian Quality made I would buy again recommended.
I can recommend this Coat, it is absolute quality, superb detachable lining. Amazing value. It took a few days to arrive, but well worth the wait. The material and tailoring is excellent.
It is well cut and looks more expensive than it is, and suits me very well.
However the zip holding in the winter lining broke the first time I tried it, and the top button on the front came off the first time I tried to button it.
Great coat, great price, shame about the fastening sewing.
Good stuff - in fact so good a mate decided they wanted one as well - so I bought another
Should've seen my mate's face when I told him what it cost. Excellent quality, unbeatable for the price, and I wholeheartedly recommend this coat. Warm, but with removable quilt inner so that it can be worn during the warmer months. Labels mark it as "Guardia di Finanza", which after a little research turn out to be Italy's anti-smuggling and drugs force.
Superb quality. This coat would cost a substantial three figure sum on the High St. When I tell people it was only £25, they are amazed. Mine was brand new and unused.
Superb cut and quality of gaberdine. My wife likes how it makes me look quite dashing too! Highly recommended.
It's of high quality, my coat also has a waterproof hood, should be useful.
If we could know more about the era of this product, it would be even better, actually I can't recognize its history through the buttons.
Really pleased with the trench coat i have just purchased, i gave it to my son as a present and he was also delighted, excellent quality and great value for money.
