1950's British Royal Navy Fearnought Wool Work Deck Smock Anorak Jacket

0.00

An incredibly rare, and incredibly beautiful/ utilitarian 1950’s Royal Navy design. The FEARNOUGHT off-white wool work smock, designed for general work and labor in cold weather environments. The wool used (which is called fearnought wool) is extremely thick and warm and is more or less waterproof (and also incredibly flame resistant, which is another reason it was used aboard Royal Navy ships)

The elegant design is detailed with an angled rope and toggle throat latch, as well as an adjustable waist rope. Original tag is also intact and perfectly legible.

In addition to the rarity involved with this piece is the stunning condition it is in. It is totally unissued and without moth damage/ stains (nearly unheard of for a white wool garment of this age).

Approx size Medium to Large (though it is a smock, so it could easily fit a size small to large, depending on how one likes the fit)

pit to pit 25”
shoulder to shoulder (approx, raglan) 20”
shoulder to cuff (approx, raglan) 26”
shoulder to bottom 28”
