Service Chore Coat | Black | Knickerbocker MFG. Co.Knickerbocker
New York, N.Y.
Inspired by the USMC N-3 Utility Fatigue coats, our Knickerbocker Service Chore Coat is a Knickerbocker classic. For authenticity sake we hit up our friends in Japan for yardage on their shuttle loomed, sulfur dyed, herringbone cotton twill. A twill almost identical in comparison to that of the French & USMC coats. For the buttons we brought in the iconic laurel wreath, single star, tack buttons, which were prominently used throughout USMC wear as a symbol of good luck.
