Soviet WW2 Political Commissar Tunic, a SUPERB quality Reproduction in LARGE SIZE. The tunic is of pre-WW2 design, but it was used throughout the war by political operatives and top echelon of the Soviet government.
You can see Stalin, Beria and others wearing a tunic just like this in numerous photos, posters and documentary films of the period! The tunic is made in fine olive drab wool gabardine with quality silk liner. The materials appear to be of 1960s-70s vintage, so even though this is a replica, it is entirely possible that it was commissioned by a WW2 veteran who once wore a tunic like this, possibly for a Victory anniversary celebration.It could also be made for a movie or theatrical production, although there are no movie studio stamps on the inside. The buttons are ORIGINAL brass buttons from the 50s, correct type for the uniform. The tunic is extremely well tailored, clearly a custom-made piece, not a mass produced item.
The size is about US L to XL. Chest measures about 46" with 27 ½" sleeve from shoulder seam to cuff, 30 from top of the collar in the back to the bottom of the tunic. The tunic is in GREAT Condition, shows only mild age, no soiling, heavy wear or moth damage.
