Men's 90s Military Jacket Vintage USN Officers Navy Mess Captain 43 Reg VFG
This US Navy Officer's Mess jacket dates to 1994. The mess jacket is the military equivalent of black tie. It is single breasted, with notched lapels. The body is fitted and cut like an evening dress coat, but without the tails. Per my research, the four rows of gold braid on each sleeve plus the star denotes a captain's rank. The jacket is fully lined with an inner pocket on each side.
