vintage leather trench

I have had this vintage oxblood leather double-breasted trench for years and maybe worn it 6 times. It's just plain too big and I don't like the look on me. I haven't given it up before now because it is in perfect condition. There is one scratch the size of a pinhead on one shoulder seam (can provide photos if you like). Otherwise, all seams are strong, the lining is perfect (no holes, no pulling), the buttonholes are reinforced, all original matching buttons are still on the coat including the interior one (to secure the double-breasted style) and one extra button, tacked down low on the lining, in case you ever lose one. There is a matching adjustable belt, adjustable straps on the sleeves, even a little strap and buckle to close the top of the collar up around your neck.

measurements (laid flat, so double these):
bust (armpit to armpit) 19.5 inches/48.75 cm
waist (on the seam/where the belt is at): 18.5 inches/46.25 cm
hip (measured at top of pocket detail): 20 inches/50 cm
hip (measured at bottom of pocket detail): 21.5 inches/53.75 cm

$25 includes shipping to continental US; other, please ask. Winner will be randomly selected on March 7; or, if no one has claimed it by then, the first commenter.

Hi anne! Well, a quick check of the US International postage rates, it looks like it will be at least another $25 US to ship. (yikes!) Would you still be interested? If the random number generator picks you, I can verify the cost at the post office first, to find out what the difference officially is.

Also, Orida7 and Anne B., will you both please include your email addresses so I can get ahold of you if you win? thanks!
