The Academy Coat

The Army-Navy Game.
Both West Point (the United States Military Academy), and the Navel Academy (United States Naval Academy) have long histories steeped in tradition and service. Candidates for admission must apply to the academy and receive a nomination, usually from a member of Congress. To say that the Cadets and Midshipmen at these institutions are goal-oriented and committed would be an understatement.
There is that certain, hard to define thing about men and woman in full dress uniform. Is it simple elegance? Refinement? Panache? We couldn't decide but we knew that a coat made from either charcoal grey or navy blue wool with brass ball buttons a center stripe of black or red wool and a stand-up collar would certainly make a statement.
We also knew that we had to make both color combinations. There is, always has been and, we suppose, always will be a healthy rivalry between the Army and the Navy. The choice is yours to make. Your dog will appreciate the warmth of either.
They're striking up the band to begin the parade.
