    Italian (or French) Wool Dress Coat

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this coat. It came out of a military surplus store with a tag that said Italian.

    The chevrons look to be Italian, but I don't know anything else about the coat.

    Looks to me like it could be a Carabinieri ( Italian police ) parade or official functions dress uniform.

    The chevrons look Italian; flaming bomb is a Carabinieri insignia , but have seen similar insignia used by the French army as well..
