http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-US-ARMY-Double-Breasted-HEAVY-WOOL-Military-COAT-Sz-38R-Sold-AS-IS-/150921754686?pt=Vintage_Men_s_Clothing&hash=item2323a3383e&nma=true&si=0ECXlx5CBv0DXwBE%2BxbOZqgaBFc%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

It looks like a pretty basic pattern, but I'm not sure how to get the front edge to slant like that, and I don't want to just start cutting!  Wink I've found some gorgeous 32-oz. wool which I'm hoping to dye, and I can't wait to get started!

Sadly your link doesn't go to the exact coat anymore. 

I did come across this pattern today  that might be similar to what you are looking for.

Really? How strange! It's there when I scroll down a little.  Huh Thanks for the pattern, though! I'll definitely keep it in mind.

The link too me to a vintage army coat. It's a typical man's double breasted coat. I'm not sure what you mean by slant front? Or maybe the link is taking me to a different coat?

Mccalls 5525 http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m5525-products-8074.php?page_id=911  is the ladies version of this classic coat. The difference is mens coat closes left over right, the ladies coat closes right over left.
