Post Punk Raincoat?

US Army Trenchcoat the ultimate post-punk clothing item
If you want an iconic item of clothing that to me shouts post punk then it has to be the ag-274 US army raincoat. They were a must-have item for us fans of the Ants and Joy Division - both Adam and Ian Curtis (below) wore them and of course I had one too... the above link is to one on ebay - they are to be found there reasonably regularly but they are getting scarcer to find these days. Here's a pic of Adam Ant wearing one.
This link shows them in their full colour glory - a light olive colour. Ideal for putting badges on...
