A rugged, utilitarian field jacket, the original men's M-51 was standard US-military issue in the 1950s and '60s. During this time period, most of the airbases in Great Britain were jointly manned by both USAF and RAF personnel. It became common practice for the US airmen to modify and trade their military-issued jackets with the airmen of the RAF. This field coat is the result of one such modification. With the addition of a steerhide suede shooting patch, removable mouton collar, and leather belt, this M-51 went from the ranks to the field, becoming a practical everyday coat with shooting-coat functionality. Shoulder epaulettes, four exterior, two interior pockets. Internal waist drawcord. In olive. Nylon/cotton shell. Cotton lining. Dry clean. New York City, New York.
Sizes: M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52); about 32" long in size medium.
