Here is a potential problem. You want an authentic M-1951 parka but the ones you are coming across are super beat up, are; missing buttons; adjustable strings; have a rusty zipper; or have that smell.
Here is the problem solver—The Real McCoy’s MJ17118 M-1951 Parka.
Renowned for their attention to detail whilst manufacturing casual, workwear, and military clothing, The Real McCoys has proven once again that if you want the perfect historically correct reproduction, there is no substitute.
Made from cotton poplin and featuring wool-lined pocket bags and TRM’s own original wire zipper, you will find that every detail of this jacket is up to, or from another perspective, down to the original standards of the high-quality, yet cheaper replacement to the M-1948.
That’s right, I am talking about the runoff fabric at the ends of some seams. Because the thing is, not only were the details of the original captured in this replica, but the attitude as well. They were made for everything besides arguably appearance,—in a time of war—when a rogue thread was not an issue when it came to quality control.
And although the circumstances where this will be worn has done a complete flip, the spirit does not waver.
