Military magicians Buzz Rickson’s have been doing their thing for decades. And their thing is high quality, historically accurate, stitch perfect reproductions of classic American denim, military, sportswear, and workwear garments. With a heavy focus on US military items from WWII-Vietnam, you can expect a great garment and the historical clout that goes with it.
Here we’ve got the US Army Tropical Combat Coat or ‘Jungle Jacket’ as it’s often referred to. The exposed buttons on the pockets denote it as the first pattern issued during the early years of the Vietnam conflict, often worn by special forces or advisory units. Undoubtedly a design classic and incredibly functional piece of military clothing which set the stage for countless imitations, this is the true original.
Featuring four buttoned bellows pockets, waist adjuster tabs, internal gas flap, and epaulets, the Tropical Combat Coat is made in Japan from 5.5 oz. OG107 100% cotton. With the added bonus of period-correct Peanuts patches, Charlie Brown and the whole gang are going to be after one of these.
