Genuine US Military issue

A solid, heavily used second pattern HBT jacket from the late World War 2 era. These jackets were worn by US troops from 1943 until the end of WW2 and throughout the Korean War. 

There were three specifications of the 2nd pattern, 45B, 45C, and 45D, each with various design nuances. They were produced in colours OD-8 and later, OD-7, but each exhibited a spectrum of hues depending on the manufacturer - some appearing more greenish and others more brownish. This example is a 45D with a gas flap, centre-pleated pockets, and metal '13-Star' buttons.

Made from a soft selvedge cotton herringbone twill fabric with two massive chest pockets for about as many personal effects as you'll ever need.

Distressed with real wear - All buttons, fittings and fixtures are present. Sold as seen.
