50s Vintage M1951 M51 Field Jacket - X-Large

Regular price £0.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Genuine US Military issue

Dated 1953

The M-1951 field jacket carried over a number of design aspects and features from its predecessor, the M-1943. The overall basic design is extremely similar, with only a few key elements that were added or improved upon. The main front closure is secured with a brass zip, covered by a snap-fastener-lined flap and the pockets are also secured with snap-fasteners.

The shell is a treated 9-ounce wind-resistant cotton sateen in Olive Green 107 (OG-107) and the jacket is lined with a cotton poplin fabric. There are buttons that accommodate a removable button-in insulated liner that can be attached in colder weather. During the 1960s, many higher-ranking officers preferred the sharper look of the M-1951 in comparison to the then-standard M-1965 jacket.

Named to Josephson under the collar and the jacket retains an early stamped 'US ARMY' branch tape. In a desirable, large size.

Overall excellent condition with minor signs of wear - The contract stamp is present and legible. All buttons, zips, fittings and fixtures are present and working. There is some very light discolouration as seen.

Labelled large long, but will comfortably fit a UK x-large
