M-65 Field Jacket (1st Pattern with shoulder loops)

Out of stock

We are very proud to offer an exact reproduction of the US Army's "Coat, Man's Field, with Hood", more commonly known as the M-65 Field Jacket, as made in 1968 by Rolane Sportswear Inc., who was one of the original three named contractors of 1967 and a prominent manufacturer who kept winning contracts every year until 1972.

Made according to MIL-C-43455 specification in the OG-107 shade (olive green) with an outer shell constructed with "NYCO" fabric, a durable (225 lbs breaking strength) nylon/cotton sateen combination, quarpel treated to be water repelent and wind resistant.

The coat is a lined hip length design, having a bi-swing back; convertible standup collar with adjustable tab closure, four buttonholes and horizontal slide fastener closure on undercollar (exit for hood); attached hood (concealed between body layers) with drawcord adjustment; two piece set-in sleeves, cuff gussets with adjustable tab closure, and hand shield extension; shoulder epaulets with button closure; slide fastener fly front closure with snap fasteners; two bellows type breast pockets and two lower inside hanging pockets with snap fastener flap closures; waist and hem drawcords; and inside buttons for attaching of insulating liner (not included).

Our reproduction features:

  • NOS fabrics (NYCO for the outer shell and Oxford Cloth for the lining).
  • NOS 1960s Scovill main zipper with wire stirrup pull (silver color).
  • NOS 1960s Scovill hood zippper closed end (silver color).
  • NOS RAU FASTENER Ligne 20 ring type snaps.
  • NOS 4 hole M3738 buttons.
  • NOS drawcords.

The M-65 Jacket may appear to be a simple design, yet is a highly complex construction requiring 139 separate sewing operations to make. It is a comfortable and functional coat, iconic and instantly  
recognisable, probably one of the best made garments in American history.

It is a full fit jacket, designed to be oversized to allow soldiers to carry ammunition and all their gear, so taking a size down is highly recommended.
