How to measure yourself for jacket ordering.

Please let us have the following 5 measurements before you order.

1. Your Height
2. Your Weight
3. Your Chest circumference (wearing a t-shirt only).

Use a measuring tape and measure around your chest (at nipples level).

4. Your Waist circumference (at belly button level).

5. Your Lower Waist circumference (at belt level).

With the arms relaxed and down at the side, measure around the shoulders just above the biceps. (Don’t take this measurement yourself, ask somebody else to help you so that you have both your arms down at the sides during measurement).

You are looking at the mother of all M-51 Fishtail Parka reproductions.

Adopted in 1951 by the US Army who spared no expense into making these excellent quality coats to protect its troops from the heavy winters of the Korean peninsula so they could win the fight against the commies.

The parka is a single breasted outer garment with hood and with epaulets and slide fastener front closure with snap fasteners, sleeves with adjustable cuffs, two slit type breast pockets with flap and snap fastener closure, waist and hem line drawcords, inside buttons for attachment of liner (not included) and buttons on the collar for attachment of fur ruffed hood (not included).

Our M-51 Fishtail Parka is of high-end quality, made according to the original MIL-P-11013 specification with cloth cotton-nylon, oxford, 5 ounce, in the olive green No. 107 shade. It features custom made mil. spec. buttons, Rau Fastener snaps and the super rare original NOS (New Old Stock) Talon #10 zipper with zinc teeth die-cast directly on the tape; we used the last available stock of these zippers in the world. Needless to say, with the addition of the NOS zipper the parka's value is easily greater than anyone else's using reproduction zippers.

The attention to detail and quality of production of this iconic piece of outerwear make it indistinguishable from the originals. The N.Y.Q.M.P.A. would have thought we stole them from their warehouse!!! 

Please note these are designed as an outer layer garment over several inner layers plus soldiers' gear and are correspondingly large. If you want to wear them as an ordinary coat they are about 2 sizes too large. So a Small is about a size Large, and the Medium is an X-Large, for example.
