The M-65 has become the staple design for an Army Field Jacket, in retrospect that is because countless brands have made M-65 inspired jackets. The original like this one was made famous by Robert de Niro wearing it in Taxi Driver. This jacket has since made its way into the streets. The jackets we sell are all originals from 1965 onwards. The jacket succeeded the M-51 which was worn in Korea, of which we also sometimes have a few specimens. The M-65 is the Vietnam Field Jacket. A comfortable fit is combined with a great design. So both looks and functionality are taken care of. This specific jacket features a subdued Special Forces patch as well as faded name tag. The jacket has a few holes in the liner that are - if wanted - easily patched up. The backside of this jacket is really interesting with a few sewn together segments of fabric, most likely to tailor it to size.
