Based on a British classic issued during the WWI and WWII by the British army to protect the troops against the cold but allowing freedom of movement. These garments generally had four buttons and were lined with khaki wool. They were practical, hardwearing and extremely appreciated by officers and other ranks alike.
We have issued 2 versions, both in vegetable tanned cowhide leather with different linings. One with Khaki 100% wool serge fabric like the original and a light weight version with Herringbone Twill Camo lining. With the "Army" weave and the right number of colors, 5 on the green side and 4 on the brown, this camo fabric was most widely issued at the request of General Douglas MacArthur to Marines in the Pacific theater of WWII.
