Please, forgive the long, long delay in getting pictures to you of this jacket after the collar "surgery."These pictures were taken this afternoon because my wife wanted to get a picture of my facial hair prior to it's removal. It was a bit warmer today then it's been in a good while and I happened to be wearing the Pointer chore coat.- Ian
I don't know a lot about canvas weights, but I never considered the duck canvas thin on this jacket. I would guess that it's a medium weight. I can say that in photographs, I though the new jacket looked "stiff"...the duck canvas, but when I received the jacket I was surprised at how pliable and soft to the touch it was.Of course, the collar is too big and I had the tailor take 3/4 of an inch off of it.If you wash and dry the jacket, it shrinks, of course. So, I got my...
You're welcome. When I get a chance to have my wife take 3 or four pictures of me wearing it, I will post them. They will be taken inside, so they wont be great, but it should give you an idea. They will also show what the collar looks like after being professionally trimmed down. - Ian

If you get a size medium, you will have to wash it in hot water and dry it in order to shrink it, of course. If you don't do that, the medium will be to big on you. Like I mentioned, I washed and dried my coat/jacket twice. It may have shrunk enough after the first round, but I did it twice for good measure.In interest of full disclosure, the canvas isn't as stiff as it looks like it would be, in the photographs. So, in theory, a person could go down a size, if they never...

I purchased the unlined duck (canvas) chore coat a few months ago. I'm 5'7" and 150. I normally wear a size 38 suit jacket. I purchased it in size medium. It was washed in hot/warm water twice and dried twice. Since it's 100% cotton, it shrunk significantly, as you may expect. After all of that, it fits quite well. The sleeve length, etc. is nearly perfect. The one thing that I did do, after the washings, is I took the jacket to the tailor in order to have the collar...
Check out ebay for vintage M-65 field jackets. They were issued from 1965 until around 2000 (I think..maybe a bit later). On ebay search in Collectibles: Militaria. Start in the Vietnam section and work your way up to around the year 2000. Search either M65 (M-65) or M1965 (M-1965). Sometimes, people will list the M-65 Field Jacket in the Men's Vintage Clothing section, but you won't find anywhere near as many authentic M-65's listed there. You should certainly be able...
