For sale is the following item. Price includes USPS shipping to the CONUS.

Military Surplus M-65 Fishtail Parka - $200
Color: Olive Drab
Measurements:
  • Size: Small (Note: While labeled a small, it fits like an XL. This size is relatively difficult to find.)
  • Length (from shoulder to bottom hem): ~34"
  • Shoulder to shoulder: ~23"
  • Pit to pit: ~21"
  • Sleeve (shoulder to sleeve hem): ~24.5"
Description: Deadstock military surplus fishtail parka. Never worn outside. PLEASE NOTE MEASUREMENTS - this jacket runs extremely large and the hood was designed to accommodate a combat helmet. For reference in the fit pics, I'm 6'1" @ 180 pounds.

As seen in photos below, liner was manufactured by Case, Inc. and the jacket was manufactured by Centre Mfg. Co. Inc.

The hood has been re-trimmed with real fox fur through Fishtailparkas.com (http://www.fishtailparkas.com/Wolf_Fur_Hood_Service.html ). This service alone cost me $90. Fur is super soft and luxe.

Hopefully if you're looking to purchase this jacket you're aware of the history of this model of jacket. My own tastes have changed since purchasing and I just don't expect to ever wear it.
