M-65 is sold - thanks! This is a Vietnam-era (from what I've been told) army-issue M-65 field jacket. It's tagged Long Small, which means it was issued to soldiers with 33-37" chests and 5'11"+ heights. This one obviously has more character than a coat you'd buy at the mall or an H&M (read: some pulled seams where the patches were, worn pocket corners, etc). It's warm as it is, but you can buy a button-in liner from any mil-surplus store for extra warmth. I bought this for $60 at the mil-surplus store last fall and it looks like they're selling for $20-50 on ebay depending on color, size, and condition. This one is the most popular color, in good shape for a 30+ year-old coat, and a slim-fitting size, but I'm letting it go for $25 shipped. My paypal address is brozek(at)polisci.wisc.edu and I'll ship the next business day after receiving payment.
