Vintage Men's US Military Wool Field Jacket OD
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - PREVIOUSLY OWNED. Once they are gone, we may not get any more. Sold As Is - NON-REFUNDABLE.
Vintage military jacket - no tag inside to specify date. Jacket in beautiful shape except small amount of white stuff on one sleeve - like someone put their elbow in some spots of paint. I don't know if the white will come off.
The Eisenhower jacket, or "Ike" jacket, is a type of waist length jacket developed for the U.S. Army during the later stages of World War II. It was intended to be worn on its own or as an insulating layer beneath the M-43 Field Jacket. Since then there have multiple updates to the design of the field jacket. To this day, uniforms of the U.S. Border Patrol, along with most allied agencies within its broader, umbrella department, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (USCBPA) and the National Park Service (NPS) have a dress jacket that is nearly identical to the Ike jacket original.
