These are our freshly designed M-1942 paratrooper jump suit jackets. We have relied heavily upon reference material and where possible, original examples to mimic the sizing, feel and material of the original outfit.
Our reproductions are 100% cotton in the correct khaki colour. The material is lightweight enough for the summer months but rugged enough to last. Canvas reinforcement is present to the elbows and pocket lining, with correct three lines of stitching. Pocket positioning has been determined from original examples and have the correct arrangement of popper fasteners. Two zips are present to the knife pocket that sits on the centre of the chest. Method of attachment of the belt is also from an original example as well as the triangles of stitching to the slit on the rear. Correct detailing on the label.
True to life, the jackets are a close fit, so order one size larger if you are between sizes.
This listing is for the jacket only but we also sell these combined with the trousers.
Garrison Cap not included within the package, but are for sale on our website.
