Among vintage military jackets, the M-1951 (or M51), commonly known as the fishtail parka, has more variations and riffs across menswear than anything else. It's really the 2nd generation of the style, made into a system piece (originally issued with a fur hood and removable liner). The fishtail was intended to be tied around soldiers legs for additional cold-weather protection.
These became the signature garment of the mods in the 1960s due to ample supply in post-war Europe and the full-body coverage offered by the parka - essential for riding your Vespa.
The Real McCoy's version replicates the first year of production of the M51, the only year to be made with a heavy cotton reverse sateen using their custom fabric. All of the trims are period correct replicas down to the zipper and thread.
Runs large, meant to be worn oversize. We suggest going true to size for the intended fit. Wash cold, hang dry.
