The M-65 evolved from the M-1943 Field Coat via the M-1951, and was in service from 1965 until 2009. The color is officially “Olive Green 107”. Most importantly, it is the source code for a vast swath of modern menswear, with variants appearing from every brand, and in every mutation you can imagine.

From the M-1951, the major changes were a zipped collar (for a separate stowable hood), snap closures on the 4 main pockets, and velcro cuffs. The collar transitioned from a shirt-style collar to an upright collar. Epaulets appeared on later editions, but the 1st model M-65 did not have them.

The Real McCoy’s 1st Model M-65 is the finest expression of the first jackets off the line in 1965 with all the features intact and some improvements. The shell is 100% cotton, rather than the original 50% cotton, 50% nylon, with a much nicer hand to it. It also features period-correct wire zipper pulls on a brass zipper.

Oh, and those triangle inserts in the cuffs? Those are for snapping to your gloves in case of radioactive fallout.

Fit is true to US size. Size down for a slim fit. Check the size chart for actual sizing. No shrink expected with cold wash and hang dry.
