Buzz Rickson’s M-51 Fishtail Parka (Olive Drab)


This Buzz Rickson’s M-51 is an updated version of the M-48 pullover parka that had evolved since World War Ⅱ. To protect the U.S. Forces from this unprecedented cold battlefield, a layer system was employed so that the parka could be worn over ordinary equipment. While the shell of the initial model was made of thick cotton satin, it was changed to oxford cotton nylon from the 1952. Buzz Rickson’s M-51 is impressive not only due to it’s superlative craftsmanship but also due to specially curated, authentic materials.
