The First Special Service Force (FSSF) was an elite World War 2 Canadian/American military unit that pioneered many of the skills that characterise the Special Forces of today. This is a high quality reproduction of the third type FSSF combat smock, identified by the real fur trim around the hood but not the cuffs, the buttoned neck, and the buttoned flaps over the slanted openings to the front pockets.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and marks throughout. A great repro smock with real fur trim and bags of character. Steamed and ready for a new owner.
All our used listings - unless otherwise stated - have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
