This is a vintage Swiss Army salt & pepper denim military worker style jacket with button front storm flap fastening, two chest patch pocket, with a tough and durable denim base. Made in Switzerland for their military circa 1970s.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration. There are some small marks throughout. There are some darn stitch repairs to the front right under the pocket. The rear waist hooks have tarnished. Overall a cracking jacket with a great washed look and bags of character. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

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.
