This 1940s era Mackinaw Jeep Coat was issued initially in 1938, intended for cold weather use by troops who did not engage in much movement, such as drivers. This one is constructed from a less common white fabric, with replaced buttons and belt.

This first pattern jeep coat can be visually distinguished from its later counterparts because unlike the other variations, the first pattern jacket had a waist adjustable belt and a rounded collar. The shell is olive-drab coloured cotton poplin and the chest and shoulder widths were enlarged to permit it to be worn over layers of other clothing. The development of the superior M-1943 Field Jacket caused the Mackinaw jacket to be a limited standard item that was dropped when supplies were exhausted. 

CONDITION:
Used and in fair to good vintage condition considering its circa 80 years age, with heavy signs of wear, abrasion, discolouration and marks throughout. The cuffs have fraying and the back neck hanger loop has snapped. The front top two buttons are missing but this cannot be seen when the collar is worn down. Not quite perfect but still an amazing jacket that has stood the test of time. Freshly laundered and ready for a new owner.


COLOUR:
Off White.


FABRIC:
Cotton Canvas Outer; Wool Lining.


FEATURES:
- 6 button double breasted front
- Under collar throat tab 
- 2 lower flap entry pockets
- Waist adjustable belt
- Button tab cuffs
- Fully lined

SIZE: The jacket includes no size label and this fits like a S (UK Sizing) with a 42in full external chest measurement and the overall fit, which was originally designed to be worn as an overcoat with a generous cut.
