This is a vintage Swiss Army salt & pepper denim military worker style jacket with two button entry chest patch pockets, internal rear waist drawcord, with a tough and durable denim base. Made in Switzerland for their military circa 1960s.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear throughout. One chest pocket and one two front buttons have previously been changed to plastic. The top edge of the right (as worn) pocket flap has an area of fraying and the metal buttons/ rear waist hooks have tarnished, and there have been some stitch repairs to the upper back area, all adding to the character. Freshly steamed and ready for its new owner.
All my 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.
