Vintage 80s M-65 Woodland Camo Field Coat Army Military Jacket XS X-Short
The M-65 field coat was first issued to the U.S. Armed Services in 1965 as a replacement for the M-51 field coat. The M-65 represented the culmination of field coat design, drawing on the technological developments of the M-43 and M-51 field coats used in WWII and Korea. The M-65 also used the covered zipper and snap front closure from the M-51 that allowed soldiers to crawl on their stomachs without the jacket opening and snagging on obstacles.
Alpha Industries is an American clothing manufacturer founded 1959 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Initially a contractor to the United States military, it is fair to say they know a thing or two about military garb.
This is a vintage US Army M-65 jacket with a button detachable liner. The labels date the jacket to 1985 and the liner to 1983. The manufacturer was Golden MFG Co. Made in USA, this is an iconic field jacket.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion, and discolouration throughout. There is a hole in the centre of the liner and the back neck label of the jacket has split at the bottom. Freshly laundered 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.
