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 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 good vintage condition considering the age of circa 80 years, with general signs of wear and abrasion. There are some marks to the lower back internal lining towards the hem and to the back left hem of the jacket (as worn). There are some moth nibbles to the wool lining at the collar but they are not overly noticeable, and there is a circular hole approx 2cm to the internal front hem lining. Not quite perfect but still an amazing jacket that has stood the test of time. Steamed and ready for a new owner.


COLOUR:
Olive.


FABRIC:
Cotton Canvas Outer; Wool Lining.


FEATURES:
- 8 button double breasted front
- Under collar throat tab 
- 2 lower flap entry pockets
- Waist adjustable belt
- Button adjustable cuffs
- Back neck hanger loop
- Fully lined

SIZE: The jacket includes no size label but fits like a M / L (UK Sizing) with a 48in full external chest and the overall fit, which was originally designed to be worn as an overcoat with a generous cut.
