This vintage Swedish M59 military field jacket is perfect for a relaxed, utility inspired look. Great on their own or for layering, these also look great with the sleeves rolled. Featuring buttons with Three Crowns (Swedish: Tre Kronor), which is the national emblem of Sweden, and an internal Three Crown stamp with the jacket dated 1961. Made in Sweden.
Used and in fair to good vintage condition with general heavy signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration throughout along with some marks. Upper arm sleeve patches have been removed leaving visible lines and some buttons are heavily tarnished with some fraying underneath where the buttons are attached. Also some fraying to the cuff ends. If you are looking for a well worn vintage M59 then this is the one for you. Please see all images.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear and will not smell like new, 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.
