Stunning Reproduction Of The M51 Mod Fishtail Parka Coat

From Only £105 | Available In Olive Drab Or Black

This is a stunning remake of the classic M-1951 Mod Fishtail Parka. We tested the competition by literally buying a parka from every supplier we came across. Some were half decent, some were complete rubbish, but they all had silly defects which made them not right. Why try and replicate the most iconic coat on the planet and get silly things wrong? No, we could not understand it neither. Anyway, this is by far the best currently on the market within this price range. Yes, there are a few alterations that could be made to improve the coat further, but the most important component, the material, is spot on. Most are plain cotton, but authentic U.S. Military parka's were a cotton and nylon mix, known as cotton twill, or poplin. It is not produced these days and therefore is not readily available. Hence the reason as to why most High Street versions are plain cotton. The material has also been water repellent (Quarpel) treated which is another vital element missed by many. Quite simply this is a beautiful coat which comes complete with an authentic M65 parka liner which is warm, quilted and detachable.

UPDATE: 15th February 2024 - We have a supplier issue with regards to the winter green M51 hoods so at present, we are not sure as to when they will be available again. We have a few real fur hoods left at present. The black M51 hoods are still available. M51 parka coats come with a plain hood which is permanently fixed to the outer shell so there is still a hood. We will update as soon as we know more.

From only £105, grab yourself a brand new parka and save £££'s compared to buying an authentic M-1951 fishtail parka.

We also offer a customised QUADROPHENIA PARKA based on this classic M-1951 parka.
