First introduced in 1965, the M-65 field jacket is one of the most iconic designs created by the U.S. military. Post-Vietnam war, the jacket was co-opted by the anti-war movement and eventually seen in countless films and other pop culture mediums. Buzz Rickson’s rendition is, as always, perfectly executed. The cotton/nylon OG107 fabric, as well as the correct labels, buttons, zipper, drawstrings, etc. are all reproduced as accurately as possible. This jacket still looks every bit as stylish as it did in the 70s when it was worn by everyone’s favourite antihero, Travis Bickle, in Scorsese’s “Taxi Driver,” and it will continue to be a classic outerwear option for a long time.
