"Well done to all at Fishtail Parkas!"

"I gave you a pretty tough challenge and you came up trumps!I called with the order on Thursday pm requesting delivery for Tuesday am - just to make it interesting you had to also complete the real fur switch!!

Well you completed your mission perfectly as the coat arrived about 9.30 am on Tuesday.

Top job & a top PARKA - I couldn't have asked for more!"

Nigel Dibbo UK

"Fantastic looking piece of kit"

All the best,
Rob Holgate UK
"Brilliant"

Received my M-1951 Parka today.It fits perfectly for my requirements, i.e. to wear it over my business suit, to commute to work on my Scoot, just as we discussed and you promised.

It was more than I wanted to pay originally, but for a piece of history, born around the same time as me, it is worth every penny, and indeed more, (which I never ever admit)

Putting it on transports me to a different time and place, the fondly remembered past, recapturing some of my happy adolescent memories.

My wife will kill me for spending our hard earned, but , I can tell you, it is worth it. "Brilliant"

Thanks

"Hi Fishtail Parkas"

Just to let you know I received my parka just before lunch.

I am absolutely thrilled to bits with it....its all your advert said it would be.

I've made a comment on my Facebook wall about how pleased I am

I have a brand new Vespa LX50 in red with the full chrome kit fitted so the parka is gonna look really ace against the red (o:

Once again thanks very much

Regards
Jennie in Farnham, Surrey

M-1948 Fishtail Parka, The Big Daddy Of All Parkas.....


This is it, the mutts nuts, dogs bollox, the one and only...

The M-1948 is undoubtedly the most sought after fishtail parka in the world, even back in the early 60's, these were like rockin horse shite and everybody wanted one.


M-48 Fishtail Parka


Today, you are looking at a piece of history and the ultimate statement of originality...

Not to mention, the last handful surviving in the world today.....

For those who want to be as good as it gets, here it is...

This was the US Army's no expense spared fishtail parka, patten date M-1948, adopted in 1949 and approved 25th July 1950 and made for one year only in the same year. The Parka-shell was made of wind-resistant cotton sateen in Olive Drab shade 107 and featured a snap and slide fastener closure heavily offset to the left for snorkel fit when done up, slit front pockets, and a patch pocket on the upper left sleeve for pencils and cigarettes. The hooded parka liner was composed of wool-pile cloth in Olive Drab shade 30A.

Being so expensive to produce, and with the Korean war breaking out, the M-48 was quickly replaced by the "cheaper" to produce M-1951.

For those with a taste for the very best, there are a few true gems of M-48. The shells alone command £300+ and liners....well....good luck in finding one !!

Luckily, we are fishtailparkas.com and thats kinda what we do... :)..

We have small selection of 100% Original, Excellent Condition M-1948's complete with their Original Liners....!!

Size wise, please bear in mind M-48's are always BIG...regardless of size stated

We only have a handful in stock and treat each sale on a one on one basis, prices start around £799 for a complete excellent condition M-1948. If you are genuinely interested, drop us a line with your exact measurements and what you are after and we will take it from there.

"Absolutely Fantastic"

"Fast and Reliable Service"

"Thanks for a fast and reliable service. My parka (with wolf fur hood) arrived safe and sound and looks great. Also, your recommendations on sizing were spot on - the small is definitely large enough! I can't wait for the cold weather to arrive.

David Thackery, Australia

"Thrilled, Spectacular, Awesome"

"Thank you for all your help with finding me an original M-1951 Parka. The package arrived today much sooner than expected (only took three days to cross the pond). When I opened the box, I was thrilled. As describe, the parka and liner were in near un issued condition. In fact, they were spectacular! The Wolf fur on the detachable hood is awesome and really adds character to the parka. Please tell your refurbished they did one heck of a job. Finally, the advice you gave me regarding sizing was spot on and the parka fits exactly as desired."

Scott, Connecticut, USA

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the parka. Size is perfect. The condition of it is excellent - new and old at the same time.

I have practically not left the house without it since I received it in December. It is both smart and practical (the weather in Denmark have been very snowy and cold) and I really enjoy the hood with fur (my first parka came without fur and hood liner). Definetely my best x-mas present in years."

Best,

Henrik Meyer
