"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"

"Just a quick email to say a big Thankyou for getting the parka here so quickly for a birthday present, after chatting on the phone. Fantastic looking piece of kit and a brilliant service from you.! Well done and thanks again, he's going to be well chuffed."

All the best,
Rob Holgate UK

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"

"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

Just to say hello from Geneva in Switzerland where my Parka is keeping me really warm these chilly mornings. It really is excellent and the fit is perfect.

What can I say that others haven’t already?. If you want the best with lashings of good advice and service second to none, fishtailparkas.com is the place.

Fishtail parka, customer, M-65 parka,
I just received my parka yesterday and it fits great and looks much better than I could have ever anticipated. The real fur complements the rest of the parka amazingly. I was surprised when it arrived, I was expecting it to come in at the maximum amount of days allowed. But here it was across "the big pond" much sooner than I expected. I already recommended you to a friend, and would recommend you to so many more. Thanks for a great product, and an ever greater service. My M65 looks amazing.

M-65 Parka, Fishtail Parka, Wolf Fur Hood
My M-51 parka arrived today and it's absolutely gorgeous. It's even better than I thought it would be and the colour and condition are fantastic. As you predicted, the fit is perfect. I can't believe the difference compared with my M65 - they're just not in the same league. When you consider that an M65 is probably one of the best quality and best value coats money can buy, I think that's praise indeed. Like I said before, I've waited 20 years to get my hands on a good M51 and it certainly doesn't disappoint. Thanks so much for sorting me out with such an incredibly rare and high quality parka, and for making the whole selection and purchase process such a pleasure.

You're a top bloke! Thanks again.

Hi, I received the M51 today as promised. Fits great and is even better than my M65.
I have been checking out your site now for several years and I'm glad I decided to use you as I cannot imagine getting the same service and product anywhere else.

Anyone reading these testimonials should look no further.

M-65 Parka, Fishtail Parka, Wolf Fur Hood

My parka arrived yesterday.....i'm absolutely stoked beyond any sensible reasoning!!! and the real fur hood looks the nuts.....to say the least!!!....and fits perfectly.

Thanks, I'm so pleased.....if you havn't already guessed....also, thanks for all your help with getting it ordered i.e. The right size etc and getting it to me in perfect condition.

Thanks again.

Martin Blackery. UK

M-65 Parka, Fishtail Parka, Wolf Fur Hood
The M65 I ordered arrived today with it's re-trimmed real fur hood. It is the business mate, thank you very much. The coat is obviously un-issued and is just what I wanted.

It feels about -300 degrees today so it couldn't have come at a better time. I noticed in the shops recently that Lambretta are doing a parka in their "The Who" range for about £140.

I just hope people buy the real thing, as for an extra £29 I've got a fur trimmed M65 that's far superior and it's authentic. It will look the business riding my 1963 Li and I will spread the word to my mates about your business.

The coat is spot on, thanks for the quick service,

All the best

Thanks for being so prompt. The parka arrived this afternoon and I tried it on for size this evening. It is brilliant and just what I wanted.

I will certainly recommend you to the people that I meet in our local scooter club and Soul nights. Hopefully you can get some more orders in the bag.

Once again thankyou.

M-51 parka with wolf fur hood, fishtail parka

I bought a parka a lot of years ago in England, then I lost it when I changed my home. It's very difficult to find in Italy this item so I went on Web and I saw FishtailParkas.com site; I sent an email and it was very simple: order, payment, shipping in Italy, everything was good. Service was great, the gentleman very kind and the Parka M65 is very beautiful, in mint condition.

I'm very happy again, it's an essential garment for me. Thanks a lot again"

kind regards

I received my Parka today 31st Oct 2006 and let me tell you something mate i am so happy with it you wouldn`t believe it. I never expected it to be as half as good as it is especially being over 50 years old and used. 3 words to sum this up (VALUE, QUALITY, FRIENDLINESS) I have never met you, only spoke on the phone briefly but yet i feel as if i have known you for years.

If anyone out there is considering buying an original parka go no further than this guy, TOP BLOKE.

Kindest Regards

m-1951 fishtail parka, m51 parka

I searched the internet for a fishtail parka and came across fishtailparkas.com. I couldn't believe there was actually a site dedicated to genuine US fishtail parkas.

I made contact and a very efficient process began. We discussed my requirements which had to be an M51 and they sourced my parka and sent photos.

Payment was very simple and within one day from ordering it I received it. Opening the box bought back so many memories as the smell of these parkas is distinctive, having worn one for years as a MOD in the late seventies / mid-eighties.

Its not very often these days you get customer service which is excellent and FishtailParkas.com is definitely that.

I would have no hesitation in recommending your business to any would be buyer....

Regards Dean Jordan, Belfast

I don’t know if I said anything…but the parka is perfect. Thanks !!!

You have delivered a fantastic product – the parka is exactly as advertised, effectively brand new, and just what I’d hoped for. The first one that arrived was too small, but the returns process works perfectly.

Would definitely recommend you to anyone.

John Ginn, Surrey, UK

Thank you for a truly brilliant original parka even better than the one I had in the 80’s. I couldn’t believe how good the condition of it was especially for it age.

The whole experience of buying the parka from start to finish was easy, simple and a joy unlike most other sites you use on the web.
Thanks again and keep up the great work.

Andy Harding. UK

PS The Web site is brilliant.

M-51 parka with wolf fur hood, fishtail parka
Just dropping you a line to say thanks really. I received my M51 today and as predicted, it's perfect. I couldn't be happier mate. If it had been tailor made for me it wouldn't fit any better. Even my girlfriend was suitably impressed by how cool this looked and that's high praise indeed mate :o)

The condition of the parka is fantastic. I can't believe how well the parka has kept it's colour and It's really hard to believe that this thing is an antique.

Yeah the parka cost a few quid, but to buy a jacket of this quality from a high street shop would probably have cost about £500 quid (at least). I'm just glad I opted for an M51 from you instead of spending a fortune on something by Prada or Armani that wouldn't have come remotely close to having the strength, style or history that this thing has. I just can't wait to get out on my Lambretta now (as requested, I'll send you a few pics of me on the Lammy with the parka).

Thanks for all your help and understanding when the first one didn't fit. It took a couple of efforts but we definitely got there in the end.

All the best mate.

The man from Del Monte he say YEAH, it fits...
He is well chuffed, he says it's excellent, he also can't believe what good condition it's in!

We shall certainly recommend you as i'm sure he will get quizzed over it at the scooter club.
I will also put the word around about your new line in suits..

Thank you so much and it's been great doing business with you.
Kindest regards

The parka looks stunning! I can't thank you enough for the time and trouble you have taken to get it looking how I want.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving me such excellent customer service in supplying me with a parka exactly to my specifications.

When I contacted you with what I thought would be an impossible task, I was thrilled that not only could you meet my specifications but could offer me guidance on securing the best deal. At every point in our dealings you firmly had my interests at heart, the service was professional yet friendly something that I value very highly.

At last I now have a coat that for a long time I had wanted but always thought impossible to get hold of and it is all thanks to Fishtailparkas.com. I would not hesitate on recommending this company.

Received my parka today. I'm more than happy with it - it's twice as nice as the one I used to own back in the 80's which I gave away to my homeless mate!!!

Many thanks again.

"Absolutely Fantastic"

Just got the parka. It’s absolutely fantastic, the wolf trim looks great and I can’t wait to go for a ride on the vespa!"


Alex Milton UK
"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."


Henrik Meyer
