"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!"

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.
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.
Pennsylvania, United States
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
Anyone reading these testimonials
should look no further.

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

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.

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.
Garry Wagstaff Barnsley UK
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"
Rebuffi Torino Italy
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
out there is considering buying
an original parka go no further
than this guy, TOP BLOKE.
Scott Smart From Aberdeen.
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
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....
Dean Jordan, Belfast
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
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
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
Thanks again and keep up the
The Web site is brilliant.

attached photos as promised.
| 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
All the best mate.
Tough, Aberdeen UK
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
We shall certainly recommend
you as i'm sure he will get
quizzed over it at the scooter
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.
Debbie White, Hook,
| 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
David Timmins, Oswestry,
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!!!
As you say on your website it's
the dog's bollocks!!!
Many thanks again.
Clough, Hazlemere, Surrry, UK
Found this website on a search,
emailed away, found the owner
to be really helpful and as soon
as my money cleared the package
was on my doorstep.
More than happy with my parka
– I can highly recommend
using this service.

|"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."
