"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!"

"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:
As you all know we have always worked hard to create and offer ladies parkas/women's parkas by working with professional seamtresses to re-work original US MIL fishtail parka stock to offer a true women's parka.
Women's Parka Sizing Guide Exact Measurements please read this carefully, we advise using a tape measure, to measure yourself against these sizes.
Armpit to Armpit (Across back) 20 inches / 51cm. Therefore giving a 40 inch / 102cm chest.
Collar to bottom of fishtail (measured down back) 36 inches / 91.5cm.
Sleeve Length (Shoulder to cuff) 23" inches / 58.5cm.
We advise customers to leave 6 to 8 inches / 15 to 20cms spare underneath a parka for jumpers, cardigans, suits etc.
Therefore, a 32" or 34" chest is the perfect ideal size for these women's parka's.
Please note: It takes our professional seamstress a complete day to produce a women's parka. We do not cut any corners and believe in a high quality finish!! We have built our reputation on quality and simply will not send out any product unless we are 100% happy with it!!
Today, we can offer two great ladies parka options...
1. Authentic M-1965 Fishtail Parka From £187 These womens parka's come with either the standard synthetic fur, or real fur hood option. Please note: The shells and liners are reduced accordingly. However, we are unable to reduce the M65 hood as they were only produced by the U.S. Army in one size - Big!!!. Although the real fur M65 hoods looks great when sat on the shoulders. Having said that, the hoods can be worn in extreme cold weather conditions. There are drawcords that pull the hood tighter to the wearer's head and being wool lined, the hoods are very warm. The hood buttons on and off and therefore can be either worn or removed as the wearer sees fit.
2. Classic M-1951 Fishtail Parka From £175 Available in either Olive Drab or Black.
PLEASE READ: Due to crazy demand, we have sold out of the olive drab faux fur and real fur hood attachments for the Classic M51 fishtail parka. Black M51 hoods are still available and in stock. Any orders placed now for the Olive Drab M51 fishtail parka will be for the outer shell and detachable liner, but not the detachable fur trimmed hood. The parka still has the plain green hood which is permanently attached and forms part of the outer shell (as shown in photo's). The price has been reduced accordingly to reflect this. Hoods will be available again early next year for £30 faux fur hood and £80 real fur hood. You will be able to buy the hood separately when they become available again. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but the demand for these parka's has took us a little by surprise.
These parka's are our take on the M-1951 Fishtail Parka. This is the same style parka we sold to Kate Moss. They have a permanently attached hood which forms part of the actual parka coat. Into this, buttons a faux fur hood attachment which can either be worn or removed.
Currently Sold Out Of The Olive Drab Fur Trimmed Hoods Until Further Notice: Please note, due to customer demand, we can upgrade the hood to real fur for an additional £80 to the shown price. Images showing the upgraded hood are shown below.

"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."
