M1951 Fishtail Parkas: M51 Parka, M1951 Parka

The Vintage M51 Fishtail Parka

STOCK UPDATE 1st February 2018
Only size large available now. We have decided to move away from original M51 parka kit now because they are becoming virtually impossible to find in the condition we like for retail. Especially the small original M51 parka's which are the size mostly required. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Also, we have produced what we believe to be the most accurate and best M51 reproduction parka. Please see our Stonetail M-1951 Parka for further details.

"The parka looks stunning."

I just wanted to let you know that I'm more than happy with my M51 Parka.
The parka looks stunning. It feel so good to ride my vespa in my beautiful parka.
Thank you so much for the very good service and the excellent advice.
Can't live anymore without my M51 Parka!!!
I'll recommend you.
Hope we can catch up anytime for a beer.
Thanks again.

The M-1951 parka is the first choice for those wanting the original vintage mod parka. Produced in 1951 by the US Army, this was " the " fishtail parka the original mods wore in 1960's Britain. Today, 60+ years later, they are one of the most rare and sought after fashion icons.

And for those seeking to treat themselves to one, then you are in the right place. There are quite a few reasons why we are the worlds Number One, but the most important reason is that we are truly passionate about what we do and we work hard to get it right first time.

When looking to spend on such a coat, you want to know you will get the best quality and best fit for you and that's what we do best. Unlike many of the "jonny come lately's" who have jumped on the parka band wagon, we know enough about M-51's to know how to sell them so you get exactly what you want and our standards for quality and customer service are known the world over.

Every parka we handle undergoes a complete inspection and restoration process to ensure it is ready to wear and appreciate in value. Before being classed as ready to go, every M-51 is professionally cleaned and inspected and undergoes a complete restoration of repairs, replacing zips, poppers, cuffs, buttons or indeed anything that needs doing to make it up to our standards and our standards for what is ready to go is simple. If I would not wear it, I will not sell it. Hence why Film Stars, Rock Stars, TV and Magazines come to us and everyone gets the same level of top end service.

The end result is that every parka is in the best possible condition for 60+ years old and each parka comes complete with a fully restored original M-51 liner and we even re-trim the M-51 hoods with fresh new real fur.
We remove the wire from the hood when we re-fur it so the hood will hang correctly :)

And of course ALL are Guaranteed 100% Original M-1951 US Military Issue by the Worlds leading collector and dealer, fishtailparkas.com. Most importantly, our "custom" order system means you are not taking a " chance " of getting the right fit, its mean you will get it. Bottom line, you can line up 10 medium labeled M-51's and have 10 different sizes....so we actually bother to measure exactly the right parka for you !!
