Classic M-1951 Fishtail Parka

The Classic M51 fishtail parka has a plain hood which is permanently fixed to the outer shell. Into the plain hood attaches the winter hood which is fur trimmed. We have added a plain hood option to the listing for those customers who prefer the plain hood style and do not wish to buy the separate M51 parka winter hood.

£95 | Plain Hood Option
£125 | Faux Fur Winter Hood Option
£225 | Real Fur Winter Option

All of the above parka coat options come with the outer shell and detachable quilted liner.

PARKA BADGES

Please see our images for Parka Badges available. We send the parka badges loose in the pocket and not stitched into place. This is because a customer may need an exchange, or a refund. The parka badges are optional and not compulsory. Please bypass the option when checking out if you desire a plain fishtail parka coat.

Jam Large Parka Badge is 25cm in diameter and perfect for the back of fishtail parka's.
U.S. Army Name Tape measures 12cm in width x 2.8cm height and is positioned on the left chest area.
All other badges shown are small and measure approximately 8.5cm's in diameter.

Using all original materials (cotton twill / poplin), buttons and working from exact original patterns and using an M-65 type liner as well as following the M-65 sizing, this is a truly excellent M-1951 parka which will not be costing you an arm and a leg :) ...and does not have all the sizing problems and issues of original M-1951's..

Also, we can also offer "women's" and smaller sizing, thank goodness I hear you say !! :)...
Size guide below...and....please BE SURE to read it before ordering....:)...
So, for all of you who want that classic M-1951 look without the hefty price tag, we are very proud to offer you, the Classic M-1951 Fishtail Mod Parka....

Classic M-1951 Review: This parka is as warm as the M-65, and as stylish as the original M-51 and follows the same style as the iconic parka's worn in Quadrophenia.

And on a personal note I will say, as someone who has handled and seen more original parka kit than any man alive, this really is a very good M-1951...and for the money, you won't beat it:)

The Classic M51 comes complete with a faux fur hood attachment that can be worn or removed as the wearer chooses. The wool-lined faux fur hood attachment buttons into the permanently attached hood which forms part of the outer shell.

Due to customer demand, we now offer the option of upgrading the faux fur hood with real fur. Please see the payment buttons below if you wish to order a real fur hood upgrade.

If you read the size chart above you will be able to easily choose the right size for you.

How ??....easy, I recommend a tape measure and taking your measurements first, i.e. Chest, measure around under your arms, arm length from shoulder seam to the end of the cuff, and for length, simply check length of parka then run the tape measure from your neck line down....

Then, check your measurements against the size chart and you can find your best fit...

For chest size, you want 6-8 inches spare..so if your chest measures exactly 42 inches, you want a 50" size small parka.
