This long parka coat is made in Japan and produced by Buzz Rickson from Toyo Enterprises. The Buzz Rickson label, a division of Toyo Enterprise in Japan, is famous around the world for its expertly-crafted authentic military clothing. This long coat pays homage to the iconic WW2 M-42 reversible parka used by US army mountain troops with exacting details. The pattern construction of this long parka coat is a reproduction of the the "Overcoat, Parka Type, Reversible" dated 1942. This M42 military hooded coat features a full length (offering full body protection from the head to below the knees), reversible (one side of the parka is olive-drab and the other is snow-white for use in snowy conditions) made from two-ply of lightweight cotton poplin, zipper closure with a storm flap, adjustable waist belt to adjust the fit, and the snap buttons on bottom hems and the hood both for adjusting the size. This product is US/EU size. And this is cut to wear as a over-sized fit. This parka is a type of overcoat intended to be worn as the outermost garment. This coat is sized like the originals to allow bulky layers to be worn underneath and and allow a full range of motion so this is over sized. Oversized fit, but please choose your normal size and use the belt at the waist to adjust the fit (The model in the image is wearing the parka fitted using the adjuster belt at the waist. Please do not pull the belt too hard as this may cause damage. The buckle is a push-in fastening type. Please note that the paint on the buckles will peel with use). If you prefer a more fitted look for a more casual look and fashion purpose, please select one size smaller. This item is new creations by Buzz Rickson by Toyo Enterprises from Japan.
