the ECW fishtail parka i posted earlier

fits quite loose with just a shirt underneath but i wouldn't ever wear it that way anyway.

fits perfectly with a mid-heavy jacket underneath.

Those are the boots I rock. They're easy to find on EBay for 30 bucks, but if you hunt a bit, you could probably land an auction where you just pay shipping like I did. (10 bucks)

MA-1...

alpha makes a MA-1 TT which looks like a slimmed down black version of their ma1... looks like more of a euro release. but it still is considered "baggy" for you whiny skinny motherfuckers who complain that everything doesn't fit your size 44 XS stick figure

also, this lad musician ma-1 works for the tiny bros

I have an Alpha Industries 50th Anniversary N3B from last year if anyone's interested. Deadstock with most tags. (I got excited when it came in and ripped some off haha.)

http://hypebeast.com/2009/12/alpha-industries-50th-anniversary-collection/

It's the black one if you scroll down. It's a M. I am looking for a L, so if anyone wants to trade that'd be dope as well, and thus the reason for selling.

$400obo.

It was 379yen I think, it's been too long I can check if someone's really interested, and all the fees associated with proxies from SutoCorp.

Can provide pics as well.

post fishtail parka pics!!

fuckin love fishtail parkas..

i'm on an eternal quest to find a slim m51 vintage/repro parka

but, vintage/repro = not slim

or the slim ones are 'military inspired' with wierd details

looking for a slimmer m-65 fishtail. saw a girl wearing one a few weeks ago and i got kinda jealous icon11.gif

this season gap has a spring weight slim navy cotton ma-1 bomber out. ideal zipper, back shoulder gussets, no hidden placket and no zipper/pen pocket on the sleeve. it's fitted in the body but still has that puffiness an ma-1 should have. it looks great zipped or unzipped. a really nice jacket

I've seen Humberto of Opening Ceremony wear something like that, without the hood. Looked pretty good on him.

Size medium runs very big on those vintage M-65 fishtails, if I recall correctly.

Depends on your style and if you wanna wear it swishy-swishy like the mods did.

The fit is not going to be anywhere near 41 inches.

The parkas were made to fit over all sorts of gear, so they are made really oversize.

Size S is hard to find.

XS is even harder to find, but isn't that much smaller than S.

Just copped a great Canadian IECS fleece. Nylon shoulder and elbow patches and huge breast pocket with snap and pen holder. Zip underarm vents. Velcro epaulets. Plus it comes in tall sizes so if you size down on the body but get the tall size, you get a nice slim modern fit. Pretty awesome for $30.

On the verge of pulling the trigger on a goretex arctic CF parka (also in tall sizes, woot). Badass, but $200 is at the upper limit of my usual willingness to spend for army-navy surplus shit.

Here's the parka I'm lusting over, though I'm thinking of getting it in the olive not blue:

I'm going back in about a week. I'll copy down the NSN code and post it here. There are lots of parkas available, but I'm not sure about availability of this particular one (with Gore-Tex, etc.)

about 1/3 of the adult homeless population is veteran. what do you expect to happen when you run into one from vietnam?

I'm all for functional tech and aesthetics and what not, but there is some serious poserish shit going on nowadays in the worst way

yeah, truthfully, i find it weird enough when people keep divisional patches, etc. on jackets. wearing someone's full-on tour jacket seems borderline get-your-ass-kicked territory, unless the jacket belonged to someone you're related to.
