This piece could be the best designed piece of British military clothing of the later half of the 20th century. No-nonsense, built like a tank and the true embodiment of function over form. But what a form it is. The design began in the 50s, but really came into itself in the cold, unforgiving waters of the South Atlantic where it was well liked by Royal Navy crews heading to the Falklands. Tough double layered ventile fabric and so many details I really don't know where to start.
This is perfect absolutely mint condition, with very few signs of use. The elastic around the waist and sleeves has not been tied. There are couple of superficial marks near the pockets and the lower radio cord flap, which would all very likely come out with a good clean, but otherwise she's practically deadstock.
