U.S. Marines Original Combat Jacket
You may have been feeling the chill on your way home after seein' a local band, but spent all your cash on beer and band merch to afford a fancy winter jacket.
An army jacket may be the answer to your wishes- ruggedly constructed and affordable while keeping its' flare. Camouflage pattern clothing was once perceived as a purely military uniform, but disruptive patterned clothing began appearing in the work of artists like Andy Warhol, often alongside a pacifist message. This saw many major designers incorporating camouflage patterns and symbolism, and imitations of military clothing soon became fashionable street wear in the 1970s.
A vintage army jacket can add some panache to a casual set of clothes. If you are more concerned about function than style, an army cold weather jacket will keep the cold out just fine, as it is often constructed with windproof or waterproof fabrics that are really built to last. Whether you are looking for a hard wearing clothing option that will see you through the winter or something that will add a little 1970s rebellion to your look- we've got your back, baby!
This jacket has four functional pockets which close up with two buttons under each fold- so all your shit will be secure. There is also a pocket on each sleeve- fully functional with secure button closure. You can wear this thing in mosh pits and your phone won't fall out if you secure your pockets!
