This unlined field jacket have been inspired by the M42 Paratrooper Jacket (read more below). It features the iconic key elements which is the slanted chest bellowed pockets. We have re-invented the jacket and given it a more sophisticated and updated look for the modern urban man.
The original M42 Paratrooper jacket was worn during WWII and it was designed by Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) William P. Yarborough. The slanted pockets were the key design feature and allowed easier access to the chest pockets under field equipment. It was a jacket that made American Paratroopers unique and proud, and for each of its owners, civilian or military, the jacket’s style radiates the same uniqueness and pride as the Paratroopers that once wore them.
