Up for sale this classic United States field combat jacket from the Second World War, the so-called M-1941 or M-41, known as the Parsons jacket as well, as that was the name of the general of the US Army who was credited with designing this garment.
The jacket is in the unusual size 44 R, and it is in fairly good condition for its age. All the flaws were described above and photos were taken for you to see by yourself. The fabric of the jacket is a little bit faded from its original olive green color, we think, as the jacket might have been washed or dry cleaned a few times over the years.
The size label has a name that we believe belongs to the soldier who wore this jacket during the war. If we are correct, then we know with what force he participated, the Anti Aircraft Artillery, as that is the patch that is on the shoulder of the jacket.
The measurements are: 27" from pit to pit across the chest; 21" from shoulder seam to edge of cuff; 21 1/2" from shoulder to shoulder across the front of the jacket; 29" from collar seam to hem along the back of the jacket.
As you may notice from these measurements, the sleeves are really short for the size of the chest. The reason is the sleeves were shortened a little bit by some previous owner, but we believe, from inspecting them on the inside, that they were not cut, just the cuffs folded to the inside of the sleeves and then loosely stitched by hand (check our close-up of this area, below). There are 2" of usable fabric folded inside the sleeve, both of the outer fabric and the wool lining. If necessary, the new owner could have the sleeves extended to 23" long, but we think a mark would be visible where the sleeves are folded right now.
If you need some other information regarding this situation, please contact us and we'll do our best to answer your questions.
Please be advised we do not ship to Thailand.

The cloth tag inside the right pocket. It is washout, and almost illegible, but "42" is still readable, with some effort, on the line where the date of manufacturing is. It was no possible to show that in pics, as there is not enough contrast for our camera to take a clear photo.
