Small Vintage Safari Bush Jacket Tropical Cotton Khaki Army Twill Poplin Wwii?


postmen Store This is a vintage military-like safari jacket. There is no label or any sign of who made it or when it was produced. It is a very heavy cotton and is very strongly constructed. It has four front pockets that close with heavy metal snaps. It is belted with a metal buckle. It closes with a Talon zipper. Beneath the collar in the front there is avery small zippered pouchaboutsix inches long and an inch and a half wide. All the pockets havelargebellows. The collar closes with two snaps. The back has twobellowedflaps above and below the belt.
Becausethe shirt has no size mark please seemeasurementsbelow. Measured with the jacket laying flat it is 19 inches from pit to pit. The sleeves are about 23 1/2 inches longmeasuredfrom shoulder seem to end of cuff. From the bottom of the collar to the hem it is about 30 inches along.
The color is adark khaki, though not quite olive. We had a tough time getting the color right in the photos. I'd say it is closer to the first two photos.

NOTE ON CONDITION: On further review, we have noticed what appears to be a small repair under the flap of the upper left-hand pocket. We have added photos of that in the Photobucket slideshow. We have gotten an extraordinary amount of interest in this jacket, with questions from around the world and offers within the first 20 hours of up to $400.  We do have some additional information in response to questions. The snaps were manufactured by United Carr. They appear to be brass, or brass colored. What I earlier described as a small pouch under the collar actually unzips from both sides. Again, please see Photobucket slideshow. I don't know what this was for, but it opens with 6" zippers on both sides. These zippers were manufactured by Kwik, and work like new. BUY IT NOW QUESTIONS. Several people have asked for a Buy It Now and made offers. I'm not sure if that can be done after offers are submitted. But we will check that out and consider that. If we add a Buy It Now will do that around 4 p.m. today, Sunday March 31. We want to be fair to all buyers and appreciate the interest. This jacket was purchased at an estate sale last year and unfortunately we have no information on the previous owner. I am selling this for two young "pickers" -- 11 and 13 -- who are learning about estate sales, and researching interesting items like this. Please let us know if you have other questions. We will try to respond promptly, but this is a part-time/hobby for us and we are not always able to respond immediately. 

On Mar-31-13 at 13:36:13 PDT, seller added the following information:

There will be no Buy It Now. Once offers are received, you can't add a Buy It Now. doesn't allow it and it wouldn't be fair to all buyers. So while we appreciate all the generous offers to end the sale early, we will be letting this sale run the full course.

A helpful er tells us this is a WWII M42 US paratrooper jump jacket. 

On Apr-01-13 at 20:03:40 PDT, seller added the following information:

Some more information from another helpful er. (We are learning a lot through this sale. Thanks to all who have shared their expertise.)  This is an M42 Paratrooper Field Jacket issued to the 82nd & 101st Airborne for the jump into Normandy on 6 Jun 1944. The small double-zippered pocket near the neck was designed to hold a Paratrooper Folding Knife, the primary purpose of which was to, if necessary, cut oneself out of the parachute harness and rigging (it was double-zippered in order to gain access with either the left or right hand). In September 1944, this jacket was replaced by the M43 Field Jacket for the jump into Holland on 17 Sep 1944 during Operation Market-Garden.
