Vintage Korean War M65 Field Jacket
I don't know what it is about a classic M65, but I've yet to meet a man who doesn't look handsome in one. Doesn't matter if you're too tall or too short, fat, or the hunchback of Notre Dame, a properly fitted M65 will always look leading-man. And if you’re inclined to pick one up, go for a vintage one from Korean war era to Vietnam period (prices range from $19 to $500 dollars depending on patches and condition) because they were the most hearty and look like they served their country with distinction and lived to tell about it. My own father's M65 from Vietnam is long gone, but I managed to pick up a couple at vintage clothing stores years ago and they are truly among the most special pieces in my own wardrobe. You can wear them working out in the yard and use the myriad of pockets to store gloves, keys, tools, etc. You can go punk like Travis Bickle or hipster like kids in Harajuku.
