The real thing, I think deadstock straight from the army stores, that's been customized by its previous owner with (wait, counting...) 10 TEN embroidered patches on the heavy rock theme: Anthrax, Zeppelin, faces of two Kiss members... You are going to need to be into metal. Confusingly it's labeled "extreme cold weather" though it is superlight--of course there are buttons to attach a lining, so that would explain it. There are all the bells and whistles you'd expect: two huge pockets, adjusters on the wrists, drawstring waist. The hood is missing. Size Small-Regular Chest from 33 to 37 inches. But see below.
Measurements: chest 50", shoulder 22", sleeve 25", length 35"
STORY: I am always always on the hunt for THE parka, fishtailed, and --I'll know it when I see it. This isn't The One, thought I've tried to love it: it's the weirdest combination of patches - Sex Pistols and Iron Maiden, Van Halen and Anthrax? I found it like this, and can't change it.
