The Real McCoy's

M-1951 Parka

Olive

The affordability and practically of the M-51 field Parka is what led to its widespread use by the mods of England. Dating back to the start of the cold war, countless military surplus items barely used by the U.S Army were left behind and were sold throughout Western Europe, but primarily in the UK. Emulating the dapper Italians, the working class aspired to dress in exquisite wool suits and ride scooters, and would spend all their money to do so. These expensive suits though were susceptible to damage, as the exhaust from the two stroke scooters would spit out oil. This circumstance led to the rise in popularity of the M-51 parka, as it was used as a protective layer over expensive wool suits. This reproduction of the M-51 jacket which was in production during 1951. It was the only year that used heavy back sateen fabric instead of cotton poplin. The real deal when it comes to parkas.

The Real McCoy's

The Real McCoy's is a brand like no other. To many the outdated features of vintage clothing have little significance in today's modern society, but this is exactly what influences the brand. American fashion of the 1940's and 1950's is a source of great inspiration; a young country unburdened by the restrictions of traditional customs, one that’s uninhibited, rational and innovative. 

However, this ideology is not enough. To make extraordinary clothing with vintage details and twists requires the sensitive minds and outstanding work of craftsmen in Japan. They are highly skilled at manufacturing materials using the same methods and machinery from the past. Whilst they endeavour to create the very best reproduction, they also seek to make it even better than the original.
