The M42 color was Olive Drab #3. The coat consisted of four front patch pockets with two button snaps on each, along with a unique dual-zippered knife pocket located on the upper lapel which was designed to contain a switchblade pocketknife.
The M42 was mostly worn by Paratroops assigned to Airborne units. The M42 was eventually phased out in favor of the new M1943 Uniform which was a darker green, OD #7. Despite this, various individuals chose to keep their M42s in order to show their veteran status.
Materials: 11.5 oz Cotton Drill
Equipped with a waistband
Military marks, Contract NO., Military code NO., and Stock NO., as the original version

Superbe repro de la veste para non renfort ww2, d'une qualité exceptionnelle. Fidèle à l'originale. Un tout petit reproche, l'emplacement de la belle étiquette cousue à l'intérieur de la veste au lieu de l'intérieur de la poche... Rien de bien méchant. Top . Vince. Normandy-France.
very well built, excellent quality cloth, accurate reproduction. a very fine product indeed. Keep going, Bronson!
La coupe, le tissus et le modèle sont fantastiques, juste la ceinture un peut trop courte pour la corpulence européenne.

Love the quality and material, I should have got the next size larger, sizing chart was a little confusing, will be ok in the summer with no other shirts under it, tight fit.
Great workmanship! Awesome quality, its tough and long-lasting, great for layering, its a timeless piece.
