Something a bit special here.The first of the modern field jackets, introduced in 1943. This one is stamped1966, never issued, never used, no smells, completely New Old Stock. Stamped “Hæren”, for the Norwegian army. Not a smelly surplus jacket, no one has enjoyed it before you. Equivalent to a Japanese reproduction, but actually a real vintage piece, not something made yesterday. Size 50, consider it a medium. Will measure up the details. Asking 225 pounds for this timewarp piece, a fraction of what a repro made last week costs 😉

 

Original issued, used and totally patinated Norwegian army M-43 field jacket.

If you want the classic field jacket look, this could be the one for you. The first of the modern field jackets, introduced in 1943. It’s been used, worn and washed. The canvas is soft as a cotton t-shirt, the creases are all in there. I fastened a couple of buttons, otherwise, it’s totally original. It even has the Norwegian flag on the arm. Would take 20 years or regular use to gain this quality of wear. No smells and no surprises, just pure vintage army style. Size 52, so a pretty standard large. Asking only 65 pounds.

If you know your Clarks, you know what these are. The first generation of the distinctive Trigenics. Weird and wonderful indeed. Green pebbled leather, extra laces. Worn briefly inside. In original box. Asking 69 pounds.

From my investment collection comes this pair of perfect deadstock Lee 11-Z dungarees. Made in the USA, sanforized denim, size 38×34. Never worn, never hemmed.

Most likely from 1975, going by the “75” on the size label, but could be anywhere from mid 60’s to 70’s something. A similar pair was recently sold in Japan for over 500 pounds. Best offer over 250 can enjoy these timewarp dungarees. To frame and display or wear!
