the m-65 field jacket
valet and i must be on the same page. i watched deer hunter last weekend and that got me thinking about taxi driver – which comes out on blu-ray april 5. both are must see films if you’re a de niro fan. the m-65 field jacket is a classic and worn by de niro’s character in the film. it replaced the m-51 jacket during the vietnam war to keep the soldiers warm after the monsoonal rains. the big difference between the m-51 and m-65 is that the m-65 is made out of nylon and the m-51 was made out of a heavy cotton. the m-65 is a nice light-weight jacket to transition you from winter to spring. it’s also a favorite of film-maker/blogger jake davis. buy yours here.
