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.
