It was its ruggedness and versatility that won over the General Infantry troops during World War 2. Even when the war was over, veterans still relied on their M-65 jackets as they returned to civilian lives. The dependability of this military wear continues today, as urbanities find their M-65 as an indispensable outerwear.
The recent partnership between FTC and SAGLIFE (SAGLIFE) brought back this classic once again. Produced in the traditions as the original, the FTC x SAGLIFE – M-65 Jacket incorporated the same water-resistant, weather proof features. There are also key differences. Instead the signature olive drab, the FTC x SAGLIFE version comes in all black or woodland camouflage. Stitched on name tags have been replaced with SAGLIFE and FTC (For The City) identities. Additional logos could be found silk-screened onto the sleeve pockets and rear shoulder patch.
Due to release in October, the jacket is now available for pre-order at the STLESS chapter of ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
