Leather M-65 Field Jacket
- Product Review (submitted on December 31, 2018):
My M65 leather Field Jacket (size S), rating 4,5 stars, receipt of delivery 0 stars
Some time within the nineties I got a second hand M65 which I still like very much and fits me well
Over time the desire to have an exact copy of it in leather arises and well, after years I have found the closest match with yours. The appearel is really stunning, very convenient wear, good fit and with a hoodie underneath worm enough at some minus temps outside. I had the comparison with a M51, same labelled size. On this the armcuffs were wider, the leather felt thicker (change of quality or natural variation in leather?) and the epaulets were in place in comparison with the M65 were they are located more rear of instead on top of my shoulders. But this are only minor complaints in contrast to the receipt – non receipt of the delivery.
The tracking information lacked consistant information. It said when it has reached Germany, has undergone customs clearence?, and then stuck without any further information. A week passed then I received a letter that I shall pick it up from local customs office. Somehow I had to arrange this with my way to work and my working hours. This was a bad experience, the way of delivery seems to be a kind of lottery. In contrast on Feb. this year I bought speakers from USA, customs declaration was online and the delivery was announced and brought to my house door. On reception I paid for customs. I don‘t know, if I would do any purchase again.
