2ND ARMORED WARDADDY 1ST PATT TANKER Jacket
This recreation of the jacket model worn by the character “Wardaddy” (Brad Pitt) in the movie ‘FURY’ is embellished with high-quality, mil-spec, embroidered 2nd Armored Div shoulder device and sergeant stripes - exquisitely hand-sewn down in cross-hatch stitching.
FURY is set at the very end of World War II, in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theater, a battle-hardened army sergeant named 'Wardaddy' commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines.
Officially designated as 'Jacket Winter, Combat', the 'Tank' jacket was originally intended for all branches of the U.S. Army as a general issue winter jacket. However, it was re-designated for use only by U.S. armoured troops, hence its nickname - 'Tank' (or 'Tanker') jacket.
