Size

We find that as Buzz Rickson’s is made to an original spec, the brand is small compared to modern fits; therefore we advise customers to try at least a size larger than their standard size. We recommend that you contact our stores so our helpful retail teams can offer advice and give exact sizing information before you purchase.

  • This product is the reproduction of the M-51 parka. The M-51 parka is an updated version of the M-48 pullover parka that had evolved since World War Ⅱ. It was provided mainly to U.S. Army officers and personnel who fought in the cold during the Korean War. To protect the U.S. Forces from this unprecedented cold battlefield, a layering system was employed so that the parka could be worn over ordinary equipment. While the shell of the initial model(1951) was made of thick cotton satin, it was changed to oxford cotton nylon from the 1952 and later models to cut down on cost and make the parka lighter. The cuff has a rubber strap adjuster belt to better keep out the cold. Heat-insulating wool is also used for the pockets.
