Recommendations

Belgian M58 smock, Jigzaw camo, surplus

49.99 EUR
Proper old timey paratrooper smocks from the days when men were made of wood and military gear was made to last! These 50´s smocks are actually quite something, a damn practical model with big pockets, a generous and roomy cut and materials that really make most modern clothes ashamed of themselves. It´s quite a miracle really that old relics like these are still around in numbers, but some day soon these too will be all gone! And these have quite a history to them too, some of these very jackets may have taken part in the wild mercenary wars of the Congo in the 1960´s.
