US ARMY PARATROOPER \'JUMP\' JACKET

US ARMY PARATROOPER 'JUMP' JACKET

The elite US Paratroops where characterised by the wearing of this unique combat uniform. It's distinctive safari/hunter design, with angled double studded pockets became as much a part of the WWII U.S. Paratroopers' identity as their jump boots and parachute qualification wings.

Many will have seen the award winning productions of “Saving Private Ryan” and “Band of Brothers”, both of which have re-invigorated interest in the units that took part in the Normandy battles - not least the US paratroopers.

From the quality of the materials, to the cut and fit, these fine garments are virtually indistinguishable from an original. To further capture the essence of owning a vintage original, these have been given a post production wash.
