Buzz Rickson's US Army Herringbone Twill Frogskin Camo Jacket
Regular price3 999 krSale
The P-42, also known as the "Frogskin" jacket was issued to the US Marine Corp during WWII, with the unique camo pattern developed for a jungle type environment. The camouflage was designed to be multi functional and could be worn reversed with the so called "Beach" side out, which is in the same pattern but in sandy brown color.
Buzz Rickson's have carefully reproduced this garment according to the original one with all the wartime spec. Their version of the Buzz P-42 is made of sturdy quality herring bone twill, "HBT", cotton fabric with all the correct and authentic details. The jacket has the two iconic large brest pockets, Mil spec urea buttons and the the double layers on the front known as the gas flap. This detail was added when chemical warfare became a bigger threat and with this buttoning the body stays protected, preventing gas or chemicals to come in contact with the skin. It is also a great way to make sure that cold winds wont blow straight in between the button holes.
This jacket was designed to be worn on top of other garments so it is large in the construction. It looks great when worn over sized but if you prefer a slightly more slim silhouette you can size down. Please see the measurements for more information.
