Eisenhower had already requested a waist-cropped style stemming from his appreciation of the functionality of the British Battledress jacket.

Two angled pockets on the front, a patch pocket on the left arm and adjustable waistband buttons finish this easy-wearing jacket. By 1943, front-line skirmishes in North Africa and Europe proved the Parsons jacket insufficient and it was replaced by a completely redesigned field jacket.

With a gold toned zip fastening, this jacket is finished with solid colour throughout and the Dickies logo patch above the hem. Through this creative expression, the New Romantics created their own scene, which ended up captivating the world through their music and style. The Air Transport Command (ATC) recommended development of a waist-length wool field jacket that could be worn under the M-1943 jacket as an added insulating layer. Ideal for everyday wear, this water resistant jacket is designed with a classic collar and adjustable tabs to the waistband for a customisable fit.

Intended to be worn on its own or underneath the M-1943 jacket, the "Ike jacket", was classified standard issue in November 1944, and additionally designated as the Army’s dress and parade uniform. In 1949, the United States Air Force (USAF), which had been spun off as a separate service in 1947, included an Eisenhower jacket in its new " Air Force blue" uniform color; it remained in use by the USAF until being retired in 1964.

Intended to be worn on its own or as an insulating layer beneath the M-1943 Field Jacket and over the standard wool flannel shirt and wool sweater, it featured a pleated back, adjustable waist band, fly-front buttons, bellows chest pockets, slash side pockets, and shoulder straps.Our site uses the latest 128 bit SSL security, complying with and exceeding all necessary security requirements to protect your details.

Made of twill with a quilted lining featuring adjustable buttons on the waistband, resulting in a jacket that is the perfect fit. In 1947, the Army introduced a more closely tailored version of the Eisenhower jacket which was designated solely as a dress and parade uniform; the jacket was again modified in 1950 without button cuffs.
