FROM THE FIELD TO FASHION MAINSTREAM SINCE 1943

The SURPLUS Army jacket has been built from a hard-wearing, stonewashed brushed cotton twill, rich in character with an authentic vintage fade. 

We have balanced form and function by adding a concealed hood, adjustable waist and hem and ventilation eyelets. Like any &SONS garment, the devil is in the detail. We have invested in heavy-duty, antique hardware for fastenings, zips, and reinforced areas for strength and durability. 

"A gem, would love one of all the range. Best compliment I can give is... I wouldn't tell anyone so I could look like I've stepped out of my own movie!"

INTRODUCING

SURPLUS is inspired by traditional Militaria - Jackets, trousers and hats worn by troops worldwide, where form and function were paramount, and every detail counted. This starting point inspired ideas on what these garments could become today, their role, and why these original pieces meant so much to those who wore them.

The Jacket follows a style first introduced by the US Military in 1965 to replace the M-1951 Field Jacket. We’ve honoured the design with a rolled-up hood that can be stuffed away when not in use and pleats down the back for ease of movement.

ORIGINS

Over the decades, the modern world has immortalized the iconic army jacket. But unlike other divisions of the armed forces (the Navy and Air Force), historically, very few G.I.s actually enjoyed this piece of their uniform. Unlike the equally iconic flight jacket or peacoat, the field jacket was often a case of poor planning and general discontent.As camouflage replaced previously bright uniforms, this newfound fashion palette was seen as bland, with other servicemen referring to wearers as brown boys. Early versions of the Field Jacket were poorly designed using fabrics unsuitable for the job in hand and soon replaced with superior functionality and better textiles. During the 1940s, these soldiers' prayers were answered, and the military released its latest jacket, the M-43. This newest version came with more pockets, functionality and a deeper shade of green. It became the blueprint for the jacket we know and love today. Made in Turkey
