FABRIC & DETAILS

LOT # CC061217

We found this fabric in Los Angeles and obviously bought as much as we could. It's original US Army surplus fabric from the 1970's, in mint condition. The color is incredible and the weave is very unique, its been made to last and will get better with age as you break it in.

This fabric would have been used for a multitude of army garments, but notably the M65 jacket that we've seen so many times in films, fashion and vintage.

Garment Details: 3 outer pockets, 2 inner pockets, corozo buttons, signature '11' embroidery, dark red button thread

Conservation: By purchasing this product you are saving approximately 1850 gallons of water it takes to produce enough cotton to make a single jacket. This huge amount of water is for the growing, harvesting, transporting, dyeing and finishing of the textile. You are also helping conserve enormous amounts of machine and human energy along with thousands of miles of transportation.

US ARMY MILITARY FABRICS

Olive Drab was the color of the standard fighting uniform for U.S. GI’s and military vehicles during World War II. U.S. soldiers often referred to their uniforms as "OD's" due to the color. The color used at the beginning of the war by the U.S. Army was officially called Olive Drab #3, which was replaced by Olive Drab #7  by 1944, and which was again replaced by Olive Green 107 or OG-107 in 1952, and continued as the official uniform color for combat fatigues through the Vietnam War.

In 1981, it was replaced by M81 Woodland camo fatigues as the primary U.S. uniform pattern (based on the ERDL pattern used by some soldiers in Vietnam), which retained olive drab as one of the color swatches in the pattern.
