We Also Now Have an E T S Y Show With the Same Name. If You Plan to Wear This Parka, Please Measure a Similar Item That Fits You Well in The Manner We Describe in This Listing and Please Know Your Current Measurements. Parka Shows Some Light to Moderate Service Wear, but Remains in Overall GOOD to VERY GOOD CONDITION. Shows Some Light Scattered Soiling as Well as Minor Fading from Age, Use and Long Term Storage. No Odd or Musty Smells, But Could Use to Be Dry Cleaned.
Cuffs Show Some Visible Wear to the Poplin Material as Can Be Seen in the Photos. This is the Type of B-9 With the Knit Cuffs Recessed Into the Sleeves (See Photos). Heavy Duty Brass Construction CONMAR Zipper Remains in Excellent Condition and Functions Perfectly.
Mouton Fur Lined Hood Bears a Metal Zipper that is Also CONMAR and Functions Just as It Should. All Mouton to the Hood Remains in Excellent Condition and Is Not Falling Out and there are No "Bald" Spots. Parka Maintains All Buttons Except for One on the Right Cuff. Interior Quilted Liner and Other Materials Show Minor Age and Wear, but Remain Very Solid and Undamaged With No Readily Apparent Soiling or Staining.
Nomenclature Tag Remains to the Interior Collar Area, But as Is With Most B-9 Parkas there is NO QMD or Size Tag Present. The MEASUREMENTS ARE: CHEST = Approximately 27 Inches From Armpit to Armpit Across the Front When Zipped and Laying Flat (See Photos); BACK = 21 1/2 Inches from Shoulder Seam to Shoulder Seam Measured Across the Upper Back, Just Below the Collar; SLEEVES = 24 Inches Measured from Top Shoulder Seam to Cuff. It is Just a Little Too Snug Due to My Ever Advancing Weight. Overall, This is Actually a Quite Nice B-9 and it is Certainly in A Size That is Rarely Seen. It is a Nice, Solid Piece and Will Make a Good Addition to Your Collection.PLEASE Examine All Photos, Read Entire Description and Ask Any Questions that You May Have.
