Constructed from an original 1956 Belgian Military Shelter Half Tent.
Original details preserved from the tent itself.
Brushstroke camouflage on one side, Olive green on the other (reversible).
Made in New York City.
This jacket is made from an original 100% Cotton 1956 Belgian Military Shelter Half Tent. Shelter Half tents were worn as ponchos in the field, then when troops would camp for the night, two soldiers would join their 'half' tents to form a whole tent. An ingenious piece of multifunctional military design.
Brushstroke camouflage is extremely rare in this condition and we have most of the supply! We have preserved as many of the original details and buttons of the tent itself and incorporated the original seams into the design.
Each jacket is made from one half tent, so details and characteristics may vary slightly from the images shown.
