Buzz Rickson’s BR12247 Tropical Combat CoatClutch Cafe
Part of the US Army 'Tropical Combat Uniform' the Tropical Combat Fatigue or Jungle Jacket as it became colloquially known has become a timeless classic in menswear; practical, smart with an air of revolutionary cool it is a versatile wardrobe staple.
Buzz Rickson, known for its exacting military reproductions, has produced the first iteration of this iconic jacket, original examples being rare and highly sought after by collectors and clothes enthusiasts alike.
The '1st Pattern' Jungle jacket features some unique details specific initial contract design of these jackets in 1963; made from a 5.5oz cotton poplin the design was inspired by the WWII parachutist jacket with 4 bellows flapped patch pockets, the two chest pockets being angled for easy access.
Though the overall design of the jacket didn't alter the much, only the first production had epaulettes, side waist adjusters and exposed buttons: field testing and realities of jungle fighting revealed all these features proved impractical snagging on foliage, the jacket being simplified until the far more common 3rd pattern prevailed. Never the less the 1st pattern is still the most eye-catching and coolest design.
