Thanks so much ongaku! Since inheriting this and his M-51 field jacket, I've not worn my repro M-43 much at all

Koyosha Co (aka Bingo Country Denim) - a garment manufacturer catering mostly to other brands. They only make a few different pieces with their name on it, including the M-43 field jacket.

One of the most accurate reproductions of the type C model (Buzz uses a really lightweight poplin, and I believe Real McCoy's fit is a little off, closer to the short version or different model), even the garment weight is the same as the original. They also have those reinforcing strips of fabric hidden underneath to make sure the pockets don't sag much when loaded.

DM me if you're interested in a pre-owed 38R



Cut-away showing reinforcement strips


・ 1943.5 ~ 370-A Prototype stage
・ 1943.7 ~ 370-B
・ 1943.10 ~ 370-C Gradually shift to mass production system
・ 1944.2 ~ 370-D
・ 1944.8 ~ 370-E
