      I have this alpha m65. How do I get the epaulettes to lay flat like I see many other people’s? mine stick up a bit above the shoulder and I don’t like the profile. I considered having them removed by a tailor. I also think a lot of m65s you see online are vintage so not sure if that has to do with them laying flat.wondering if there’s a way to get that effect on a newer jacket…

      why not. i literally have the one in the OPs pic. it’s really awesome apart from the fact that i got one in medium and it’s gigantic (6ft)

          i dont know. i have had mine for several years, it’s really thick with fleece padding for the harsh winters and it’s holding fairly well.

          Kek, i recognize how asians are alot into workwear. Probably because asian males aren’t seen as masculine like other races of males.

            Or maybe because their family members work in sweatshops, so they feel at home in such clothes. Don’t you feel like an ignorant racist now?

        Japan was gifted a heap of primo quality looms and manufacturing equipment during the reconstruction that are still autistically maintained and used to this day.

        It’s the only place on earth that can still make vintage workwear and ww2-cold war era military repros at the same quality as the originals.

          This legit makes me sad and I hope they maintain those machines forever. Funny that Japan inhereted the legacy of American heritage.

            Don’t have time to write a short essay for you but look into the history of Toyo Enterprise, there are a few other surviving companies from this time doing the same thing that got their start doing uniform contracts for the US military

    Levi’s makes solid ones, I think, they’re lined though. Got my first from Costco for 30 bucks and regretted not getting more. Just got some more but they’re noticeably lower quality. Still excellent jackets

      It doesn’t fit as well, has a weird sheen, and the plastic zipper looks cheap. I use this for going /out/ but I’d rather just stick with the original for any sort of outfit.

    Nothing is cringe if it is well-made and you can pull it off. Everything is a replica (with a few mods) of something from the past.

    irl these (legit and reps) never look good. people always look shifty, suspicious and untrustworthy in them. i guess some people aspire to that aesthetic
