"I gave you a pretty tough challenge and you came up trumps!I called with the order on Thursday pm requesting delivery for Tuesday am - just to make it interesting you had to also complete the real fur switch!!
Well you completed your mission perfectly as the coat arrived about 9.30 am on Tuesday.
Top job & a top PARKA - I couldn't have asked for more!"

"Fantastic looking piece of kit"
"Just a quick email to say a big Thankyou for getting the parka here so quickly for a birthday present, after chatting on the phone. Fantastic looking piece of kit and a brilliant service from you.! Well done and thanks again, he's going to be well chuffed."
All the best, Rob Holgate UK
Received my M-1951 Parka today.It fits perfectly for my requirements, i.e. to wear it over my business suit, to commute to work on my Scoot, just as we discussed and you promised.
It was more than I wanted to pay originally, but for a piece of history, born around the same time as me, it is worth every penny, and indeed more, (which I never ever admit)
Putting it on transports me to a different time and place, the fondly remembered past, recapturing some of my happy adolescent memories.
My wife will kill me for spending our hard earned, but , I can tell you, it is worth it. "Brilliant"

We advise to leave 6 to 8 inches spare underneath a parka for wearing jumpers, suits etc. Plus it helps achieve the correct look as these parka's are not meant to worn fitted. Therefore, a person with a 42 inch chest measurement would require size small.

"Fast and Reliable Service"
"Thanks for a fast and reliable service. My parka (with wolf fur hood) arrived safe and sound and looks great. Also, your recommendations on sizing were spot on - the small is definitely large enough! I can't wait for the cold weather to arrive.
David Thackery, Australia
"Thrilled, Spectacular, Awesome"
"Thank you for all your help with finding me an original M-1951 Parka. The package arrived today much sooner than expected (only took three days to cross the pond). When I opened the box, I was thrilled. As describe, the parka and liner were in near un issued condition. In fact, they were spectacular! The Wolf fur on the detachable hood is awesome and really adds character to the parka. Please tell your refurbished they did one heck of a job. Finally, the advice you gave me regarding sizing was spot on and the parka fits exactly as desired."
Scott, Connecticut, USA
"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the parka. Size is perfect. The condition of it is excellent - new and old at the same time.
I have practically not left the house without it since I received it in December. It is both smart and practical (the weather in Denmark have been very snowy and cold) and I really enjoy the hood with fur (my first parka came without fur and hood liner). Definetely my best x-mas present in years."
