Big fan of the N3b parka from alpha industries,  which also comes in a slim fit. I wore my dad's until it died of old age and then bought a new one, and I still live it. Keeps you warm, great for scooters, comfy pockets , and a classic look, very Ice Station Zebra.

Great coat but trying to steer clear of the jet fighter look , plans to visit m/c. Outdoor stores this w/end.

Might be worth having a look in TKMax too . I was in there today and they have a few parkas of varying styles from a few manufactures . Sadly , they had no M-1951's in stock. . :o

Decent looking coat Rocketman , if maybe a couple too many pockets . .

Will you be sewing any badges onto it. .

That is a monstrosity, looks like a Mod in a hippie coat. . :D

There is a subtle way to do it and that isn't it. Similarly , l saw a guy about my age in a supermarket a couple of weeks ago with a UJ , a target , a Lambretta badge and a Jam badge all on the one sleeve of a green parka . If he had taken the parka off he would have just blended in with the masses . .
