    M1941 Jacket

    I am wanting to get a set of uniform and jacket that the Americans used in WW2.

    I'm after the M1941 Field Jacket, plus some pants and a shirt from the same era.

    I have found a place in the states that have them but the shipping is massive. A full set of uniform and jacket is US$112 for postage alone.

    I would say im a size 42 jacket and shirt, plus 88cm pants.

    A long shot, but if anyone has some they want to get rid of, let me know.

    Size guide, hope it's helpful:

    I note an interesting point about mil trousers being worn high to avoid splitting at the crotch seam. Alleviates builder's crack too I suppose.

    I'd try ebay first instance. I take it this is the M41 you are looking for:

    Yes that's the one. Ideally I'm after a set of uniform that's the same as worn on Band of Brothers

    I have found a company in the states. US$169 for the jacket and pants. But new replica stuff. Will have to decide if I just want the jacket or the set.

    M41 Field jacket by Mil-Tec sturm

    Buy from the UK. They have a decent first-world postal service. USA postal costs are more like postal costs out of Pakistan.
