The M-1951 parka is the first choice for those wanting the original vintage mod parka. Produced in 1951 by the US Army, this was "the" fishtail parka the original mods wore in 1960's britain. Today, 59 years later, they are one of the most rare and sought after fashion icons.

And for those seeking to treat themselves to one, then you are in the right place. There are quite a few reasons why we are the worlds Number One, but the most important reason is that we are truly passionate about what we do and we work hard to get it right first time.

When looking to spend on such a coat, you want to know you will get the best quality and best fit for you and that's what we do best. Unlike many of the "jonny come lately's" who have jumped on the parka band wagon, we know enough about M-51's to know how to sell them so you get exactly what you want and our standards for quality and customer service are known the world over.

Every parka we handle undergoes a complete inspection and restoration process to ensure it is ready to wear and appreciate in value. Before being classed as ready to go, every M-51 is professionally cleaned and inspected and undergoes a complete restoration of repairs, replacing zips, poppers, cuffs, buttons or indeed anything that needs doing to make it up to our standards.

And our standards for what is ready to go is simple. If I would not wear it, I will not sell it. Hence why Film Stars, Rock Stars, TV and Magazines come to us and everyone gets the same level of top end service.

The end result is that every parka is in the best possible condition for 59 years old and comes complete with their fully restored original M-51 liners and we even fully re-trim the M-51 hoods with fresh new Wolf fur.

A fully re-trimmed M-51 wolf fur hood is worth £100 alone !!

We even remove the wire from the hood when we re-fur it so the hood will hang correctly :)

And of course ALL are Guaranteed 100% Original M-1951 US Military Issue by the Worlds leading collector and dealer, fishtailparkas.com
