The M65 jacket has been through it all. Originally designed for soldiers to keep dry during monsoonal rainstorms in Southeast Asia (and named after the year it was created – 1965), it’s been making fashion waves for decades. Slip into one and immediately be ready to take on your own adventure.
The M65 is as practical as it is stylish. It’s designed to keep out the rain, and has a concealable hood that rolls away for convenience. The jacket is lightweight, yet durable with the wind or rain.
But why do we really love the M65 field jacket so much? It looks great on basically everyone with its flattering, slimming silhouette. The military influence adds a touch of vintage style and adventure to any outfit; the timeless design has looked good for 50 years – and we’re willing to bet it’ll look great for another 50.
We have a lot to thank the military for – one of which being fashion styles. From the bomber jacket, aviator sunglasses and the template for extra-sturdy boots, the army and air force have inadvertently given fashion some of its most enduring (and stylish) items.
Its popularity grew as military style was adopted by rock stars and movie stars. Now, with rich history, and a timeless look, military-inspired jackets have become cultural icons with their trending vintage style – showing up on designer runways and every fashion blogger’s must-have list.
The M65 jacket is both stylish and rugged which makes it an ideal pairing with worn-in denim or dark jeans and sturdy boots.
Throw the M65 jacket over a denim button-down on warm spring days or a cozy sweater on colder evenings – it looks great both ways.
The M65 works well at a spring music festival, your favorite local park or to tackle your morning commute. The flexible fabric also makes it easy to layer underneath or on top making this jacket extra versatile.
Invest in one and never go out of style. These M65 jackets are slick, rooted in timeless military heritage, but are updated for modern life. So, whether you’re headed to meet friends at the bar or heading to work, you can brave the elements in classic style.
