    That looks like a commercial item, but no matter... anything made in that cloth is super hard to come by.

    Here's pictures of my new Leopard acquisition. You can see the pockets are pleated vs. the flat pockets of the pic that started this thread. It also has arm pockets, which the other one does not. As far as I know only this parka and a long jacket were trialed. The parka is the only one I am familiar with MartinD informed me about the other one) so I can't speak to what features it might have.

    Here is mine.  The collar has been cut down (expertly done, looks like by a tailor).  It has the pleated pockets, like Steve's.

    Neat! Looks like someone wanted to turn it into a tunic instead of a parka. Are the flaps for liner buttons still intact, or were those sliced out and repaired?

    I'm not sure.  The inside has a large "pocket" in the liner, as you can make out in the photo below.

    Yup! Everything is as it should be, except for the nicely done collar modification. I'm curious what the front closure buttons look like as mine seem to be a mix of original and replacement, but I'm not sure which is which!

    Excellent! Standard bakelite military buttons. How about for the small pocket ones? Those also crested?

    Thanks!!
