    Bonjour Mates.

    Here I have a completely unissued M-47 jacket to show you, this particular one is dated 1954, and still has all the makers stamps intact. I think these have some interesting features, such as the hidden buttons, and the piece of cloth attached to the collar,to prevent the elements getting through. All in all a nice piece of vintage Militaria in my humble opinion, feel free to comment Wink

    Salut,Here is a much later model M-47 jacket, I would assume this one is early 60's, as the colour is vastly different than the 50's models as can be seen from the example shown. The colour of this one is a OG, whereas the the first issue Jackets were much more Khaki in colour ( see previous photos). This one is made by PAUL BOYÉ.

    NB-If you have any more information, please feel free to add any thing.
