    So I can get this snow/ski parka, but I'm not sure what it is.
    It's reversible from white to grey-greenish, it has fur around the edge of the hood, it's an over the head type of smock/parka, and it has a
    chestpocket with 2 flaps on both sides.

    I only know the WW2 variants with the collar opening lower with 3 large buttons, but this one doesn't.
    The cuffs are also not with a tab and button like on those.
    Is this actually still a WW2 type, or maybe Korean War or something?

    Also, sorry for the shitty photos, it's the best by phone could do at the shop.

    It looks like one of several types from the Second World War. There was an article on these in a recent issue of Militaria magazine.
