    Do any of you know when I can pick up a reasonably cheap m51 parka? (online)

    Obviously if I had the money I'd go straight here http://www.fishtailparkas.com/m1951_...tail_parka.htm, but I'm a stereotypical skint student.

    And if I won the lottery Id make a public announcement for an m48, but do any of you LADs know where I can find a m51 for a fair price?

    Cheers.


    (oh, and it must have a fur-trimmed hood LADs.)



    Fingers crossed this isn't a thread everyone ignores.

    Ebay?
    I've scoured high and low all over the internet, people on ebay are only selling the hoods or the liners, not the entire coat, and the ones that are, are doing so for rather high prices.

    Funny this should be posted, as I've just had one arrive for winter. It's not an original M51, but is a very good reproduction, and it looks much nicer in real life than it does on the photos

    http://www.jumpthegun.co.uk/product/M51_Fishtail_Parka.

    Comes in at £95, so obviously much cheaper than the genuine ones. I was sceptical about it at first, but it really is very nice.

    Yeah, no fur hood. I prefer it that way to be honest, but I have no idea what to recommend for you, sorry.

    I doubt you're gonna find an original for under £300 - that seems to be the going rate.

    The best I've come across is this for around £135, but I suspect it falls under the heading of "modern trash" and isn't the kind of thing you're looking for. Sorry I can't be of more help. :erm:
