Do you think real M65 jackets are comfortable?

    I really want a jacket in its style, but I can't really find much that is within my price range that i would like. I'm thinking about going to an army surplus to check them out. :o

    ive worn my dad's m65s

    they're real thick and dont really compliment the body

    id get a french f2 if i were to get real surplus
    go out and look for arizona jeans m65
    cheap and it has a waist draw string to give the skinny look

    I wouldn't really say any of them are real comfortable persay. Most of them are thin and don't really have a much of a liner in them if any at all.. I usually wear mine when I'm wearing a tee and a hoodie so...

    I got mine from a surplus store and its comfortable. I posted pics a while back but deleted it. No pic of my wearing it though. I'll try and find it again.

    I picked up a great M65 from H&M the other day. But its just plain ol' cotton and its unlined, so I gotta layer up for the winter. Great slim cut fit though.

    I got one from club Monaco that I really like.. And another really slim fit one from the store that looks like forever 21 but has guys stuff too down in Dallas.. The brand is called "heritage 1981".. Cost like $20 and its really nice

    Just for the record, I tried on an M65 jacket and it was uncomfortable and unflattering :o
