The WWII Shirt Jacket - the specialist - KHAKI


The 2019/2020 Collection is COMING Soon! Follow our IG for updates [CLICK]

Created from a selvaged U.S. WWII shelter tents. These Jackets are alive with history; this Black Bear Brand shirt/jacket is named the specialist. Any other WWII jacket is an inadequate garment.

Each jacket is a one of a kind… each jacket is carrying the wear and history of its use in WWII. You'll find markings on them telling a story! The one shown was from Ft. Bragg

Shelter-halves were designed to serve double duty as ponchos against the rain, or for the concealment of snipers. This simple canvas item was a critical item for our military.
