Hi, what about the Barbour International Suit M12 NATO Stock jacket? Maybe you know more about that jacket. Thank you and have a nice weekend!
Ah, the Nato M12 jacket and M13 trousers. I’ve been on the hunt for these for a while. There’s a jacket on ebay right now that looks great: Nato Jacket and a mint pair of trousers. The M12 issue is green and the M7 issue is black. The M7 is even more rare than the M12, in my opinion. Check the label on the inside left side of the liner. It should have a Stock Number and Contract Number indicating that it was built for Nato. These are easier to find on the UK eBay site, although I did find one for sale in my town here in the US, but it was the wrong size for me. Also, broaden your search to all of Europe. I once got a great deal on a A7 from Italy, so it’s worth looking.
What do I think of them? They’re awesome. Really unique as there were so few produced and really well built. In fact, you might have reignited my search! I hope you’re not looking for a 44! Well, if you do find one, please submit some pictures of it and you wearing it, so we can post them here at Thornproof. Cheers and happy hunting!
