B-9 Parka

http://www.ebay.com/itm/401025167306

This vintage parka was made in the 1950s.  It is nearly identical to a B-9 parka, but with a civilian “Parka” label instead of the military contract label.  Somewhat unusually, it has French made Emar zippers.

Chest (pit to pit): 25″ (doubled = 50″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 19″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (base of collar to hem): 33″
