    Great look. The surplus military jacket is a great casual jacket, I own one myself. It has a removable liner which makes it great for moderate to cold weather. Some of the older vintage jackets are 100% cotton, which aren’t very water resistant so consider a waterproofing treatment if it’s to be worn in the rain.

      Thanks, Axel. Mine isn’t really surplus. It’s a repro or military-inspired piece made for general retail, and it is 100% cotton. I’d love to find a real military one eventually.
