Just taken receipt of this Buzz M-43. I've never owned an original or repro of this Field Jacket before so wasn't quite sure what to expect. One thing I personally don't particularly care for is the buttons, which is something I'd never really noticed before as one usually sees these jackets buttoned up. The other is something that I'm not sure applies to all M-43's or just this Buzz repro, and that's the front side seam and the lining being slightly shorter than the outer shell, which as you can see makes the jacket bunch up and sit rather awkwardly, mainly at the side. This doesn't seem to be a flaw, but has been deliberately done this way. Were originals also made like this? Otherwise it seems to be a nicely made jacket, with the patches adding a bit of welcome colour. It can only have been worn a handful of times if at all.
