Owners of IH M-65's correct me if I'm wrong: Seasonally it seems like the weight of this guy would bridge the gap between jean jacket weather and IHM-15 (aka best jacket in the world) weather?

It's about 15C where I'm at now- still denim jacket weather.  I'd probably wear mine when it get's closer to 10C.  I could probably get away with wearing the M65 now with a t-shirt underneath. 

There are others that still like to wear shorts btw 10C-15C  ::)

I wish the IHM-15 was still around.  :'(

Love that.  Even if it is not accurate, it will forever be part of my version of the truth....

It does strike all the right notes as a bit of social history. The whole subtext to the narrative about upper class brits, colonialism, blue collar Americans dressing themselves and gender. Very human, very believable...

A potential hole in the logic is that zips didn't become standard on clothing until well into the 20th century, but I guess that if the norms for buttoning and other older methods of front fastening clothing were just transferred to zips then it would still bare out.

Ok, well I guess mine doesn’t look that worn in, especially in artificial light.. the color holds so well. However, the abrasion areas do fade, the pockets and edges scuff..

This is an OG 02 I believe. It’s my “winter coat”

@Appfaff That is a nicely worn jacket. For how long did you have them? I just got the same jacket in Olive. Having seen your M65 in Black, I'm wondering if I should have indeed gone for the Black. IH stuff is always tempting!

Thanks @Giles - It's my wife's favorite piece of clothing I own.

@jothishan - I can't take all the credit for the wear, as I bought it used about 2-3 years ago, but I indeed wear it a lot during the cooler months, and even rainy days here in Northwest Florida. I have washed it once, and I'm sure it was washed at least once prior to me having it. I love the black, it looks even better with the fading that mine has endured around the lanyards, pockets, and obviously, the cuffs as the black sateen gives way to a very sheen-free grey coloring.

I honestly would love a Green one to compliment as well, because I believe the green fades equally, if not more, beautifully. Check out MadMonday's photos of his from 2014-2015 time frame on the IHM-02 thread I believe and you will get an idea of how the green gives way to a nice military feeling color.

Cheers,

Bad ass coat... It's much heftier than I imagined. Not exactly warm once you get past 10 C or so, but it layers perfectly over my Canada Goose hybridge lite coat.

@Giles The dims on this are similar/marginally larger than on the IHW-13-GR (which i have). If the Melton wool version is slightly snug on me, then staying at the same size with this is wise, yes? I'm basing this theory on the IHW-13 being generously quilted, while I assume a ventile lining is quite thin?

I would say so.

@AdamC any views?

@neph93 Yeah I think the same size.  The IHM-27's run pretty consistent but if there is any dims you want very slightly larger we can try and find one for you

Thanks gents. I can use the IHW-13 only over lighter layers. It is a very warm coat so this is not a big problem.

These are brilliant, but I’d want to put a UHF or hoodie under them. I fear the arms and body would be way too long on the XL. I’m fairly sure the lighter material and thinner lining will give me the room I need in an L.

A slightly wider body (shoulders and chest) would be ideal, if that is possible.

Thanks for the replies, gents.
