The brainchild of Hitoshi Tsujimoto, The Real McCoys was the product of Mr Tsujimoto’s transition from vintage collector and dealer, to designer, recreating some of the classic military styles from his collection. With the help of a core team of Japanese master craftsmen, The Real McCoys recreate the uninhibited, rational and innovative clothing of America in the 1940s and 1950s with an astonishing level of detail.
A classic field jacket, the Sgt. Oddball Lizard Shirt Jacket takes its name from the Lizard camouflage print developed for the French and adopted by US troops in Vietnam, composed of overlapping prints with negative space exposing the khaki canvas below. Cut from a herringbone woven canvas, it is kitted out with two chest pockets, epaulettes at the shoulders and is finished with a variety of authentic military patches.
