Great repro (2023-05-25)
An excellent quality repro with the expected high standard of materials and stitching.
Fits true to size. If you measure your chest, order that size and you will have a jacket that is well-fitted but also with enough room for a liner. I ordered a size 50L. At 6'4" the sleeves are about perfect, but I wouldn't want the overall length any shorter. 50L is almost exactly the same size as an original, unissued X-Large/Regular that I have in my collection.
Some small upgrades such as adding full-color patches and swapping the dark green buttons (which are more consistent with 1960's made M-51 jackets) for the earlier dark brown ones (used in the 1950's) make for a near-perfect replica of a jacket that is quite difficult to find nowadays.

Top notch reproduction. Accurate Sizing! (2023-04-21)
This is a great reproduction. Serious attention to detail. Quality materials and good craftsmanship. I ordered a size 50L and I am happy with the sizing. If you have longer arms (like sleeve size 36/37), I would recommend the size long, it is a great fit. The cinching strings at the waist and bottom seem long, but I prefer this over them being too short. You can always trim them if you want to.
