Thanks winter and Gail. Sounds like there weren't many 609s (unpopular?). As far as measurements, it's a 42, so hopefully that'll let folks know what they're getting into. Pricewise, I couldn't find any that have been sold recently, so that's kind of a barrier to putting it up for sale here: I don't know what to ask for it. Hmmm....
Mike, Just a little input older jackets were a smaller cut. Though the jacket is a 42 it may be closer in sizing to a szie 40. When posting you should include the underarm pit to pit measurement, shoulder width, back length and sleeve length. There were not too many made, but that may be a good thing for a collector looking for a style that did not have alot of production making it a rarer older jacket. Good Luck. Gail
The Perfecto 609 has also existed in brown version.
I owned one, bought originaly in 1992, in a US military clothes shop.
Because the first owner use "pin's" on the collar, there is 2 hole.
To repare this, and to be in accordance with the originals sign of the mark I bought Rothco General Star:
,in order to "remember" the 613 insigns...
It's a geat jacket, more easy to wear than 618 or 115, with a very large inside pocket and a sizing more larger...
It's my favorite of my collection.
