Known as M65, the jacket was designed by the US Army to replace the previous M-51. The M65 was designed to protect American troops from the sudden climate changes and frequent monsoon rains that they would have to face in Vietnam. It became the symbol of the counter-culture of '68, a quirk of nonconformists, and protection for anyone who needed a jacket for little money from a thrift shop.
After the M65 became the uniform for all those enrolled in the US Army, it became the aesthetic uniform of rebels and politicised intellectuals. It was worn by John Lennon and Bob Dylan in real life, De Niro in Taxi Driver, Al Pacino as the incorruptible Serpico, Sylvester Stallone in Rambo and Woody Allen as the fictitious neurotic in the spolight in Annie Hall.
