This recreation of the jacket model worn by the character “Wardaddy” (Brad Pitt) in the movie ‘FURY’ is embellished with high-quality, mil-spec, embroidered 2nd Armored Div shoulder device and sergeant stripes - exquisitely hand-sewn down in cross-hatch stitching.
Set in the final weeks of World War II, Fury is a brutally honest movie depicting the true face of war. Ground combat is dirty, cold, dangerous. War exacts a terrible cost from those who survive to return home. David Ayer’s magnum opus, Fury, depicts World War II as it happened without glorifying the unforgiving violence, death, and carnage of battle. Brad Pitt portrays Staff Sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier, a hardened veteran and commander of an M4 Sherman tank nicknamed “Fury”. Very little of Wardaddy’s background is directly revealed in the film although a number of clues point to his prior combat experience in World War I and perhaps service during in interwar years. As such, Collier is an “old school” tanker with a preference for uniforms first introduced before the start of WWII.
Usage of the Tanker Jacket, however, far transcended the Armored Forces. The inherent stylish good looks, comfort, practicality and warmth of the Tanker Jacket made it a favourite among all troops; officers very commonly sought and wore the Tanker Jacket.
The basic jacket has been copied many times over in a variety of civilian jacket styles since its original issue to the U. S. Army in 1941.
'Fury' 1940s 1st Tanker Jacket US Army is durable in many ways, exemplified by its resilience throughout the decades, and it has proven itself to be a truly timeless piece of American fashion and history.
