There are several product lines we have recently picked up that our customers asked us to start carrying. While we are very cautious about what kinds of inventory we stock, there is something that we really liked about the Rothco outerwear that we really liked. We recently found out about another regional Army Navy store closing down and to be honest, there really isn’t much opportunity to acquire military surplus clothing like there use to be. So many of these stores try to pick up modern military production clothing and the profits aren’t just there. Rothco Jackets like Rothco MA-1 Flight Jacket is only $36 and gets people through most of the fall is a light windbreaker. Everyone has a variation of the M-65 jacket and Rothco is one of them. They do a good job of making vintage military jackets.
The only negative we’ve gotten so far is that Rothco could do a better job of putting better quality zippers on their jackets. The Rothco Jackets that we sell the most of are the Soft Shell jackets, there are considerable differences in the weight and tactical or concealed carry applications so do some research into what works best for you. The Rothco A-2 Leather Flight Jacket is an outstanding version but on the much higher price. With all of the options you might consider, Rothco hits at a much more reasonable price point for wear and tear clothing.
