HUNGARIAN ARMY SHORT SLEEVE SHIRT - 1960’S
Long sleeve shirts transformed into short sleeve shirt with two extra large pockets.
This item is well known as the M65 field jacket and is part of the M65 uniform. It was made with a resistant olive green shaded 100% cotton fabric and was used between 1965 and 2000.
The Communist Cuban Army, who in turn were inspired by the US forces, were the inspiration for the M65 uniform.
We can then assume indirectly that the Hungarian Army derived this uniforms from the American Army and this is the reason why the M65 is almost identical to the M51 developed by the USA during the Korean War.
The M65 was distributed amongst all ranks of the Military, Officials included, and was also worn by Police Officers, even if in this case it had a different grayish color.
The M65 was intended to be used for both barracks and the combat field.
MYAR commitment is to bring back to life past used military garments that have been stocked for long time in darkened warehouse, bringing back the light in the present time, for a second life in a civil environment.
The up-cycling process involving MYAR is not only an aesthetic intervention but also a process of historical knowledge
On each garment is applied a QR code that, once scanned, will tell the historical origin of the piece and the type of workmanship that has been made.
This process of customization is also witnessed by a small white cloth sachet containing scraps of fabrics: a part of the past of this garment, which has been modified from the original to be worn today for the future coming.
