    Default Half frozen Tough Guys with Kalashnikovs

    In actuality, those coats appear to be pretty warm. So, never-mind the half-frozen assumption...

    In any case, I do not possess much interest in post-1960 military related antiques, but these two images reached out to me as "must haves" when I first encountered them as offerings for sale.
    In the case of reality, I would not want to be at the business end of those AKs - or being pushed about by either of those two.

    Glad I bought them as they have grown on me even further upon receipt.

    The second is dated 1977.

    I wouldn't mind having a coat like one of those for here in the Upper Peninsula Winters...

    Interesting, the inscription on the vehicle refers to Oppenstine & Coppel logistic service, Dortmund, FRG.

    The coats are called "Tulup" and dates back to the early 1900's. 1904 or 1909 or something like that

    Cheers
