Description / Bulgarian IKE Jacket with Holster

The Bulgarian IKE Jacket with Holster is a style of jacket that was popularized by General Eisenhower during World War II. This look made such an impression around the world that years later the Communist Bulgarian Army decided to make a similarly styled jacket for their officers. While this Bulgarian IKE Jacket is faithful to the original design, it does have a more low-key look than General Eisenhower's.

What this IKE jacket does have is a very unique vintage look. The style, color, buttons, and overall design are instantly recognized as being Cold War era and produced by a Warsaw-Pact aligned nation. There is also a unique feature inside of the jacket which consists of a medium sized holster that has been added to the jacket. The method used to attach the holster will ensure it sits comfortably in your jacket no matter what activity you are engaged in and will always be ready for quick draw.

Funky, retro type military wear.

This is more of a heavy duty shirt than a jacket. One thing not mentioned is that it has elastic gathers at the waist of the jacket that keeps it snug when buttoned. Inside weapon pocket is functional but not practical for conceal carry as it really imprints pistol and drags down jacket on that side..BUT it is still fun/cool to wear.
Nice Jacket

Ordered this jacket on sale, about 10$. Very good value for the price. It's good heavy canvas and in great condition. Holster is a funky shape, and might not fit a lot of pistols traditionally carried and uses a button closure. Overall, I like it.
Snappy Affordable Jacket

Very nice looking jacket for such a reasonable price. Has a great cold war look with it coming down to just the waist. Holster almost fits K frame .38 special four inch barrel, I think a six inch would fit perfectly. Would certainly buy again.
