My friend made a replica of the terminator jacket awhile back. He found a grey M-65 jacket at a thrift store here in Chicago IL, USA back in the early 2000's I think he said. what needle in a haystack find! He wears the jacket normally, because of the whole 80s punk look. I wanted to make one of these jackets too, but have never got around to doing it. Grey is one of the most rare colors of the M-65 jacket. To find the exact brand of the jacket used in T1 would be near impossible considering the lack of information on the jacket itself. Like the post above, obscure colored m-65's were stopped, just like most of the other clothing of the 80s. I thought the only ones left were ones somewhere hidden in retro/vintage clothing stores never to be found, which sucks for us! After many hours of hard research i have located for sale on amazon new grey M-65 jackets!!!! Its a new off brand jacket that is even much less money than the original brand the USA used in Vietnam "Alpha Jackets". This is to my knowledge the only reproduction ever made. It is AT LEAST 95% identical to the original T1 jacket.

My friend gave me detailed information on how to make the jacket and i will share them with you. Most of the ideas are from my friend and not my own doing.
Once you get the jacket, get a large square piece of leather, "i think ebay has some"
Find some way to scrunch the waist of the jacket and duct tape the inside of the waist thoroughly to ensure it wont detach.
Next get a can of black spray paint , Matte finish would look best, and very very lightly mist over the areas on the jacket you desire to give it that "dirty" look.
Compare the back of the jacket pictures, and the leather piece from the top of the jacket to tip of the triangle below the waist line. Get a ruler, or something you can draw a straight line with of some sort. With a white Paint marker "works best on leather" outline the shape of leather piece to match the T1 jacket. Get a very sharp utensil, possibly a large razor sharp pair of scissors, and slowly cut the outline, take your time to ensure the best cut.
Do the exact same with the elbow piece, inter jacket collar, and right shoulder strap extension "the thing thats supposed to hold the chain".
After you have all the pieces cut, i would bring them to a tailor, and get them sewn on because they have professional equipment and time to sew leather. This ensures the leather pieces will stay in place, glue is no good it will peel after awhile.
Next get about 200-300 1/2 pyramid studs to be safe, "you can buy them in bulk". Once you have the studs get a sharp dart, place stud into the leather, then poke the 2 holes, place stud into holes, clamp the ends of the stud with a flathead screwdriver"me and my friend are both into punk and have much experience studding leather this works the best".
Apply all the studs to match the T1 jacket.
Im not too sure about the chain, i think you have a good lead on it, ill keep on the lookout for it and keep you informed.
Hope that I helped, and think its awesome someone is into the same project I am!
Now all you need is the studded biker gloves, double H flat toe biker boots with right strap studded, a ugly shirt and a really bad haircut, then you can walk into a gun store and ask for a 45 longslide with laser sighting. haha if you have any more questions post back -Andrew
