G1 Flight Jacket 

 

Genuine Vintage G1 design USN, USMC flying jacket in a good, hard-wearing, durable brown steerhide. The jacket has the traditional mouton fur collar, elasticised cuffs and waistband, heavy duty Talon zipper and a quilted, lined interior.

 

The label reads: Styled by Famous Narragansette of Woonsocket Sportswear since 1927

The jacket, as the photographs reveal, is naturally distressed. You can pay a lot of money nowadays for a modern jacket based on this design which has been purposefully distressed, but you get this aged effect in with the price here!

 

The jacket is still solid, firm and strong. There is a small 2cm tear near the shoulder and the cuffs will need to be replaced. There are snags and mothing to the waistband also and this too might to be replaced in time according to your preference.

 

There is no size label, but the measurements suggest that it would fit a 42in to 44in chest. Here are the measurements with the jacket placed flat. Please check these against your own clothes for a true fit:

 

Underarm to Underarm: 24ins {61cm}

Shoulder Seam to Leather Cuff: 21 1/2ins {54.5cm}
