Product Description

For the purist who wants the real thing ~ authenticated “Top Gun” U.S. Navy aviator heavy goatskin leather flight jacket, possibly made to order for a VIP.

Vintage tag size 40 Regular (be sure to read measurements below!)   True vintage "Buaer" (Bureau of Aeronautics) US Navy G-1 Flight Jacket, excellent condition, looks to have been rarely used &/or exceptionally well-cared for. 

The iconic U.S. military “bomber jacket” was first used by the Navy in the 1930’s &  standardized in the 1940’s. The G-1, as it has been known since 1951, remains the current uniform-issue of the U.S. armed forces, although goatskin leather is no longer available.

Chest:  36")

Condition & Details:  True vintage heavy goatskin leather is in excellent condition, with no drying, cracks or flaking.   Original fastenings, including  heavy duty zipper with  leather pull  and all other buttons and fastenings and closures present are present and working.   Tag reads, "Spec. No. 55 JM (AER). Contract No. N383S-51863, Flight Suits Ltd., El Cajon, CA."  Synthetic fur collar.  Large pockets both top & side entry, pen pocket, underarm ventilation grommets, large interior snap pocket (sometimes called the map pocket),  zipper with leather tassel, front zip flap has "USN" punched in and official US Navy tags sewn in. Hanging,  bi-swing back for ease of movement. Possibly made to order for a V.I.P.  Some photos are contrast-enhanced to highlight details; in general, the jacket is darker than the photos.  Only flaws are very minor beginnning of pilling and very slight fraying of the knit ribbed trim, which is a common problem with these jackets.

When a mere reproduction of this can set you back can set you back $345-$454,  why not own the real thing?
