A WWII sheepskin flying jacket used by the USAAF. The Type B-6 was introduced in 1939 and classed as an intermediate, it was an alternative to the Type B-3 which was a more bulky sheepskin flying jacket which caused issue in terms of movement especially in the confines of a cockpit.
Due to the nature of the natural raw materials we use and the traditional method of manufacture we employ it is not always possible to meet exact measurement requirements. The products we build are not designed to be tailored like a suit, they will after a "break in" period soften and mold to the shape of your own body, our jackets are built to be worn. We do not use a production line system or have racks of jackets ready to ship, each and every jacket is made to order, individually handcrafted here in Scotland by one of our specialists.
Bespoke patterns can be created if preferred, please contact us direct with specifications for a full quote.
