Quick Overview

Iconic leather jacket that was used by air crews (and anyone who could get one) throughout WWII. The tag under the collar is present. It is one of the few that has no maker's name but the contract number identifies it as a the Cable Raincoat Co. production. The jacket has a brass Conmar zipper which works as it should. The wool knitted cuffs and waist band show wear and have damage and holes but are original to the jacket (and not replaced as often the case). The hook at the left side of the collar is no longer present and the female snap of the righthand pocket is gone. The leather is slightly stiff overall but this can probably be solved with some treatment, if desired. A-2 leather flight jackets are exceedingly difficult to find, especially with the orginal knitted parts.

Good condition.
