Quick Overview

Introduced during fall 1944. Made by the Excel Garment Mfg. Co. This is one of the rarer versions made entirely of End Zone twill, a durable combination of cotton and rayon that gave the fabric a shiny appearance. This fabric was first used on B-10 flight jackets, as trim for the underarm gussets and pocket linings. For the B-15 only a few manufacturers were contracted to produce the jacket entirely of End Zone twill. The jacket has a brass Talon zipper. It works well but the insert tab is a bit weak at the fabric. The wool knitted cuffs and waist band are original to the jacket and not replaced. The knittings do have some holes. The fur collar and Alpaca liner are still quite nice. This jacket is presented in the new book 'Quand les Allies font la mode' on page 50 (see last two photos).

Good condition.
