Product Description
 



Flight jacket issued in early 1944 to replace the leather jackets. Although intended for issue to Army Air Corps flight crews, these jackets were often obtained and used by regular ground troops. Generals McAuliffe and Patton are both seen in wartime photos wearing B-10's. OD7 cotton sateen exterior, fake fur lining (looks real but it's not...),artificial mouton collar, Talon zipper, and realistic labels.

Compared to other reproductions: These are entirely new creations- they are NOT the same ones we had some years ago. Totally different contractor. Our B-10's are not sold by any other vendor. Our sizing is accurate, pattern correct and they are a very nice coat.

Fit: Order by normal chest size. These are slightly more roomy than originals- very similar in proportion to Tanker jackets. The body length of our jackets are 1-2" longer than the like size originals (S= 36, M = 40, L = 44). Back length is measured from the base of the collar to the end of the waistband on the back.
Sleeve length is comparable to that on original jackets, and is measured from the shoulder to end of cuff.

Why don't we use real fur? We enquired about using genuine lambskin and woolen pile. It is possible, but the cost of the jackets would be approximately triple. It also makes them dry clean only, less comfortable to many, very attractive to moths, with little or no increase in thermal value. Did I mention the price would triple?
