Looks, feels and smells like flight jacket I was issued when my Naval Air Reserve Squadron VS-891 was activated in Oct 1961 when the Berlin Wall was going up.
Only worn it a few times but love the feel of it.
Somebody should tell my wife flight jackets are made to have squadron patches sewn on them. The patches are a walking history of where and what you done in your career.
This jacket is beautiful. The leather smells and looks great and the zipper is large and works well. The collar is perfect collar and size. My only problem is my arms are short for this jacket but it still works well.
Although I would love side pockets - that is not the design and everyone I read about with side pocket modifications was not as nice or the pockets were in adequate.
