  • Pros:
  • Review: I am 5'7 and 180lbs. I have a 40 inch chest and I bought the large because I figured I would use a sweater or maybe even sneak in a cardigan underneath. The leather has a true aroma. When I tried it on, wearing a light sweater, it fit perfectly. I even liked the mouton color!

    The only drawbacks for this particular model were that I could not take the mouton off and there were no side pockets. Where I live, the mouton is a bit too much for everyday wear and the side pockets are necessary if you are not wearing gloves. These two things I mention have nothing to do with the workmanship, the quality of the materials, or the customer service. It's just a personal preference.

    So, I returned this beauty and opted for the lambskin G-1 flight jackets. It has a removable mouton (although the color is different) and the side pockets. Can't wait for it to get here.

Excellent replacement!

  • By John from Carmel IN USA on Thursday, February 18, 2021
  • Pros: Quality construction with quality materials.
  • Review: I bought this to replace identical jack stolen from me in 1968 in Newport, RI. This jacket is identical in every way. It exceeded my expectations, more rugged zipper than original. The fit and finish is all I expected and more.

Just Like Dad Wore

  • By Richard from Eldridge IA USA on Wednesday, February 17, 2021
  • Pros: Goatskin leather will last years.
  • Review: This is the same jacket my father wore while serving in the Navy for over 20 years as a Naval Aviator. Great quality, and runs on the small side so order up one size if you plan on wearing a shirt or other undergarment. Always a conversation starter, especially with my fathers squadron patches on the jacket!
