The G-1 has been the primary leather flight jacket for Naval Aviators dating back to the 1920's. Marine Aviators, who received their training under Navy direction, also wore the G-1. For a period of time after beginning late into WWII, the G-1 leather flight jacket was even supplied to Army airmen. This 27" thick supple antique lambskin G-1 jacket has a detachable sheepskin collar, two-way front pockets, an intricate lining depicting the story of "Wings of Gold". This jacket is imported. Manufactured by Schott Brothers NYC.
