R.A.F. Irvin Flying Jacket


Physically measures approx. 44 so should be OK for around a 38-40 chest. Interesting example with typical late war multiple panelled front and rear sections. The leather is in excellent overall condition retaining amost all of the original chromed finish and flexibility. There are no tears/repairs or damaged areas and little surface wear or scuffing. The stitching all seems to be good and tight. All of the zips are original, in very good working condition and complete with their leather puller tabs. Excellent short to mid length dense brown fur lining with superb cuff and waist trim remaining. Retains the original belt, chain hanger and collar strap/rings. A cloth 'label' has the owner's name inked on it ' Lt. Rendall'. A superb late war example. One of the best we've seen for a long time. Stock code J15100.
