RAF / FAA  Irvin flying jacket - hooded

RAF / FAA Irvin flying jacket - hooded

Code: J23652


Thermally Insulated Flying Suit, Jacket.  Physically measures approximately 46” so should be suitable for around a 42” chest.  This example is of four-panel front and rear construction (see photographs).  The leather is generally in very good overall condition retaining much of the original chromed finish & flexibility.  There is some scuffing on the sleeves and slight thinning at the shoulders but most of the leather appears to be strong and there is just one small old repaired tear on the right breast.  It would now doubt look even better with the application of a light leather dressing.  Fitted with its original yellow painted hood.  Very good dense fur lining but there are a couple of small bare patches and a tiny hole in the hood.    Both cuffs and waist have a good amount of fur remaining.   Good belt.  The jacket retains the original 'Lightning' main zip and 'D-o-T' sleeve zips each with leather puller tags.  All are in good working order.   Overall, a very good example of the hooded Irvin.  Stock code J23652.
