'Thermally Insulated Flying Suit, Jacket'. Size 5 (Ht. 5.10 - 5'11", Br. 38 - 40", Wt. 34 - 36"). Physically measures 45/6" (pit to pit) so should be suitable for around a 40 - 42" chest. This example is of typical early war configuration with single panel front and single seam back panel construction. The leather is in good '+" to very good overall condition retaining much of the original chromed finish and flexibility. There are no rips, tears or repairs. A small section of one binding tape on the left arm needs restitching and there is some damage to the zip tape on the same sleeve - see photographs. Excellent short dense fur lining and collar facing typical of early jackets. Both cuffs are worn but the waist generally retains good fur. All zips are original D-o-T brand and in good working order though the main zip slider puller tag is absent. Complete with belt and collar strap / rings. With chain hanger (needs restitiching on one end) and Air Ministry King's crown marked label with clear 1940 date. Collar eyelets for rear strap are absent. A really good looking early jacket with the magic and highly desirable 'Battle of Britain' date. Stock code J24148.
