ORG WWII US Army Air Force Star Sportswear A2 Leather Bomber Flight Jacket Sz 44. This jacket has some light moldy stuff on it, that supposedly can be easily removed with vinegar.
I havent tried it, but I did let it sit outside on a nice day, and have kept it on a mannequin in a climate controlled room since I got it. The previous owner had it on hangers in a dry cleaning bag in a closet, about the worst possible way you can store leather. It also has a very worn spot on the left shoulder from the hanger. The elastic waist band and cuffs are almost entirely complete, and are still entirely attached. Only some small holes from wear here and there.
The original liner is in great shape! The zipper still works, all snaps and buttons and other devices are still present and working.Theres even still a white cloth handkerchief in one of the pockets. I thought it was a scarf at first, but its not. I think this jacket will clean up easily and be a really really nice one. Not having any experience with that, it would break my heart (and my wallet) to try it myself and somehow damage it.
As such, I will completely ignore any requests for size measurements. It is size 44, and it fits mannequins nicely. Its very likely had a heck of a life battling Messerschmits in the skies over Europe, and it deserves to be displayed and taken care of as a historical artifact.
