This is an original WW2 B-3 Flight Jacket. These were used on high altitude bombing missions by the United States Army Air Forces.
USA Air Force log on sleeve has nice color. Leather is not dried and is still flexible, but it has some flaking on the surface. Zipper and snaps are tarnished blue. Metal buckles have light rust and/or tarnish.One tear near the front hem, and two very small tears by the bottom hem near zipper (see pic), otherwise no rips, no holes. Has two leather straps under the collar and one on each side/back near the base (one has a loop that has come undone on one end). Shearling line is thick and plush. Shearling collar has some greying. I've not tried cleaning this as I did not want to mishandle it and/or ruin the integrity. I do not see any prior repairs. Due to the tarnishing on the zipper teeth, I did not zip this for measurements, but I did lay it flat and pulled the zipper edges together. Shoulders (seam to seam):19. Chest (pit to pit x 2): 40. Length shoulder to hem: 25. Outer sleeve (seam to cuff end): 24. Inner sleeve (pit to cuff end): 18.
