Vtg WWII Army Air Force A-2 Leather Flight Bomber Jacket 42 L
Snap pockets and collar points. Hard to find larger size. Leather, cotton inner liner, & wool ribbing for cuffs and waist. I can't tell if the leather is steerhide or horsehide, but I'm sure it's one of those. Chest in inches, so a Large. Check below for measurements, sizing has changed since those days. Leather is supple but flaked away. Some drying at the usual wear spots; outer collar at the edges fold, creases of elbow and arm, etc. All hardware is present and intact. Cotton ribbing has multiple moth nibbles. Inside liner is in great shape just a few rips at the armpit. Other than those issues this jacket is really cool, has a great patina.
