Navy G-1 Leather Jacket-This example is produced in brown leather that is in fine condition. It could use some leather conditioner as it is a bit stiff but there is no damage. There is minor wear and discoloration from use. All pockets, buttons and zippers are original and in fine condition. The collar fleece shows a bit of wear. Same for the waist and cuff bands, which has a few small holes as well. Both of the cuff bands have tears. The interior is fully lined in brown rayon. There is some discoloration and wear plus a few holes. There is a single vertical pocket. The original manufacturer tag is present. It says “Bureau of Aeronautics USN, Flight Jacket, Intermediate G-1. It is a size 42. Under the collar are large silver scripted initials that say USN. We have been made aware of the vintage of this jacket (thanks Leo!). The jackets with this contract number were produced between 1951 and 1960. According to our source, this example is from 1955. He also informed us that the zipper has been replaced with one from the 1970's or 1980's. A good example overall!.
